Permission to perform this operation was denied (VMWare Convertor)

Encountered an issue while attempting to convert a HyperV server to a vSphere server.
Using the VMWare vCenter converter as per normal, I was faced with a roadblock when I attempted to select the hyperV server for conversion.

Error that was flagged is
"Permission to perform this operation was denied "

In the back of my mind, I was thinking out loud "How could I be denied when I was the domain admin!"
After futile attempts which included running the VMWare convertor as "Administrator", I resorted to the last means which is to turn of the UAC for my account.
After the restart following the change, all works!
Weird but true....
