Hi all,

Im trying to install the update manager 5.1 plugin on my vCenter server. Though I keep getting the message "The plugin installer for this plugin is already running"

I've tried closing the message, closing my vSphere client and trying to find any open processes relating to it, I've even tried to uninstall vSphere client though its says that "another program is being installed. Please wait until that installation is complete."

Hi Shahnawaz,

Thanks for the information, looks good, though my problem seems to have been resolved. I completely rebooted my laptop and rena the plugin installer again and that seemed to have solved it.
