I tweeted about this yesterday, but as I had about 14 questions in 24 hours I figured I would do a blog post as well so that it gets indexed by Google properly. Many folks are asking where vCenter Converter / Standalone Converter has gone to as it has disappeared from the VMware Download website. Although the links are still there on the VMware website and for instance in VMware Workstation, those links do not go to a download.
Somehow I missed this article, seems that VMware vCenter Converter was completely removed from the Download section on the VMware website. New product under development! https://t.co/8HLfmWn00f

As stated in the article I tweeted, the downloads for Converter have been completely removed from the VMware website. There are some locations on the internet where you can still find the download like on Softpedia, Filehorse, Download3k, and probably some other random sites. I do however not recommend downloading the product as it is “end-of-life”, has not been updated for years, and there are some security concerns. According to the official blog, VMware is working on a new product for P2Vs, a timeline has not been provided, but there are alternatives out there from other vendors and for V2V there’s VMware’s HCX.
