I have a VM that was exported from Server 2008. It uses the .VHD format, not .VHDX . The exported folder has a config.xml file in the root.
I have imported this VM in Win8 just fine, tweaked it and Exported it again.

But when I now move this Export to another Win8 machine it cannot be Imported: "No Virtual machines found".

I know the right folder and I have tried a few levels up and down to be sure.

Looking at my Export it still uses .VHD files but there is no config.xml

Any ideas how to proceed?

I found a solution: just copy the config.xml from the original export to the newly exported folder.
