Backward compatibility for VMware.Vim.dll (2144066)

  • 0 Ratings


This article provides information about backward compatibility of VMware.Vim.dll.


VMware.Vim.dll is an auto-generated .Net binding to the vSphere API on which the vSphere PowerCLI is developed.
PowerCLI supports backward compatibility for:
  • High-level cmdlets
  • Low-level API binding used through PowerShell
However, the backward compatibility may not be supported  if a .Net solution is directly using the VMware.Vim.dll bundled with vSphere PowerCLI .
Note: A .Net solution can be created referring to VMware.Vim.dll. However, VMware.Vim.dll is not an SDK and VMware does not allow backward compatibility.
