Copying a suspended VM

I have 2 VMs (Ubuntu and Windows) running on my desktop with VMWare Workstation. I regularly suspend them to preserve the OS state.

Is it possible to copy these VMs to another machine with VMWare Workstation or Player, and run them without errors?

I don't think that this will work.

You can certainly copy them to another host, but resuming a VM requires an identical environment, so you will most likely need to reset the VMs to power them on.
