Hi, DrWhols

Right click the VM that you want to remove, then click "Remove".

once you removed your VM from the library, then it should also disappeared from "inventory.xmls" under directory "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\VMware". Please double check whether it exist there or not.

I can not reproduce your issue.

i only see this file

inventory.vmls

and it contains the entries

not sure about editing though since all is numbered...

this really should not be an issue at all.....

Hi, DrWhols

you could edit this file directly to delete the related items about the VM you want to remove.

Please let me know the WS version that you are using and please check the folder access permission. I am using WS10.0, no this issue found.
