Error : Taking ownership of this virtual machine failed

I had to do a hard reboot of a locked up machine this morning.  That machine running my virtuals under VM Player 3.1.3.  When I attempted to run one particular virtual I receive an error stating “Taking ownership of this virtual machine failed” due to the host computer having a lock on the vmx.  The fix is to navigate to the folder where the vmx lives and delete *.lck.
