Web client stop working properly in Chrome 43 (32-bit)

     Last night, when I use Google Chrome (32-bit, NPAPI plug-in enabled), I found out I can no longer Open Console for any VM (I was able to do this for all VMs, regardless whether they have VM Tools installed or not). Since I normally use Firefox, I only realized this now.  All my settings are correct, such as my client PC can resolve the hostname.

    I have two Windows 7 machines, I have installed VMware-ClientIntegrationPlugin-5.5.0.exe as always. I noticed that when I login, I no longer get the Google warning about their ending support for VMware Remote Console/Client Support plug-in [First picture was what I have encountered 1 months ago, I no longer see that], so does this mean you can no longer to use Google chrome 43 to manage vSphere 5.5?

     I have made the change exactly as directed, now the two yellow warnings do come out, but "Open Console" is still grayed out.

     Another challenge I always have is the font of Web Client absolutely can't be zoomed in, on my 1080p screen, it looks awful.

    I just wonder decision makers at VMware, are they extreme egocentric psychopath who are also sadistic?

Seems your web client plugin is not installed correctly . reinstall it and see if it works.

   Thanks, I reinstalled that multiple times, no change. In fact, Chrome worked 3 weeks ago, I never made any change to my PC, I normally use Firefox, but when I tried it last night with Chrome, it didn't work.

   So my question now is this: is it still possible to use Web Client (with all designated features available) without Adobe flash?
