VMWare Player issue

I have Squeeze ,kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64 on which I installed VMWare Player 5. I intended to run Fedora as guest OS. After the power on the following message appeared 'Could not get snapshot information Module Snapshot power on failed' I searched in VMWare knowledge base but couldn't find a solution. What could cause this failure?
best regards,

Did you copy this VM from somewhere else, or from another VMware product? Check and see if there are .lck files stored with the VM.
