How to install vSphere 5.5 client on a domain controller

Always give credit where credit is due. Looking for a simple solution I found the following article:

http://www.josephturley.com/install-vsphere-5-5-client-domain-controller/ – Thank You

But in summary and just in case you are one of the ones that just look for the solution and not the entire blog post, here is how you install the Vsphere client in a Domain Controller:

Make sure you run this command into your Command Prompt or Shell window:

VMware-viclient-all-5.5.0-1281650.exe /VSKIP_OS_CHECKS="1"

The command will flag the installation to ignore some information that detects the Domain Controller installation.

I hope this helps to the ones that play with labs in their homes or work!
