I found a simple test template on the web to get started learning C# / .NET but I have run in to a few errors when I try to execute the program.

"An unhandled exception of type 'System.UriFormatException' occurred in System.dll
Additional information: Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined."

If fails at ServiceContent sc = c.Connect("server01.dom1"); in VS2013.

C#:
[COLOR=#0B374D][FONT=Courier]using System;using System.Collections.Generic;using System.Linq;using System.Text;using System.Threading.Tasks;using VMware.Vim;namespace vmwaretest{    class Program    {        static void Main(string[] args)        {            VimClient c = new VimClient();            ServiceContent sc = c.Connect("server01.dom1");            UserSession us = c.Login("xxxxxx", "xxxxxxx");            IList<VMware.Vim.EntityViewBase> vms = c.FindEntityViews(typeof(VMware.Vim.VirtualMachine), null, null, null);            foreach (VMware.Vim.EntityViewBase tmp in vms)            {                VMware.Vim.VirtualMachine vm = (VMware.Vim.VirtualMachine)tmp;                Console.WriteLine((bool)(vm.Guest.GuestState.Equals("running") ? true : false));                Console.WriteLine(new Uri(vm.Guest.IpAddress != null ? vm.Guest.IpAddress : "0.0.0.0"));                Console.WriteLine((string)vm.Client.ServiceUrl);                Console.WriteLine(vm.Guest.HostName != null ? (string)vm.Guest.HostName : "");                Console.WriteLine("----------------");            }        }    }}

Here is the full exception detail:

Your code is all but unreadable. Please post code snippets as plain text inside
 tags.

Sorry about that - here it is:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using VMware.Vim;


namespace vmwaretest
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            VimClient c = new VimClient();
            ServiceContent sc = c.Connect("192.168.0.1");
            UserSession us = c.Login("xxxxxxx", "xxxxxxxxx");


            IList<VMware.Vim.EntityViewBase> vms = c.FindEntityViews(typeof(VMware.Vim.VirtualMachine), null, null, null);
            foreach (VMware.Vim.EntityViewBase tmp in vms)
            {
                VMware.Vim.VirtualMachine vm = (VMware.Vim.VirtualMachine)tmp;
                Console.WriteLine((bool)(vm.Guest.GuestState.Equals("running") ? true : false));
                Console.WriteLine(new Uri(vm.Guest.IpAddress != null ? vm.Guest.IpAddress : "0.0.0.0"));
                Console.WriteLine((string)vm.Client.ServiceUrl);
                Console.WriteLine(vm.Guest.HostName != null ? (string)vm.Guest.HostName : "");
                Console.WriteLine("----------------");
            }
        }
    }
}
