You don't deploy in vCenter as such.

You install on your development workstation, write your code, and deploy to an OS of your choice.

vCenter Server will listen to the APIs/SDK already.


Overview

The VMware vSphere Management SDK is a bundle that contains a set of VMware vSphere SDKs (vSphere Web Services SDK, vSphere Storage Management SDK, vSphere ESX Agent Manager SDK, SSO Client SDK and vSphere Storage Policy SDK).The vSphere Software Development Kits provide all the documentation, libraries, and code examples needed for developers to rapidly build solutions integrated with the industry's leading virtualization platform.

What could you do in 5.5, you cannot do now in 6.7 ?

so you have an application written for 5.5, which does not work in 6.7 ?

Your application needs to be re-written using the new functions contained in the newer SDK.

SDK - Software Development Kit is used to create applications using the new functions contained within.

Did you write the application originally ?

Do you have the source code ?
