Manipulate files in a snapshot vmdk

Sep 20, 2010 at 2:40 PM

Hey,

when I manipulate files in a vmdk which is a snapshot, VMWare Workstation always complains that it was manipulated and refuses to boot.

What I do is, open the VirtualDisk in ReadWrite, get me the FS Object, open the file and changing it. This all done with using directives.
Done.

Any ideas how to prevent VMWare to complain? ... Which file do I need to open ... the latest snapshot file or the base vmdk or what?

Ciao
