I believe, once you install ESXi/VC first time, if you do not apply paid license, it gets free evaluation license automatically.

When you install you get 60 days license,

But when the license expires you can ask for the license in this link:

Download VMware vSphere Hypervisor for Free

but when I ask licensed this link only gives me 5.5, but in my vmware install because it does not support 5.0

Welcome to the Community,

first of all: Please remove the picture or at least gray out the license key!

Can you confirm that this is an ESXi 5.x host license key and there's no typo in it?

That's the wrong license. What you need is an ESXi host license. Please follow the link provided by to register for the free ESXi Hypervisor.
