    Accessing Workstation 14 using the vSphere 6.5 Client SDK

    Occidius Lurker

      I asked this over in the Workstation forum and realized it may be better answered here...

       

      I have a stand alone client that I wrote that accesses a workstation and performs various actions on the VM (start/stop, copy file, execute program) using the VIX implementation.  Recently, I was asked to transition the VIX implementation over to a vSphere 6.5 SDK implementation.  I'm able to handle the power operations just fine, but I can't get any of the guest operations to work using the vSphere Client SDK 6.5.  All of the examples I've found say to get the guestOperationsManager managed object reference.  However, when I attempt to do that, it comes back null and there isn't a way to create one that I've found.

       

      Are there things missing in Workstation that exist in vSphere?  Is what they are asking for even possible?
