I'm running FC6 and VMware workstation 6...I left my laptop unattended and forgot to plug in the power adapter...ran out of juice so the laptop shut down. When I boot up and open vmware, it doesn't see the winxp module I loaded, but still see the directory it was installed into. I get an error message if I try to open the vmx file saying it's already in use.

Doing service vmware stop doesn't work...anyone know how to kill the process so it'll see the winxp partition again?

Thanks in advance.

Delete any *.lck files in the winxp install directory
