Solution

After an upgrade to VirtualCenter 2.0.2 (Update 1, Update 2 or Update 3), the installer does not copy all the files required for the Welcome page to be viewed properly.

To solve the issue:

  1. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\docRoot.
  2. Create a folder called en.
  3. Download the attached welcomeRes.zip and extract welcomeRes.js to the newly created folder.

Once this is done, you can properly view the VMware VirtualCenter 2 Welcome page.

Note: This problem only occurs on an upgrade of VirtualCenter. Fresh installations are not affected.
