Re: Possible issue with VMWare and this month's updates
To follow up on this, we've just installed VMWare 4.0 update 1 at my site, and I
can confirm that the updated version of vSphere has resolved the problem I was
having. (I never did get a chance to run experiments to confirm that this
month's .NET updates triggered the issue, but it seems likely.)
