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 fiule to your existing file.)
