We are running vcentre v6 and everytime we power on a VM we get the message
'VMware Remote MKS has stopped working' and the console stops working
We then have to log out and log back to get the console to work
This issue happened to me recently and i traced it down to having installed the remote console plugin the day before it started happening. I uninstalled that program as well as all other vmware software and then reinstalled vsphere client 6 and now all is back to normal.
This explains a lot and seems to be the fix I was looking for, thank you very much. I would really like to see VMware engineers to put in a proper check for the VMRC, since I already had version 7 or 8 installed before I installed (or upgraded) to PowerCLI 6.x, which installed the flaky 5.1 VMRC software. That would prevent this from happening in the first place.
You did the same thing i would have done. But you have to only uninstall the remote console plug in. must be some conflict with that remote plugin for the web interface and the GUI client.
Hi, we had the same issue after installing PowerCLI 6.3. We testet the registry hack of enriquepessoa and the rename/copy hack of jde126 successfully. Deinstalling the Remote Plugin 5.1 and reinstalling VIClient 6.0 did not work for us.
Thank you Very much,
I was suffering from last 3 month with this issue, But your solution working 100% for me.
In My live lab, this error is coming frequently when I just connect Esxi 6.0 U1 with vSpher Client "VMware Remote MKS has stopped working".
1. Some host console displaying "Unable to connect to the MKS.Internal Error" this error resolved after proper configer or mantioned default getway of Esxi server. after that I restart the "Instant" (virtual internal systems ) and resolved its error successfully.
2. Also I installed your giving .reg & its 100 % work.
