Culture 'en' is a neutral culture. It cannot be used in formatting and parsing and therefore cannot be set as the thread's current culture.

Try changing the 'en' to 'en-US'

This is NotSupportedException -The exception that is thrown when an invoked method is not supported, or when there is an attempt to read, seek, or write to a stream that does not support the invoked functionality.

You can use CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture() to get a specific culture for a neutral, however there are issues with that approach. See this for more details ->Neutral Cultures and CreateSpecificCulture()

here is a pointer to solve this problem.

the error is because of following reason.

A culture identifier is a standard international numeric abbreviation and has the components necessary to uniquely identify one of the installed cultures.

Cultures are generally grouped into three sets: invariant cultures, neutral cultures, and specific cultures.

A neutral culture is usually specified by the two-letter lowercase language code, such as en, de and fr. A specific culture is specified using en-US, en-GB, de-DE, fr-FRand so on.

When the vSphere Client is forced to display a different language to the operating system, a specific culture option must be used and not a neutral culture.
The error in the Symptoms section indicates that the .net Client was launched with the locale option en, which is a neutral culture

and the resolution

Culture can not be neutral. It must be specific like en-US or fr-FR.
