Vi Client : Can't Right Click "manage hosts" on DVS

Hi,

I'm having the exact symptoms described in KB vSphere Client 4.1 randomly pop up multiple windows with error: " A internal error occured in the vS...

So I applied the workaround but it didn't solved the problem and added a new one. Now each time I right click->"Manage Hosts" on a DVS (regular of 1000V) I get a pop up showing the following error :

Error: An internal error occurred in the vSphere Client.

Details: Could not load type 'yWorks.Canvas.ScrollBarVisibility' from assembly 'yFilesViewer, Version=3.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7c80a434483c7c50'

Here is the corresponding excerpt from my client log :

Contact VMware support if necessary.

Has anyone encountered / solved this issue ?
Thanks,

I forgot to mention that the problem disappears when I unapply the KB workaround, i.e. when I restore the original VIClient.dll file.

Hello,

I have the exact same issue. Any solution? that's a little bit annoying to choose between having a lot of pop-ups or the impossibility to manage ESX networking....

Thanks,

Renaud

Hi,

FYI, it seems that the pop up problem disappears after uninstalling the Vi Client 4.1.0 build 258902 and installing build 345043 instead :

http://vsphereclient.vmware.com/vsphereclient/3/4/5/0/4/3/VMware-viclient-all-4.1.0-345043.exe

This build being the one linked to by my ESXi homepage.

Cheers,

Vincent.
