Downloaded VM unable to boot up using VMware Player
I have downloaded VM from the Senior System Architect 7.3/7.4 online course but unable to boot up using VMware player. I tried to download the VM and import to VMware player a few rounds but still unable to resolve the issue.
I faced below error message:
"The configuration file "<VM folder path>\C0916.vmx" was created by a VMware product that is incompatible with this version of VMware Player and cannot be used.
Cannot open the configuration file <VM folder path>\C0916.vmx."
I manage to make the VM works. Below are the steps and hope can help those facing the same error as below:
1. Go to the VM folder in your machine.
2. Locate file with extention *.vmx or for above example is called "C0916.vmx"
3. Open this file using notepad with administrator rights.
4. Search for field called "virtualhw.version" and change it to 8 same as "config.version"
5. Save the vmx file.
