Install works, some basic functions work but needed ESX or VC config modifications to work via http protocol. Https now is not supported due errors in secur32
What does not
Connection to VMware server via https:// prefix. Remote console screen does not work.
What was not tested
Many other functions
.NET Framework 2.0 was installed via winetricks. If you get error message: "The server could not interpret the client's requests" (With http:// address prefix), you have to change server-side config from "httpOnly" to "httpAndHttps"

See the HOWTO here for more details on installing and configuring .NET 2.0.
