ESX 3.5 Foundation from Starter

Hi. This is my first post here, I hop it is in the correct area.

We have 3 ESX 3.0.1 starter edition hosts and I am looking at updating them to 3.5 Foundation as we have gold support.

I have been looking into the new features, and update manager and VCB look like good reasons to update. However, whilst working on a test environment, I have noticed that Update Manager is installable from the Virtual Center CD. As we have a foundation license, I cannt get to a VC cd. The VMware site says I am not licensed to download it.

Where do I locate the installer for Windows for the Update Manager components?

Many thanks!

This isn't something you can download seperatly. It integrates with VirtualCenter and you'll need to buy this to use it.
