VMware 6.0 client integration plugin not working

I have a lab where I'm testing View 7.1 on ESXi 6.0 U3. VMware, in their infinite wisdom, has  decided to take the very simple and easy process of deploying an OVF and now linked it to something called the Client integration plugin for your browser. I have a Windows 7 machine that I'm using for my management piece. The CIP installs just fine, but any time I've tried to make use of it in IE, the vSphere web client says it's not installed, but it is.  I've tried alternate browsers like Chrome and FF and they're really not any better.

It looks like I might be able to install the Access Point OVF from the old vSphere client, but going forward, I'd like to use the web version, but need this plugin to do certain things.

Any advice?
