MokaFive Creator (1) can play local vmdk-files

MokaFive Creator has several menu items to open local vmdk-files, and you can play and edit VMware-vdmk-images with MokaFive Creator by importing VMware vmx-files. So the MokaFive Creator seems to be a really portable VMware Player!

Does not run on a DropBox-subfolder on Vista 64bit, cannot play local vmdk-files
My hope was, that mokafive is a portable VMware-player, which runs on Vista 64bit or Windows 7 64 bit and Windows XP 32bit on any local subdirectory, synchronized with dropbox, which should open local vmx- or vmdk-files. My hope was, that I can copy or DropBox-synchronize this portable VMware-player to any subfolder without installation, without administrator rights.
I have been disappointed by the MokaFive-Player in following points:
(a)
The moka5-player starts only from the root folder of an USB-memory-stick, not from a local dropbox-sychronized subfolder.
(b)
MokaFive has no menu item to open local vmdk-files, you can play only VM-images from the server public.mokafive.net
(c)
Errormessage on Vista 64-bit:
"You are using a version of VMware which is not compatible with this version of MokaFive Player on 64-bit operating systems."
(d)
The download of the free Linux image Fearless Browser v2 (349MB) on Vista 64bit took 5 hours with a good internet connection speed 2117 kbit/s tested with http://speedtest.net.

It seems, that the hope to get a really portable VM-player running from a DropBox-subfolder can be realized easier with the portable VirtualBox (1, 2) or QEMU (3, 4) with the portable QEMU Manager (5).
