vditool.exe for VirtualBox 2.0.2 Windows does not work

Description

The EXE vditool.exe from  http://virtualbox.org/download/testcase/vditool.exe does not work for 2.0.2. but reports a missing entry point in a DLL.

I would like to convert some VMWARE image files under Windows. Can you supply the appropriate build for the EXE under Windows and publish the location? I am not able to do a build on my own.

Thanks!

vditool cannot be used to convert VMware images. VirtualBox can open .vmdk images without any conversion.

vditool is now obsolete. You should use vboxmanage instead to convert images. And as Frank already said, that's not necessary for vmware images.

vditool is not obsolete as 'VBoxManage conververtdd' does not allow a 'vditool COPYDD' to convert back to raw image...and i still need it. Or do I miss something?

Replying to czo:

vditool is not obsolete as 'VBoxManage conververtdd' does not allow a 'vditool COPYDD' to convert back to raw image...and i still need it.

A "convertdisk" command was apparently added (to the trunk) recently, hopefully that will do the trick:

Presumably it will show up in the next release.

Such a command was added with VBox 2.1.0.
