Sorry if this sounds cheesy because I have VMWare Player FREE 5.x. Yesterday, while VMWare Player was running XP Professional on our Windows 7 Professional computer, we had to do a hard restart on Windows 7. Since that time when I try to launch the virtual machine, I get the message that there was an error powering on. I can see that the VM is sitting in a suspended mode.
My question, is there a way to force a shutdown on that puppy. Nothing was open when it went down.
