Before beginning to start the process to recreate the VMX file, if it exists, remove the VM from the VMware Infrastructure Clients inventory list (right click on the VM and select ‘Remove from Inventory’).
Also if you are trying to replace a corrupted VMX file then rename (preferable option) or delete the offending VMX file.
This is the EA that was uploaded a few months back.
(unless you are doing exactly the same thing, use different values as /dev/disk0 is usually your boot drive. ) Create a logical volume group: diskutil cs create lvg0 /dev/drive0 /dev/drive1 Copy the resulting UUID - you'll need it in the next step.
This problem began a few months ago and it this point it is becoming annoying.
I run Windows 7 Ultimate in a virtual machine (VMware Fusion) on an i Mac (Retina 5K 2014).
Make sure the name you type in here matches the name of the directory on your VMFS partition that hosts the VM with the missing/corrupt VMX file.
If you enter in a different name here the New Virtual Machine Wizard will create a directory of that name that will contain the VMX file (along with a couple of other files important to the running of the VM) whilst your disk (VMDK) file(s) could be located in another directory.
