VC fat client suppress error message editing VM version 10


I cannot stand the VC web client.  It is slow, clunky, and refreshing.  I strongly prefer using the VC fat client on my laptop but I've upgraded the virtual hardware on a bunch of VM's and now get the Restricted Edit Options error.  Is there a way to suppress this error message to keep it from popping up?  See attached.  Thank you.

assuming you are using 5.5, upgrade your vsphere client to 5.5 update 2

I've upgraded my vsphere client to to 5.5 update 2.  That is what allows me to actually edit the vm settings.  Even after installing the update, I still get the pop up message.  Once I click  ok, then the edit screen opens and I can add a disk or whatever.

Is there a way to suppress the error message so I don't keep having to click it away?
