Problems installing FOM on ESX4i

Hello I have a problem with installing the FOM on an ESX4i platform. I am not able to start the fom. ESXi version is 4.1

Can't exactly tell wat the error is ( I am no longer at customer site ) but it looks like a compatibility issue.

Can anyone confirm that the FOM is supported on an ESX4i 4.1 platform.???

I have installed a couple of Failover Mangers on ESXi 4.1 and they are running without any issues. In both cases I uploaded the FOM to the ESXi datastore and added it to the inventory. Both then just started with any problems.
