Cannot Connect to GSX Server Host from Windows NT 4 Client (1734)


When I try to connect with the VMware Virtual Machine Console from a Windows NT remote client, I see the following error:
Unable to locate DLL. The dynamic link library WININET.dll could not be found in the specific path.

How can I connect to a virtual machine from this client?


In order to use the VMware Virtual Machine Console on a Windows NT 4 client to connect to a GSX Server 3.1 or later host, you need to install Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 on the client. This installs the correct version of the WININET.dll library.
