"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

I read on a German forum that one has to use the datastore-name that vmware uses instead of the real path.

Something like ... stop "[standard] VMWARE/VMWARE.vmx"

That datastore-name can be found in "Configure VM" in the webinterface
