.vmsn File Extension

Developer: VMware
File type: VMware Snapshot State File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .vmsn. Files with the file extension .vmsn can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .vmsn files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .vmsn file?

The .vmsn file extension is used by the VMware virtualization software as VMware Snapshot State File. This application is popularly used to save information regarding the virtual machine to be used for snapshots or the saved and frozen state of the VM. All these snapshots help in installing guest operating systems since the VMware virtualization software is known as an application that creates virtual computer machines using a single computer. The virtual machines that are created using the software can either be MAC, Linux, Windows and other operating systems. The virtual machines created by this software are not just another application to be accessed; rather, it is a complete computer that has its own memory, network connections, processors, etc. This .vmsn file extension is a bit like the .vmsd extension. The only difference is that while .vmsn deals with the virtual machine’s running state, .vmsd simply contains the snapshot’s metadata.

how to open a .vmsn file?

Launch a .vmsn file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .vmsn file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .vmsn files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .vmsn file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .vmsn file will open the correct application.

VMware Workstation 8

VMware Workstation 8

VMware Workstation 8 is a personal virtualization program used in building and sharing virtual machines in vSpheres. It was pioneered by VMware, Inc. and was released in 2011 where most of its consumers are engineers. Its main features include Remote Connections that provides continuous establishment of remote connection to hosts that are running in VMware vSphere, Workstation and VMware vCenter. Its Share feature allows users to share VMs so that teammates can get access to it and for faster testing of applications in a more production-like setting. Aside from that Workstation 8 added an Upload to vSphere option that assists users in dragging and dropping a VM from a desktop to vSphere. New User Interface was enhanced with live thumbnails, simplified menu, new virtual machine library with revamped searching capabilities and improved preferences screens. It now supports HD audio with 7.1 surround sound.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .vmsn files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .vmsn. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
