Is it possible to configure the .vmx file w.r.t. settings not exposed through the GUI in VMware Workstation, when dealing with an encrypted VM? Basically what I am looking for is a function similar to about:config in Firefox.

Example: the answer to this previous question I asked, refers to a setting not exposed through the virtual machine settings dialog in VMware Workstation. Which means that in order to configure such setting the VM needs to be decrypted (i.e. disabling encryption) and then encrypted again (enabling encryption) from the settings dialog.
