I've just upgraded my vCenter to v4
When I first went to install the vCenter Converter it ran through the GUI setup as expected, but once complete it threw an error stating:
Attempting to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.
??? Other memory??
I see this error every time I launch the VI client into VC.
In the plugins screen I see this for the vCenter Converter:
The plug-in failed to load on server(s) vcenter_server due to the following error:
Object reference not et to an instance of an object.
If I right click and try to enable it gives me a pop-up that says:
External component has thrown an exception.
Nothing in the Windows logs
Nothing in VC console or events.
Wow - that did NOT come up in a forum search for me.
Thanks folks. Glad I was able to resolve it, but rather sad to see VMware has not addressed the issue with a simple DLL placement.
