If you have Windows VM, add VMDK of linux VM to a windows VM and take the image of it

Virtual Machine itself is portable application containing set of files such as VMX, VMDK, NVRAM and VMEM file.
As long as you have all these files you are safe.
If you are looking to backup your Virtual Machine, then just copy the VMX and the VMDK file from Source to Destination (USB Drive, NAS, etc)
