VMWare Workstation How do I delete .vmem file

While shutting down my windows 10 computer I had a prompt to "Force VMWare Shutdown"

( i forgot to shutdown vm)

So I clicked yes.

Now on restart I cannot open any VM's. I deleted all .lck files.

But cannot delete the .vmem file.

It appears to be lock in.

Help?

Not sure if this will help, but when I have to recover from an adventure that requires deleting the .lck files, I also have to sometimes use Ctrl-Alt-Delete to get to the Task Manager on the Host and shut down all the VMWare processes, then reboot the host. I am then able to open my VM...
