using Sphere client to connect to multiple servers

I am looking for a little guidance. I have several clients that I work with and I need to connect my computer to their Servers. However, most are using a variety of versions of VMware (EX: ESXi 4.0, ESX 5.X, ESXi 6, ESX6.). I do very little in vmware except connect to multiple computers and make the occasional snapshot. Anyone have any ideas of the best way to do this. I am currently uninstalling and installing whatever version of vSphere client I need to use.

Thanks for your help.

We have ALL the vSphere Clients installed on our laptops, because we manage many thousands of sites, it's not an issue.

They all co-exist together. (also VI3 also co-exists, but this is a different app for 2.5 and 3.x/3.5)

When you first execute and start the vSphere Client, and it starts to connect to the ESXi server or vCenter Server, it automatically detects which version, and loads those libraries.

So just install 4.x, 4.1, 5.0, 5.1, 5.5 and 6.0.

(There is no ESX 5 or ESX 6, it's all "i").
