vSphere Web Client 5.0 displays RSL Error # of 29 or Error 2046

A new issue has recently appeared for all vSphere 5.0 environments when using the vSphere Web Client. The error appears to be a flash error caused by a .swz signature expiring on May 5th.
 

RSL Error # of 29
Error 2046

 
The good news is there does appear to be a workaround to resolve this issue while VMware continues to investigate a permanent fix. I have provided the steps to workaround the issue below.
 
Step 1. Download the following files:
 

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/flex/4.1.0.16076/spark_4.1.0.16076.swz

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/flex/4.1.0.16076/datavisualization_4.1.0.16076.swz

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/flex/4.1.0.16076/rpc_4.1.0.16076.swz

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/flex/4.1.0.16076/framework_4.1.0.16076.swz

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/flex/4.1.0.16076/osmf_flex.4.0.0.13495.swz

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/tlf/1.1.0.604/textLayout_1.1.0.604.swz

 
Step 2. Remove the versioning from the file names so they appear as shown below:

  • spark.swz
  • datavisualization.swz
  • rpc.swz
  • framework.swz
  • osmf.swz
  • textLayout.swz
  • sparkskins.swz


Step 3. Paste the files into each of the following locations. Note: You will do this while the vSphere Web Client is running.
 

C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphereWebClient\DMServer\work\osgi\configuration
\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\38\data\store\org.eclipse.osgi

C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphereWebClient\DMServer\work\osgi\configuration
\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\112\1\bundlefile\rsl\

C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphereWebClient\DMServer\work\osgi\configuration
\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\128\1\bundlefile\rsl\

C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphereWebClient\DMServer\work\osgi\configuration
\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\129\1\bundlefile\rsl\

 
Step 4. Clear all browser cache and flash player cache and attempt to access the web client again.
