This virtual machine appears to be in use" - big problem

I see information 'This virtual machine appears to be in use' but isn't in use.

First my computer with MacOS crach down and have to restart them. Since then I see information like upper. I can't do nothing.

In Finder view the package contents for the guest, and if there are any lck directories present delete them.

The VMware file is actually a directory.

If you right click on it and show package contents from the context menu you will be able to see the various files in the directory.

OS X applications are the same, if you right click on Mail.app for example, you can show package contents.

You should also use the Applications->Utilities->Activity Monitor app to make sure there isn't a process still running.

If there are no Virtual Machines running you should not see any vmware-vmx processes. If you do you will need to kill the process and then try to restart the VM.
