    Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation ...

      I recently started getting this error after upgrading my ESXi 4 to ESX 4.1 which included a new VSpere client. Now when I use my VI client to attach to my ESX 3I server and try to start a console session i receive the following error:

      Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.


      I also receive the following error when trying to start a VM:

      Unable to get the window handle for the 'AxQuickMksAxCtl' control.

      Windowless ActiveX controls are not supported.


      I receive the above until I close and reopn VI, the VM still starts and works.


      I read some articles on here and microsofts site, all pointing to an issue with .NET 1.0 apps. Since I am running Windows 7 32bit .NET 1.0 is not installed and is not supported. However i still installed it in compatibility mode and is currently at .NET 1.0 SP3.


      Can some one please give me an Idea where to go from here as i am at a complete loss, and do not want to run multiple PC's to manage multiple VM servers.
