    VMware-viclient-all-6.0.0-3016447.exe broke Console on ESXi 6.0 and ESXi 5.5 hosts

    vlab2014 Novice

      Installed VMware-viclient-all-6.0.0-3016447.exe and it broke the Console: Failed to resolve ENGINE_load_aesni: 127


      Uninstalled and installed older VMware-viclient-all-6.0.0-2741530.exe, still same error.


      Loaded up procexp and found that it is launching:

      C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\VMware\VMware Remote Console Plug-in 5.5\Internet Explorer\vmware-vmrc.exe

      when connecting to ESXi 6.0 host


      Attempted to connect to an ESXi 5.5 host, same error, console does not load.


      Finally, connected to ESX 5.0 and everything works because it launches a different VMware VMRC Plug-in.


      Have no 5.1 hosts to test.

      Everything was working until VMware-viclient-all-6.0.0-3016447 was installed.


      Also this CPU has the AESNI instruction (Ivy Bridge)
