Until recently, I had all my VMware vSphere Client installations inside a Windows XP VM because Windows XP: relatively light weight, but (as of writing almost) End-of-Life.
I am upgrading that install now, and actually making two installs:
- on Windows Server 2003 R2 (the main VM management VM)
- on Windows 8.1 (my main Windows work laptop)
Of course I needed the installers for vSphere Client 4.1, 5.0, 5.1 and 5.5. The easiest os to get them through the direct download links at VMware: Vsphere Client Direct Download Links | tech :: stuff Read the rest of this entry »

The successor is Genymotion “the faster Android emulator”, and seems to have an easier installation path: Run Android on Your Desktop With Genymotion Android Emulator.
