Correct VSphere Client for Windows 10?

Jump to solution

Hi. I'm trying to install the VSphere Client on my new Windows 10 computer so I can connect to my ESXi server.

vsphereclient.vmware.com/vsphereclient/5/1/1/2/5/0/8/VMware-viclient-all-6.0.0-5112508.exe

I downloaded the above which I believe is the 6.0 client update 3.

When I finish the install on Windows 10 and load up the client as soon as I enter the IP of my ESXi server I'm prompted to download and install additional support files, which I do.

Then, I run the client again and get a message that VM VSphere Client ***4.1*** is preparing the setup files. It ends with a message that says "4.1 - The Product can only be installed on Windows XP SP2 and later."

I may have accidentally attempted to install an earlier version of the client here which has munged things up.

How can I get the 6.1 VSphere client going?

Thank you for any help. - Mike Gallery

You must be using the 4.1 client to connect to an ESXi 4.1 host. You may also face issues getting such an old client to run on Windows 10 as I know others have reported problems.

To what version of ESXi are you attempting to connect?

I'm trying to connect to ESXi 4.1.0.

I can do it from my Windows 7 workstation using the 4.1 client.

Is that the problem? The newer client can't connect to an older ESXi?

Thank you.
