i will try to give as much information as i can on the enviroment

1. the VC is installed on with Dutch  settings  ( i am not sure the english is available vc )

2. the user running the install is an admin on the VC .

3. user login the the VC machine is a domain admin

4. the vcenter server service is running under local system account - not sure this one is related since i've managed to install different plugin
