If this virtual machine is not in use, press the "Take Ownership" button to obtain ownership of it. Otherwise, press the "Cancel" button to avoid damaging it.

Configuration file: D:\Windows 7 Pro x64 Rockwell 32\Windows 7 Pro x64 Base.vmx.

With the Workstation UI closed, browse to that VM's folder.  Make sure to delete any *.lck files and folders.  Then try again to open it in Workstation and power it on.
