    Another "VMware Workstation unrecoverable error: (vmx)"

      I was running three VMs in Workstation 7 when the host machine Windows 7 Pro 64-bit blue screened. I got that problem fixed and then went about accessing VMware. I was able to get 2 of the 3 machines up, but the third machine was totally locked. I couldn't shut it down or suspend it and couldn't restart Workstation, so I killed and restarted workstation.


      At first, I thought I could get the machine up again by taking ownership of it. That didn't work. Googled and a VMware support document recommended manually deleting the .lck files and restarting workstation. Alas, that didn't work either and I got the nastygram referenced in the subject line of this thread. I'm attaching the latest log file for this VM, but I'm holding out little hope of a recovery. Still, you never know.
