This probably occurs on small percentage of users' systems who change their system locale from English to another language, then back. To fix this:
- Change your system locale to match that listed in the vmx/vmsd file of your VM.
- Remove the Unknown (Invalid) VM from Inventory.
- Open the vmx and/or vmsd file(s) with notepad or other text editor and delete the line that contains ".encoding = "[systemlocale]""
- Then re-add it to Inventory.
The selected virtual machine is not recognized on this system. The cause of this problem may be that the virtual machine's .vmx file is corrupted, or that the virtual machine version is newer than is recognized by the host. You can remove the virtual machine from the inventory if you believe that it is not recoverable.
