I was working on a specialized project that included the use of vmrun (part of VMware VIX).
This project required the ability to restore a VM to a baseline Snapshot.
The challenge is that the user is not a tech person, and the requirement was that it was very easy to restore the baseline Snapshot using a simple batch file.
So I ran vmrun (located in C:Program FilesVMwareVMware VIX) to see the necessary syntax to revert to a Snapshot.
The syntax is:
vmrun -T ws revertToSnapShot “C:pathvmnamevmname.vmx” SnapShotName
The error I received “was: The specified version was not found”
After some looking around, it appeared that one of two things happened:
- The updated VMware VIX package was not updated from my 7.0.1 installation of VMware Workstation
- The updated VMware VIX package was not included in the 7.1.0 installation of VMware Workstation.
I kind of think that the first is true. I say this, because when VMware Workstation is initially installed, a VMware VIX installer presents itself to augment the installation.
I went to VMware’s site to download the latest version of VMware VIX.
After installing the updated VMware VIX build, my problems were solved.
