Windows 8 & Console

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I have a little problem since windows 8 .

I have 3 ESXI 5.0 servers. I saw that console in vsphere client 5.0 may not work on windows 8. So I installed VGC (Vmware Guest Console). All works fine !

But I installed a fourth ESXI 5.1 server. I installed vsphere client 5.1. Console works now in vsphere client but only on ESXI 5.1, not 5.0 with the message "VMRC console has disconnected..."

On VGC, VM Console not works on ESXI 5.1 with the message: "Unable to connect to the MKS: Internal error". All VM Console on ESXI 5.0 work...

Can you help me?

Thanks a lot

For Client 5.1 VMRC Error:

Read last page posts, talking about killing certain process then uninstall client then reinstall

FIXED: The VMRC Console Has Disconnected - Windows 8

Which client to install for windows 8

Hope it helps Smiley Happy

Use vSphere 51U1, vSphere 50U2 products are supported to work with Windows 8. It may not work with previous release.

Refer the vCenter server/ESX 51U1/50U2 release note under New feature section.
