What is a VMX file?

Configuration file used by VMware virtualization software such as VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion; stores settings for a virtual machine created with the New Virtual Machine Wizard; includes the memory, hard disk, and processor limit settings; enables a virtual machine to be started in the software.

More Information

VMX files are saved in a plain text format and contain a list of settings in the form of property = value. For example, the setting for the memory limit may be memsize = "512", which means that 512MB of RAM is the maximum memory allowed for the virtual machine.

VMX files saved for VMware Fusion are generally stored within a .VMWAREVM package.

NOTE: If the virtual machine was created with an earlier Linux version of VMware Workstation, the configuration file may use the .CFG extension.
