Hi,
It seems you downloaded an incomplete archive...please try your download again, and then extract the complete archive.

Once extracted you then need to boot the virtual machine's vmx file with either vmware server or player.

good luck!

Thanks for the reply.
I've did downloaded two times using this seed
http://torrent.vmware.com/torrents/VubuntuS.tar.bz2.torrent
but the still not having vmx file. File download was "Vubuntu.tar.bz2" and size is (1,019,319,740 bytes). I use winrar extract from "Vubuntu.tar.bz2" to "Vubuntu.tar", and then use winace to extract the tar file. Am I doing wrong?
