I think the file you need to reference is called

coop0705091.vmx

Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
the path you need to use should be something like

vmrun start "C:\<users>\<documents>\VM\coop0705091\coop0705091.vmx"

it's the location of the VMX file in the VM folder.
