Is Your Flash Plugin Crashing with the vSphere Web Client?

I had this problem recently.  No matter what browser I used, I couldn’t get past the login screen of the vSphere Web Client.  My PC had upgraded to Flash Player a few days ago.  I attempted to uninstall this version and install a previous one with no success.  But after doing some research, I found a KB Article from VMware.

The first step was to uninstall Flash Player cleanly.  I found the link below which allowed me to download a Flash Uninstaller to cleanly remove the app.  It’s recommended to reboot after uninstalling. 

Then, you can go to this link:

Download the flash player for the browser you’re using, be it IE, Firefox, Opera, Chrome (or Chromium), etc..

Once I upgraded to the beta version mentioned above, the Web Client started working normally again!
