Unable to start Vertica VM

We are trying to start a Vertica community Edition vmx file using VM-Ware player and getting this below error. Any clue to fix this OR bypass this error?

    Looks like the problem occurs if a virtual machine that is meant for VMware Hosted products such as VMware Workstation, VMware Player or VMware Fusion is powered-on on an ESX/ESXi host. The underlying format used to store virtual machines on VMware Hosted products differs from the format used to store virtual machines on ESX/ESXi hosts.
    To import a virtual machine stored on a VMware Hosted product to an ESX/ESXi host, the virtual machine should first be converted using VMware vCenter Converter.
