Open up .vmx file for the virtual machine in your favorite text editor and change the following line:
vmci0.present = “TRUE” to vmci0.present = “FALSE”
Save the file and your VM should launch.

The vSphere 5 client is using an IE plugin that isn’t compatible with IE10 as of this date. As of yet I haven’t found anyway to use the legacy plugin. For now you can either run vSphere within an XP VM or if you must use it in Win 8 you can do one of the following:
- Download and use VMware Guest Console. – http://labs.vmware.com/flings/vgc
- Upgrade vCenter to 5.1 and use the 51. Client. You cannot point a 5.1 client at vCenter 5.
UPDATE: Thanks to a reader, I have been informed that there is a new update for the VSphere 5.0 client that resolves this issue.
