vCenter 6.0u3h – client integration plugin installation failed

This post was originally published on this site



after upgrade of vCenter from 6.0u3d to 6.0u3h (Windows 2012 R2 server), the old client integration plugin no longer works. So I downloaded a new installation file from the web client authentication page, but the installation fails with error:


There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.


The installer is now divided into two components, run in a sequence: an actual client integration plugin installer (which seems to be installed successfully) and VMware Plug-in Service installer (producing the error). I found a similar problem description regarding an older version of the client ( VMware Client Integration Plugin 6.0 install failed – solution  ), but the workarounds mentioned there did’n help in my case.


Without the integration plugin I am not able to transfer files from and to NFS shares, so it’s quite urgent.


Thanks in advance,
