How to open file with VMX extension?

VMX file description

A .VMX file is a configuration settings file that is used by the VMware software programs, such as VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion. Further, the VMX settings file stores the information collected while a new virtual machine is created from the New Virtual Machine Wizard or the Configuration Wizard. The VMX file is saved on the Windows host in the folder or directory as specified in the wizard. The VMX file is saved in a plain-text format containing a list of properties saved as Property = Value pair. The earlier version of the Linux OS created the virtual machine configuration file, and saved the file with a CFG extension.
