    It would seem that you should have shut down (not save state) the guest in VPC
    2004 before trying to open it in VPC 2007.

    Maybe you have to reinstall VPC 2004 and do this.

    You didn't shut the VM's down before the upgrade. There's two things
    you can do, one being to uninstall VPC 2007, reinstall VPC 2004, shut
    down all the VM's, then upgrade to VPC 2007 again. The other thing
    you can do if you don't need the saved state of the VM's, is to delete
    the <machine name>.vsv files.
