I would cleanly shutdown the machine then reboot again.  Then try to open vmware.  If that fails then you can copy that vmare instance out of the virtual machines folder.  Then move it somewhere safe.  Then delete that virtual machine from vmware.  Then create a new vm and use the custom settings.  Fill in info as it applies then when you get to choose disk use the previously created disk and it will ask you to use some existing key or to create a new one.  Create a new one then you should be golden.
