VMware player can’t open OVF file

When you get an OVF format VM image, you can’t open it with Vmware player directly. lucky there is a way to conver ovf VM image to VMX format.

Download the OVFTool from Vmware.

then run the ovftool to convert the image. here is the syntax

Ovftool c:\vm\myvm.ovf  c:\vm\vmxvm
