Solution for “This virtual machine’s policies are too old to be run by this version of VMware [Fusion|Workstation].”

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/13

If you ever get the error message

This virtual machine’s policies are too old to be run by this version of VMware Fusion.

or

This virtual machine’s policies are too old to be run by this version of VMware Workstation.

Then the solution is really simple:

  1. Remove any .vmpl file from your virtual machine’s directory.
  2. Remove lines from your .vmx file that start with these keys:

policy.vm.mvmtid =
policy.vm.managedVMTemplate =
policy.vm.managedVM =

Thanks Rene Larsen for answering this.
