    Unable to start virtual machine by using command line

    martyouel Novice

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to start my virtual machine by using command line and I always get that error :

      "Command failed : You do not have access rights to this file"

       

      I'm admin of computer...

       

      Here's the command that I run :

      "C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmrun.exe" start "C:\Documents and Settings\mouellette\My Documents\My Virtual Machines\DYNACOM-VMBUILD-V10\Windows XP Professional.vmx"

       

      I'm using Vmware workstation 6. I'm able to start one other virtual machine by command line, but the one I really need wont start. This virtual machine start great when I dbl-click on .vmx file.

       

      What's wrong?

       

      Here's my .vmx file :

      config.version = "8"

      virtualHW.version = "6"

      scsi0.present = "TRUE"

      memsize = "1000"

      ide0:0.present = "TRUE"

      ide0:0.fileName = "dynacom-vmbuild-000005.vmdk"

      sound.present = "TRUE"

      sound.virtualDev = "es1371"

      sound.fileName = "-1"

      sound.autodetect = "TRUE"

      displayName = "DYNACOM-VMBUILD"

      guestOS = "winxppro"

      nvram = "Windows XP Professional.nvram"

      ide1:0.startConnected = "TRUE"

      ide1:0.autodetect = "TRUE"

      tools.syncTime = "FALSE"

       

      ethernet0.address = 00:50:56:3A:60:30

       

      checkpoint.vmState.readOnly = "FALSE"

      checkpoint.vmState = ""

       

      ethernet0.connectionType = "bridged"

       

      extendedConfigFile = "Windows XP Professional.vmxf"

       

      virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted"

      tools.upgrade.policy = "manual"

       

      isolation.tools.hgfs.disable = "TRUE"

       

      uuid.action = "create"

       

      uuid.location = "56 4d 46 da 38 e7 1c 73-1a 44 1a 26 99 c8 5b 53"

      uuid.bios = "56 4d 46 da 38 e7 1c 73-1a 44 1a 26 99 c8 5b 53"

       

      ethernet0.addressType = "generated"

      ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:c8:5b:53"

       

      ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"

       

      pciBridge0.present = "TRUE"

      ehci.present = "TRUE"

      svga.autodetect = "TRUE"

       

       

      thanks in advance for you help.
