Started getting this error when trying to view OS thru the console on VMware VI installed on XP running within VMware Fusion. I installed all the Windows updates and Dot Nets v 1, 2 and 3.5. I attached a screen shot. It works fine when connecting from another machine. So it's specific this installation of OS

My guess.
Uninstall the VI Client, check DOT net is up todate via MS.
Reboot
Reinstall the VI Client.
Give it another try.
