Just a heads up that I discovered winxp 32 bit isn't compatible with the 
new vsphere 5.5 client. I'm pretty sure it's because of 
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2049143 , but that refers to the real vsphere 
server whereas I'm connecting at the host level with the client. This is 
the error I get : http://www.mattkeys.net/winxp32_esxi55.png . The same 
machine using 5.1 client worked just fine, there are no 
network/firewall/av issues to note. My clients installed on Win 7 and 8 
machines are working fine. Also note the "you won't see all the new 
snazzy features of 5.5 with the real client" message. It seems like 
they're pushing you to the web client, which requires a vsphere server 
(standard/enterprise) license does it not?
