1. It's installed once per Virtual Machine, and on EVERY Virtual Machine, and should also be upgraded, when you update ESXi hosts, when updated or upgraded!

2. I've written two EE Articles here:- (applicable to ALL versions of ESXi, including ESXi 5.5)

It has nothing todo with the vSphere Client!
