How do I uninstall previous plug-ins VMRC from Windows browsers?


How do I uninstall previous VMware Remote Console (VMRC) plug-ins from Windows browsers?

It may be useful to occasionally remove the plug-in used to connect to the console of virtual machines so that the latest version will install on the next attempt to connect to the console.


Only Internet Explorer supports the VMRC plug-in.

You can verify that the plug-in is installed in Internet Explore before uninstalling it.

Verify Plug-in
  1. Click Tools.
  2. Click Manage Add-ons.
  3. The Manage Add-ons window appears.

  4. Select Show of All add-ons.
  5. Select VMware Remote Console Plug-in.
  6. Information regarding the plug-in appears.
Uninstall Plug-in
  1. Click Start in Windows.
  2. Click Control Panel.
  3. Control Panel appears.

  4. Click Programs and Features.
  5. Programs and Features appears.

  6. Select VMware Remote Console Plug-in.
  7. Click Uninstall.
  8. The Programs and Features confirmation dialog appears.

  9. Click Yes.
  10. The VMware Remote Console Plug-in installation program uninstalls the plug-in.

Note: If you have a directory of C:\Program Files\Common Files\VMware\VMware Remote Console Plug-in 5.1 with a subdirectory of Internet Explorer, you may remove that directory. That directory was used by earlier versions of the plug-in.
