Deploy OVF Template

I have a VM that I exported as OVF Template. So it created a single vmdk file "VMtoOVFTemp-1.vmdk"
Now if I do Deploy OVF Template so that I can create new VM from that OVF Template,  I browse to file "VMtoOVFTemp-1.vmdk" and select it, I get the error shown below:
w
Not sure why the Export has created only one file "VMDK", I believe it should create other files such as .ovf and .mf

Any Help ?

Thank you

You should have at least an OVF file as well, hence the expression Import OVF.

No OVF, you'll not be able to Import, as an OVF.

Importing and Exporting OVFs, is a disaster! (poor man's backup!)

Internet explorer for some reason opened up several times during OVF export and did not see it..it was prompting to save each file.. now I was able to export all necessary files
