This virtual machine is already in use

This virtual machine is already in use


Some times when you start you vmware virtual machine you get error that this virtual machine is already in use and you get amazed, because you are not using this machine. You did not turned on the machine and even you are getting this message.


So what’s the matter?


Generally this error occurs when you copy your virtual machine from one place to other place. For get rid of this message you just need to delete few files from your virtual machine folder and you are done with that.


Open your virtual machine folder where all files of your VMware virtual machine are there. You will get a folder like osname.vmx.lck. open this folder and delete all the .lck files of this folder. Now turn on the machine and you will not have any issue now to turn it on.
