How to Load VMware vSphere Client onto a PC
VMware vSphere Client
Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Win 7, Win8, Win8.1, Win 10
: vSphere Client requires .Net Framework 3.5 be present before it will install properly. Windows XP, 8.x, and 10.x do not ship with .Net Framework 3.5 so it must be installed prior to installing vSphere client.
