Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise notebook. I connect to several varieties of ESXi and so over a period of time have the attached installed on my notebook. yesterday I tried accessing my first ESXi 5.1 server and of cours it asked me to update my VMWare client, you can see it it the jpeg.
Now I cannot access my ESXi 3.5 servers. I get the attached errors that do not close out.
I think I had the same issue when I added the ESXi 5.0 client some time ago and I fixed it by uninstalling all clients in reverse order, cleaning the registry of vmware and installing again oldest to newest. Would that work again?
I just re-read hanccoka's article:
HOW TO: Connect to the VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1
(ESXi 5.1) using the vSphere Client. I did not find anything about causing issues with older clients. vmware-clients.jpg jsom-vsphere-error-3-4.jpg
