Last Modified: 2013-11-23

Hi All

I have an ongoing issue with VMware player.  I have a number of VM's created in Virtual PC 2007, along with .vmc files.

I want to import these virtual machines into VMWare player using the "open a virtual machine" option and browsing in the .vmc files.

Each time I do this I get the following message:-

"vmware player failed to open virtual machine failed to query source for information"

VMWare player is installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player

The VHDS are located in C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VPCS

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit editon if this helps.

Any ideas as its urgent?
