Sometimes it happens that a Virtual Machine gets unreachable and a good old forced shutdown is in order.
First let’s find out which process is stuck by opening the Task Manager:
Search for the Process “vmwp.exe” (Virtual Machine Worker Process). As you’re probably running multiple VM’s, lets find out which is which.
Add the column “command line” to the Task Manager:
In the command line column you’ll find the command: “C:\Windows\System32\vmwp.exe” <guid>
Now let’s open up PowerShell and find out which VM is which. Run the command:
Get-VM | fl VMName,Id
Now end the task through Task Manager and boot it up again and find out what went wrong.
