After logging in to the vSphere Web Client using earlier versions of Internet Explorer 10 or 11 on Windows that does not have Microsoft security patch MS14-065, the login process fails and you are redirected to an incorrect link with no information on the page.  
Logging in to Internet Explorer (IE) directs you to vmware-csd://csd/?sessionid=.....


To resolve this issue:
Install the security patch MS14-065 from Microsoft or upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer.
Note: The preceding link was correct as of May 18, 2016. If you find the link is broken, please provide feedback and a VMware employee will update the link.
