VMware 2.0 Remote Console doesn't install on firefox 2 or 3

The remote console plugin begins, but then fails with "unexpected error" and suggests checking the error console which, of course, I did dutifully. It pointed me to line 3938 crying that the object within had no properties.

The offending line:

 var installLocation = this.getInstallLocation(;

Any information on the "" in question? Any references to it in the error console?
Btw, are you sure that vm was properly installed? I seem to remember you were having a different issue a few days ago (different but possibly related?). Someone on a different forum was having his own issues and it turned out that the root of the problem was that he had not assigned a hostname to his host system; apparently, the console can behave rather quirkily if IP addressed are used instead of hostnames.
