You can open an existing virtual machine from its package file.


In the Finder, browse to the Virtual Machines folder (usually in your user/Documents folder) and find the package or configuration file for the virtual machine.

Virtual machine package files have the extension .vmwarevm. Virtual machine configuration files have the extension .vmx.


(Optional) You can view a file's extension by selecting File > Get info.


Double-click the virtual machine package or configuration file to open the virtual machine in VMware Fusion.

If VMware Fusion is not running, it starts automatically.
