It does not matter what the Operating System is, VMware discontinued support for the legacy vSphere Client based on C#. ,many years ago.

What is supported is the Web Client (which may or may not use flash depending upon the version of vCenter Server).

The old vSphere Client does still work on Windows 10 though! but it really is time to start getting use to the Web Client, either Flex or HTML5 because that is the future in 6.5 and 6.7, where the vSphere Client NO LONGER WORKS! so you've got no choice but to use Web Client!

Andrew,
I guess the web client has limited features on VMware version 6. We are not upgrading the version 6 to 6.7 for another few months.
