thanks, I already tried that but no luck...
I solved it by disabling IPv6 and deleting secondairy IP adres on my NIC.
Did you ever resolve this and how? I tried disabling IPv6 and we do not have a secondary IP address. Also IPv4 is installed properly.
For me this had nothing to do with disabling IPV6 or IPV4 stack. I installed Windows Install Cleanup tool and removed everything 'VMWare' i also deleted any VMWare keys manually from the registry ran the install as local administrator and the install completed succesfully.
Can I ask why you are installing an old vCenter onto an old OS?
