This issue you are experiencing is a bug in the vSphere Client 5.0, which occurs when using Windows 8.0 and Windows 8.1.

This has been fixed in the latest and last version of the VMware vSphere Client 5.0 Update 3

This is the download you require from VMware

Name: VMware-viclient-all-5.0.0-1300600.exe
Release Date: 2013-10-17
Build Number: 1300600

The proper fix, is to use the correct VMware vSphere Client.

It's a bug in the VMware vSphere Client 5.x?

Did you not try downloading the new VMware vSphere Client?

Administrator,

I think we are here for bottom line only, I agreed that hanccocka assistance was great and he tried to help/assist ... but if the problem is not solved, then what should I do, because of our configuration or the guy who did it, we just can't upgrade ... period, now I'm looking for a work around.

And I got the work around too, as shared here too, how I can even accept hanccocka answer, reiterating the same, very thankful to hanccocka, but I'm sorry, can't accept that answer, because it didn't solve the problem.

Thanks and hope this clarifies.
