VMware Workstation 12 Hijacks VMware Remote Console

I noticed that since version 11 onwards with VMware Workstation when attempting to launch the Remote Console from vSphere Web Client that it will open up the console within VMware Workstation!

Initially this wasn’t an issue but sometimes there is a need when you just want to use VMware Remote Console.

The workaround for this issue of Workstation hijacking Remote Console is to simply Repair the VMware Remote Console installation:
