I screwed up big time when I tried deleting my Windows 7 VM on VMWare Fusion 7 on my Macbook Air. I put the VM in the Trash and emptied the trash. Now when I try to create a new VM, I get File Not Found. I tried moving VMWare Fusion into the Trash so I can uninstall it and then reinstall it but it's not working. How do I fix my problem so I can install a more recent Windows VM? Thank you.

  • What did you delete - only the VM image (the one inside the Windows VM package) or the entire Windows VM package ?? – Rene Larsen Mar 21 '15 at 20:30
  • The entire Windows VM package. – brown1001 Mar 21 '15 at 20:31

Just After installing the new VM you'll get the error "File not found".

  1. Click OK.
  2. Right-click on the VMware Fusion icon opened in the Dock.
  3. Select "Virtual Machine Library".
  4. Delete any left-overs from there.
  • What a ridiculous place the put the menu item and not in the main app from the top bar. – digout Sep 4 '18 at 8:35
