    How to uninstall Windows 8 in VMware Workstation 8?


    Hello,

    I wan to know how to uninstall or remove Windows 8 ( windows 8.vmk file) in VMware Workstation 8, does I just need to delete the file located in C:\Users\my user name\Documents\Virtual Machines\Windows 8 (see picture below)

    Click image for larger version

    or does it have its own way to remove or uninstall it?

    I do know how to install it but not to uninstall it, I hope somebody could help me
    Thank you

    That works but it will complain about missing files, that's why you need to remove them from within Player.

    Right-click on machine:

    You can do what you intended afterwards, if some left-over files remained.
