Question:

Why am I prompted to install VMware Remote Console (VMRC) Plug-in for Internet Explorer?

Answer:

The first time you attempt to Connect to a Virtual Machine using Connect on the Devices tab of Infinicenter Console, the browser prompts the user to install the VMware Remote Console (VMRC) plug-in from VMware Inc.

This is a normal operation. Infinicenter Console requires the add-on to establish a connection to the virtual console port of a virtual machine using Connect.
