unable to run ovf file

New Contributor

I was trying to install the Quickstart. When I clicked on the ovf file, it popped up asking me to choose an app to open this file. Isn't it supposed to run the app? When I installed it in a school terminal, it didn't ask me to choose an app to open the file, but when I installed it onto another terminal, I have this issue.

I randomly selected Notepad. Since then, when I subsequently downloaded the Quickstart, and when I clicked on the ovf files, they automatically opened up in Notepad.

Please help. Thank you.

Hi @Regina

 

First, you need to install vmware.

Second, over file.ovf right click and click on "open wit..." and select vmware.
