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?

No. Also remember, that you will not be able to add any virtual machine 9 or 10 features.

You have been granted a reprieve because 5.5 was going to be the last release of the vSphere Client for 6.0, bit VMware did not have the heart to retire it yet!

I'm afraid you will need to get used to the vSphere Web Client, because it's not going away, and ALL the new features are being developed for the Web Client, which are unavailable in the vSphere Client e.g. Replication, VDP, Big Data Extensions, vCops, Orchestrator....

Just a tip, why are you using virtual machine v10 VMs, if you do not use the features, we use virtual machine 8.0, unless we need virtual machine 10 features.
