I am trying to install vSphere Client 5.1 on Windows 8. When I download and install, and then open the application, it says that it needs to download support files from the internet.
Once it does that, I open the support files, with filename
VMware-viclient-all-5.0.0-455964-5.0.exe (notice it is version 5.0, not 5.1).
Why does it do that? When I try to install these (although they are the wrong version, I thought I would see if it would work anyway), it says that it is only compatabile with version of Windows XP SP2 and above.
