You can try browsing around Code Central: http://communities.vmware.com/community/developer/codecentral to see if there are any examples but I don't believe there are much for C++, there are plenty for C#.
If you're new to the VI/vSphere API, this thread will be a good starting place for gSoap & C++ integrate with the VMware API's

We dont really support C++ ;( but we have seen a lot of people use it and were generaly happy with results,,,, Is there a lot of interest in using C++ from the wider community ?
I'm not sure how wide the interest is for C++ but for application developers that need to use the VI API(s) it's high on our list. We will need both a Java interface and C++ interface. The C# interface is to limiting for our multi-platform applications.
Provided some other VMware API like the VDDK are made in C, well YES there is a real need for C/C++ which has the advantage to be portable and not dependent on an interpreter (java, C#).
I also agree there seems tobe not good support for web service using C++. There should be samples to get started accelerated fashion.
Hi..were you able to Create VM using c++? I have been able to establish a connection and list the available VMs.
