    cannot start virtual machine from a suspended state

    aSimplePerson Lurker

      I have setup windows xp professional edition as a virtual machine and after doing some work in it I have put it in suspended state. Now when I try to restart the vm, I am getting the following error:


      Error while powering on: VMware Player cannot connect to the virtual machine. Make sure you have rights to run the program, access all directories the program uses, and access all directories for temporary files.



      Failed to connect pipe to virtual machine: All pipe instances are busy.


      As a result I can't boot into the vm.

      How do I resolve this?

      Any help would be appreciated....
