Hi,

thanks for your effort, but the link points to source code only. No compiled exe installer for Windows is available.

Thanks a lot.

Official search engine for downloads is very bad - always redirect to v 6

Not to hi-jack the post but I couldn't message you. I'm too new of a user. Could you message that link by chance sarrazola ?

Why do you need to download an old version?

vSphere versions earlier than 6.5 are no longer supported or updated - if this is anything like a production workload you should be upgrading your platform if possible.
