I am running Windows 7 RC and RTM both host and some VM's and I get this same error every time I try to connect to my VMWare ESXi server in the LAN:
VMWare vSphere Client 4.0 does not work on Windows 7 RTM 64bit running in a VM in fusion, it does work on a Windows XP VM in fusion. It does not work on a host Windows 7 RC1 64 bit install either. The program runs from the short cut. However when you try to connect you get an error "Error parsing the server "" "clients.xml" file. Login will continue, contact your system administrator." Immediately followed by this error: "The type initializer for 'VirtualInfrastructure.Utils.HttpWebRequestProxy' threw an exception." Anyone else seeing this issue? Full blog post
Please let me know if anyone else is seeing this issue.
