Installing VMWare and vertica

Hi , I am rnew to Vertica ( and to open system in general). I am from a Database background in mainframe. Now trying to start learning by installing the community edition on my widows 7 machine 64 bit. I downloaded Vertica 7.0.0 x64 for VMware. It gave 2 files   Vertica 7.0.0 x64 for VMware.vmdk  and Vertica 7.0.0 x64 for VMware.vmx.   Both these files dont open when I double click.

Are the above be elementary actually vertica software files or , are they related to the VM software? Do I need to install VMware separately for my windows 7 ?  

thanks in advance for your help.
