How do I run the .VMX virtual appliance as I am using an older VMware Workstation / VMware Player version?

The .VMX virtual appliance (32b/64b) is set to run on the latest VMware Workstation version (v11.x.x) and on the latest VMware Player version (v7.x.x). In order to run these virtual appliances on older VMware Workstation / VMware Player versions, please take the following actions:

1. Extract the .zip archive
2. Go to the extract location
3. Click to edit the .VMX file using a text editor
4. Search for the "virtualHW.version" field
5. Replace the default version (default = 11) to the desired version
    Examples:
    - if you want to run the .VMX on VMware Workstation v9.x.x or VMware Player v5.x.x, then set virtualHW.version = "9"
    - if you want to run the .VMX on VMware Workstation v10.x.x or VMware Player v6.x.x, then set virtualHW.version = "10"

6. Save the changes and close the text editor
7. Import the virtual image
8. Play the virtual machine
