Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:
  • Cannot access the remote console
  • After upgrading to VirtualCenter 2.5, accessing a remote console produces the error:

    Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation


Resolution

This issue exists with certain versions of Microsoft's .Net Framework. For more information, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 329097.
In some cases, continuing to install the rest of the VirtualCenter plugins resolves the issue.
If it does not, you must uninstall the VMware Infrastructure (VI) Client and install the latest .Net service pack:
  1. From Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs, uninstall VI Client.
  2. Obtain the latest service pack for .NET Framework from the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 329097 or from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/netframework/aa569263.aspx.
  3. Reinstall VI Client by opening a Web browser and pointing it to the IP address of the VirtualCenter machine. You are provided a download link for the client.
