Easy and Fast offline VMware VMDK to Hyper-V VHDX conversion

I have just converted VMware VMDK file to Hyper-V VHD in very easy and fast manner. I posted about QEMU-Img for Windows port and finally tried it. There is Infoblox IPAM Express free system for IP Address Management (actually deserves another huge post about) that I want to try. It distributes in VMware VMDK format. Since I am Hyper-V man I need to convert this image to Hyper-V format. I don't want to install any programs and check any prerequisites. I have simple task and want to achieve it simple as well.

I run following command and I have my image converted:
qemu-img.exe convert InfobloxIPAMExpress.vmdk -O vhdx -o subformat=dynamic InfobloxIPAMExpress.vhdx

Very fast and simple.
