wmware.exe - No Disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk3\DR2. I looked everywhere, including the registry, trying to find a configuration option or something that could be wrong, and nothing helped. Then I discovered a couple of entries on vmware site that helped solving it. Apparently there is something wrong with the preferences file, locate in
%APPDATA%\VMware\preferences.ini for Windows
~/.vmware/preferences for Linux
Not wanting to spend all night trying to solve it, I first deleted de preferences.ini file without looking into it much with no luck.
I deleted the directory VMWare, first I typed cd %APPDATA% in a command window to look where the directory was. In my case, running windows 7 it was located in:
then opened it in the windows explorer and deleted it, and this worked, I lost my favorites and open files history, but truth is, that is almost irrelevant. The other thing I learned, and I guess it had always worked, is that typing %APPDATA% in the start menu, went directly to the directory, I mean it replaces the variable, as it should and does in a batch file.
