VMWare Converter issue: Error code 2147754767 (0x8004230F)

If you get the error "FAILED: Unable to create a VSS snapshot of the source volume(s). Error code: 2147754767 (0x8004230F)" while you're trying to convert a physical windows machine to a virtual one (hot cloning) you just have to check on your physical machine if the service "MS Software Shadow Copy Provider" is running. If not, start it and repeat the conversion procedure.
