Fix of this problem

[Tested 90%]

1- If you do not need that virtual machine you can delete it and setup a new one.
2- If you need that virtual machine you can erase the suspended state and return to you virtual machine as if you did not suspend it, to do so follow these steps:
- Go to the folder contains the virtual machine..
- Search for the the file with extension .vmem and have the name as same as the name of the     virtual machine. 
- Delete the .vmem file and the go the VMware workstation and run you virtual machine from it.
- And error message will appear just press OK.
- When you asked about you virtual machine select I copied it.
- You will be asked whether to take the ownership for this virtual machine or not, and you have to    take the ownership.
- When you are asked whether to discard the suspend state or not, you have to discard it.

if your problem not fixed , you can leave comment for us and we will take care of that .

  2. What why it didn't work I couldn't find a .vmem file that had the same
    name as my guest virtual OS so I deleted the only .vmem file that there
    was but when I tried to run my machine OS again it showed the same error
    message and I realized that it recreated the .vmem file!

    1. I solved not deleting, but renaming all the files except the vmx and vmk. Added ".old" to the extension. Ran the .vmx and all working.
