6. If you cannot browse through vmware to choose your virtual machine, and you are getting a "VFS error invalid parameters", then do this to fix it.
Open a terminal and su to become root then enter these commands:
cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0
mv libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0.old
ln -sf /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0
cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
