Updating VMWare VMX file doesnt work

I am updating a VMWare project vmx file setting and restarting the VM, but the setting is not being updated. I have tried every kind of reboot available to force the reboot, tried closing VmWare and reopeing, tried opening the VM directly from the vmx file all didnt work?

Any ideas?

Yes, I updated the machine.id setting in the VMX file, I have an application that uses the setting. But once I have updated the file and rebooted the machine it picks up the previous value no matter what I seem to do.

If yes, the VM needs to be power down, then you can change the uuid

On the VMX file did you make sure the file is not locked my another process but your you change it or that you have read/write access rights to the file.
