Import of VM image to player fails

Post questions or comments related to the Virtual Machine

Tue Sep 03, 2013 11:44 am Change Time Zone

When I try to import the latest VM image HPCCSystemsVM-4.0.0-9.ova, it fails with the following error message:

The import failed because <folderpath>\HPCCSystemsVM-4.0.0-9.ova did not pass OVF specification conformance or virtual hardware compliance checks.

Click Retry to relax OVF specification and virtual hardware compliance checks and try the import again, or click Cancel to cancel the import. If you retry the import, you might not be able to use the virtual machine in VMware Player.


The earlier 3.x versions have worked for me with no hassles. The only difference I note is that I recently moved to Windows 8 OS. Could that be a problem?

I've also seen that message in Windows XP, but I simply continue and everything gets installed OK. But I don't think it's a Windows 8 issue.

Thanks Bob.

It worked this time when I continued installation after the message but then, I had to reinstall VMware Player too. Else, it would stop abruptly after the message.
