Yeah, just start your VM with a live CD, that should give you access to your files, no? You could also mount the drive in another VM.

Thanks for the reply!
I actually just hacked it, so doom off for this job.
Had to VI ninja the heck out of one of the vdmk files, where I finally found and killed the call to my program in rc.local. It caused some other issues, but at least I got far enough to extract all my code. Yay!

Yeah, no problem. Just out of curiosity, why are you coding in a VM? Well, I guess it doesn't matter. There was never anything to worry about.

All I have is a windows box, but I needed to code in a custom CentOS installation for this client. And yeah...bad idea to not do the coding directly in vim on windows and save it on my system, then copy+paste into vm. I just got lazy, I guess. Didn't think I'd get locked out of my virtual server.

And btw, I was worried. Deadline was midnight.
