Fix for VMware View Administrator Console “The page cannot be displayed”

If you have installed VMware view connection server and on launching it from the shortcut it opens a webpage saying  that The page cannot be displayed, don’t worry, your vmware view server installation is fine but for some strange reason the machine is not able to understand localhost.

  • Right click on the shortcut,  created right after the installation, and go to Properties.
  • The url which is http://localhost/admin/ which is not working.
  • However if you type in your browser http://<yourmachinename>/admin/ it works fine.

VMware Sever Webpage issue

Since editing the url is not possible for that shurtcut, create a new one.

  • Right click on desktop, New > Shortcut > Add the url http://<yourmachinename>/admin/
  • Copy the icon path from the existing shortcut which you can find using the change icon button. For me it is %SystemRoot%\Installer\{323ABFB3-7444-4DE1-B3EA-274A0FFDEDA1}\arp.ico
  • Paste it in the new shortcut using the same button.
  • Delete the older one.
