unfortunately I accidentally closed the VM without turning off the OS (Windows 10) on an Ubuntu machine. Does anyone have any idea how I can solve the problem? I always get Unable to change virtual machine power state: Failed to power on '/home/odd/myname/vmware/Windwos 10 x64/Windows 10 x64.vmx'.

Thread reported to notify moderators it should be moved, there are areas for Workstation Pro and Player.
It's not easy to help without any further detail.
However, what you may want to check is whether the VM's folder contains any .lck files, or folders that may prevent the VM from being powered on.
Always remember to have a current backup before modifying things!

I got it! The problem was the VM runned in the background but the VMware interface doesnt showed it!
For other guys with the same problem:
1. go into the terminal
2. STOP it smoothly! --> vmrun stop yourpath/yourvm.vmx
