VmWare Player and remote file system 2GB limit

If you get the following error

"VMware Player cannot open one of the virtual disks needed by this VM because it is larger than the maximum file size supported by the host file system. Some remote file systems do not support files larger than 2 GB, even though the file system on the server might.
Cannot open the disk ".....vmdk" or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.
Reason: The file is too large."

Then simply edit the vmx file for the machine in a text editor and add this line:

diskLib.sparseMaxFileSizeCheck= "FALSE"
