Thursday, 10 December 2020. Together, Ansible and Chocolatey bring faster and more secure deployments to your Windows environments. Use Chocolatey for software/package management and Ansible to automate and guarantee the desired state of your Windows infrastructure, allowing your team to securely deploy applications faster than ever. The code in Example: Creating an Object Instance of the VMRC Browser Plug-In can be included anywhere in the HTML code that makes up your Web application. Subsequent VMRC API examples in this document refer to the plug-in object instance using the value vmrc as set in the example. VMware Remote Console provides console access and client device connection to VMs on a remote host. You will need to download this installer before you can launch the external VMRC application directly from the vSphere web client. To get the most current version of the VMware VMRC client, visit the VMware site.

Fixed Issues

Known Issues

The following issues are known to affect this release.


General Issues

  • Starting VMware Remote Console from a terminal session might result in the following message:
    This application must be launched from a vmrc URL
    The message appears when you omit the URL in the command. By design, you start VMware Remote Console from a client such as vSphere or vRealize Automation, or with a vmrc:// URL.
    For help with the VMware Remote Console command line, enter:
    vmrc.exe -?


  • When connected to a virtual machine, VMware Remote Console might display the following message:
    The keyboard hook timeout value is not set to the value recommended by VMware Remote Console
    By design, you click OK to update the timeout value, then log out of Windows to ensure that the update takes effect.

  • Installing VMware Remote Console on a system where other VMware applications have been installed might result in the following error:
    Failed to install the HCmon driver
    Workaround: Go to Task Manager, Services tab, and stop the VMUSBArbService. Then, proceed with installation.
    Alternatively, launch the .msi installer from a command prompt window that you opened with Administrator privileges.


  • There are device-related options that are not available when running VMware Remote Console on a Mac. For example, you cannot add new devices, or display sound card settings. Unavailable Mac options are noted where applicable in the documentation.


  • VMware Remote Console on Debian 8.7.1 does not open remote virtual machines.
    You successfully install VMware Remote Console on Debian 8.7.1, but it does not launch. When run from the console, the following message appears:
    Loop on signal 11.
    In addition, the log file under /tmp/vmware-$USER/ contains a panic and backtrace.
    Workaround: None

  • VMware Remote Console on Ubuntu 17.04 does not display certificates for viewing.
    You use VMware Remote Console on Ubuntu 17.04 to connect to an ESXi host that has an invalid or untrusted security certificate, and a certificate warning appears. When you click to view the certificate for inspection, an empty dialog appears, and you can only close the dialog.
    Workaround: None

  • Wayland protocol is not supported.
    VMware Remote Console requires Xorg and does not install or run under Wayland sessions. Installation errors occur on newer operating systems that use Wayland, such as Fedora 25.
    Workaround: None

  • The Help link does not resolve.
    Workaround: Open a browser directly to www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vmrc_pubs.html

  • Remote Console automatically powers on virtual machines when connecting to virtual machines that are powered off.
    Workaround: None

  • Remote Console automatically closes when a remote virtual machine shuts down.
    Workaround: None

  • Remote Console cannot be installed on the same virtual machine as VMware Workstation or VMware Workstation Player.
    Workaround: None

In vSphere 6.5 and some simultaneous updates to earlier versions, VMware moved away from NPAPI (since Google is set on killing it) and instead introduced two new consoles, the HTML5 browser console which is quite frankly horrible (especially without VMTools), as well as a new “thick” console that installs on the client machine called VMware Remote Console. This is a welcome development, as moving away from NPAPI can’t come a day too soon, and anything that isn’t Flash based is always nice.

There’s only one problem, the install frequently fails on Windows 10.

The error VMRC throws is quite cryptic as well; “Failed to install hcmon driver”. This is usually because the VMRC installer fails to play nicely with UAC in Windows, and for some reason doesn’t manage to get the required permissions from the OS to install the hcmon driver (which seems to be a virtual USB something that you’ll probably never need anyway). The workaround is quite simple, give it the required permissions from the get-go, so that it can bypass UAC altogether. The normal way to do this would be to right-click the installer and select “Run as Administrator”. However, I’ve not managed to get this to work on any machine I’ve tried it on.

The way that works on the other hand that I’ve found, is to open up an elevated PowerShell prompt and call the installer from there.

Navigate to the directory where you downloaded the VMRC installer, type in (and tab-complete) the name of the installation package, and press enter. After this, the install should continue smoothly.
