The requested resource is not available

New installation of vSphere 5.5a on a Windows 2008 x64 VM with all componenets (SSO, Web Client, Inventory and vCenter)

Cannot get Web Client to work, unless I install it to a path with no spaces, ie E:\vmware\

I get the error: The requested resource is not available with a 404 webpage when trying to access https://serverFQDN:9443

I have seen article http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=204495...

but it makes me no wiser as it states C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\

If I stick with E:\subfolder\ it works fine

Anyone found a way to install the Web Client to path contining spaces?

Thanks for any input,

M

Good for you that you were able to get it to work installing in a different path. I usually install web client in the default directory due to bug from that same KB article. So I would normally install SSO, Inventory Service and vCenter to a different directory  (not C:\) and leave Web client install on the default (C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure)

Strange I can't even get it to install in the default path, C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure. It seems that the space in "Program Files" is the issue for me. Anyway, I will not spent more time on it as it can be documented and it does work now. Thought vmware could get this right though.
