Virtual machine powered off, how to fix?

Jump to solution

Error message says--cannot open the disk '/Users/ myname/documents/virtual machines.localized/windows vista.vmware/windows vista-000001/vmdk or one of the snapshots it depends on. Reason: failed to lock the file. There was a snapshot but now there isn't and I cannot seem to open the machine as guest or any other configuration. What is solution to this? Thanks

Did you try rebooting your Mac? (yes, I know it sounds like IT Crown "Did you try turning it off and on?", but it is really one of first things to try when you have problems).
