Not a valid virtual machine configuration file

When opening up an virtual machine, the "not a valid virtual machine configuration file" error message pop up. I understand there is tool to generate the vmx file from the log file. Just wonder if someone can give me a hand to generate the file for me?

Attached please find the log files in zip. VMware workstation version 8.

Many thanks!

The attached "WS8_Win7.vmx.zip" file contains a new "WS8_Win7.vmx" file created from the supplied vmware.log file.

With VMware Workstation (or the target VM's tab) closed, unzip (double-click) the downloaded attached "WS8_Win7.vmx.zip" file and replace the original "WS8_Win7.vmx" file with the one here.

Note that the virtual hard drive is configured as 'scsi0:0.fileName = "WS8_Win7-000002.vmdk"' and if that is not the Snapshot Disk you want to be running from then modify the option appropriately.
