Cannot Edit Virtual Machine Settings

I'm using vSphere client version 6.0.0 and the ESXi version is 6.5.0. I created my first guest in this but I cannot edit the virtual machine settings. It comes with error You cannot use the vSphere Client to edit the settings of virtual machines of version 12 or higher. Use the vSphere Web Client to edit the settings of this virtual machine.

Thanks for that. Now I get a new error message using my browsers Chrome and Mozilla.

Unfortunately, we hit an error that we weren't expecting.
The client may continue working, but at this point, we recommend refreshing your browser and submitting a bug report.
