Public bug reported:

If I put a launcher on the desktop with the command
"vmplayer vmware/CsProject/Windows\ XP\ Professional.vmx" it works as it should but if I make a copy of that item and puts it in a Gnome Drawer applet it doesn't work from there. 

A hotfix is to alter the file to not contain spaces so it can be started with
"vmplayer vmware/CsProject/WindowsXPProfessional.vmx". Then it works from the drawer applet.

Im running edgy.
