Try restarting the VMware View Web Component service. Also, make sure you are using the HTTPS prefix.

Hi,

You can install the View Composer service on the Windows Server computer on which vCenter Server is

installed or on a separate Windows Server computer. A standalone View Composer installation works with

vCenter Server installed on a Windows Server computer and with the Linux-based vCenter Server Appliance.

The View Composer software cannot coexist on the same virtual or physical machine with any other View

Manager software component, including a replica server, security server, View Connection Server, View

Agent, View Client, or View Transfer Server.
