.xml makes me think about IE.  
Try clearing your IE cache and temp files.  Also, try adding your VC and hosts to your trusted sites.

Not sure, just my "from the hip" thoughts.

Take a look at http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1011329. But I would go ahead and download and install the client 4.1 instead of 4.0 U1

Good Luck

this is a know issue in windows 7 and windows 2008 . Either install VSphere Client Update 1
or you can try the following steps

Download the file system.dll. This file is typically located in  %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ directory of a non-Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 machine with .NET v3.5 SP1 installed.
Copy the file to C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\lib.

Note: If the lib directory does not exist, create it.
 
Open VpxClient.exe.config in a text editor. The file is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher.
Add the following three lines to VpxClient.exe.config, just before </configuration>:

<runtime>
<developmentMode developerInstallation="true"/>
</runtime>
 
From Windows 2008 R2 or Windows 7 System Properties, click the Advanced tab > Environment Variables.
Create a new System variable called DEVPATH and assign the value:

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\Lib
