Veeam Backup host and vcenter client

Post by digitlman »

I'm trying to install the latest vcenter 5 client on my Veeam B&R host, and it halts with the error:

Product: VMware vSphere Client 5.1 -- Error 1406.Could not write value ProductLanguage to key \SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware Virtual Infrastructure Client. System error . Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

I have not had a problem on other servers. COuld it be something in the Veeam install that is causing this?

It is doubtful that Veeam made some sort of change to the system, hindering you from being able to install. To me it looks as though this is a permissions related error in that the account you are using does not have sufficient permissions to create a regkey.

I didn't think so, but thought I would double check. Thanks.

As far as I’m concerned, this error has nothing to do with Veeam installation and is related solely to VMware side.

However, there is a known remedy for it. The thing you have to do is very simple. Just follow these steps:

1. Click on Start button > Run, type regedit and press enter.

2. It will open registery editor. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc. and delete this entry.

Note: the aforesaid registry key is located either either in Wow6432Node or directly in Software.

3. After deleting this entry, Click on Retry button on your error.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Works like a charm (had Win 2012 DC Server here).

Thx & regards!
