SCVMM P2V fails with VSS writer error

I've P2V'd many servers now with SCVMM without any problems.

I've got to one of our last servers and when I try to start the P2V job I get:

The snapshot creation failed because VSS writer {e8132975-6f93-4464-a53e-1050253ae220} on source machine machinename did not respond within the expected time interval.

I found many article which included re-registering DLLs, deleting registry keys and restarting services and it was only a combination of all of these that seemed to work.

Here is what I did for those that want to try:

I followed

Then I did:

net stop cryptsvc

net start cryptsvc

Hope this helps someone out there.
