This virtual machine appears to be in use. - Take Ownership fix

If after a power failure, or reboot of you machine, you encounter the "This virtual machine appears to be in use." message when attempting to connect to your VM's, follow the steps below to remove the message:
  1. Shutdown VMware.
  2. Locate the folder where your VM is stored.
  3. Locate one or more .lck or .lock files and delete them. If you are uncomfortable deleting these files, back them up in a separate folder.
  4. Restart VMware and run your VM.
The message should not appear.
