Convert vmx data from version 4 to version 3.1.5
I have created a linux vmware guest system in a vmplayer 4 and want to
play this vmware guest in a vmware player 3.1.5
Since i can’t upgrade my pc from vmware player 3.1.5 to version 4,
i have to modify the vmx config data.
While playing the vmware guest in vmplayer 3.1.5 , i got this error message
“Invalid configuration file. File “D:\virtualmachines\Opensuse12.1-1\Opensuse12.1.vmx” was created by a VMware product with more features than this version of VMware Player and cannot be used with this version of VMware Player.
Cannot open configuration file D:\virtualmachines\Opensuse12.1-1\Opensuse12.1.vmx.”
Edit the xxx.vmx file
Change line: virtualHW.version = “8″
to : virtualHW.version = “7″
After this Modification , the guest is running in player 3.1.5
