    Found out that the sandbox is downloaded with the OVF extension but if changed to OVA it’s possible to import it.

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for letting us know. I just tried downloading and I see that file is downloading with .OVA extension.

    Thanks,
    Seth

    Same experience for me — on Mac OS X — the download results in a .ovf file that Fusion 5.03 doesn’t like. Changing to .ova allowed the import to proceed.

    Hi! I am trying to see if I can duplicate this problem. What browser are you using? My test setup is OS X 10.8 and Fusion 5.0.3. You should be getting a .ova file.

    thanks,
    Ron
