VI client on Windows Vista?

Is anyone successfully running the VI Client on Windows Vista? I have read some posts that have said it is unstable on Vista, but none of them are terribly recent.

Before we can even consider users running Vista, IT desktops need to run Vista, but we can't have IT desktops run Vista until we know things will work.

Also, do updates get released for the VI client? If so, how do we get them? It appears the only way to get it is by downloading it from the web interface on my VirtualCenter server or from the CD that comes with ESX server.

Hi,

I am using VI Client 2.5 with Vista Business Ed. and it is on the compatibility matrix for Vista 32Bit.

2.0.x is not on the matrix.

You can download the Virtual Center 2.5 Update 1 zip file insted of the ISO and it has all of the subcomponents including the client.
