This only works the other way around.

ESXi snapshots using the older version with delta.vmdks can be used in Workstation.

But dont use that for more as to extract data from them.

ESXi snapshots using the sesparse format do not work in Workstation.

Using Workstation snapshots in ESXi can be acchieved with very ugly workarounds only.

Onlyvery skilled VMware users should even consider trying that ....

In other words : forgot it
