In my VMware Workstation I couldn't open the VM (Guest OS), it had a warning: The virtual machine appears to be in use, whereas the VM is not being used. there is an option to Take Ownership, but after clicking the Take Ownership button, VM still couldn't be opened.
|warning: This virtual machine appears to be in use|
|Still couldn't be opened after clicking Take Ownership button|
Delete all lck files.
After deleting lck files, my VM can be opened and running normally.
I am using VMware Workstation 14, it seems will work for other versions of VMware Workstation
