I have used EasyVMX in the past.

If you have a vmx file then you can just copy it and edit it in notepad or similar - some of the options are obvious but others need a bit of work to find out what is allowable.

(So if you accept the default name for the hard disk, it is easy to change the name of the disk file to your existing file.)

i do not have a vmx file – iceman Jan 13 '10 at 11:15
Then create a new virtual machine, copy the vmx file from that (and optionally clean up by deleting the new machine). – Hennes Jul 1 at 9:48
