problem with loging in to VMware fusion version 2.0

Dear,
I run a VMware Fusion on my Mac pro to acces my Windows XP OS. Due to some problems on my mac, the vm ware could not close properly. When starting up or resuming the guest, I got an error code that the system could not find a specific file ( see file in annex). I solved that problem to overwrite the filename with the requested filename. I did this a few times, but now I am totally lost.
In annex the error code and the generated service file.
Thanks for your help.
With kind regards,
Wim error message vmware-vmfusion.log

hmmm; it looks like you may have had a problem with the snapshot on this VM when it crashed.

Can you please detail the exact sequence of events?  Did you back up the files before renaming them?  Did you record the names before and after the manual filename edits?  You will need this information before proceeding.

Can you list everything in that directory; with file sizes and dates?  I can then see exactly what files you have there and try to ascertain what has happened.

The disk is noit full?

Check if the snapshot 000003.vmdk exists?

it may be possible to alter the VMX file to drop the snapshot file, but in doing so, it's possible that data will be lost.

Have you tried Taking a new Snapshot?

The problem is that I can browse for the file, I can overwrite it, but I cannot copy it in the same procedure. I tried to fiind it in another way, but i didn't succeed.

I did not backup.
What do you mean by "did you record the names"?
Can you specify which directory you want me to send?
