vSphere Web Client – You’ll need a new app to open this VMware-csd

“Do you want to allow this website to open an application on your computer?”
After clicking Allow the following message appeared:
"You'll need a new app to open this wmware-csd"
I am using Internet Explorer 11.447.14393.0 on a Windows 10 workstation. As suggested on the vSphere Web Client Software Requirements page I am using a supported browser which already has the Adobe Flash Player integrated.

- Log in to the vSphere Web Client
- From the Help menu choose About VMware vSphere
