Java: VisualVM "Add JMX Connection..." missing from file menu

A quick note as I had not seen this before.
This occurred to me on windows 2008 R2 server platform.
I looked and even compared log files among computers could not find anything conclusive that would cause this. But for some reason the option to add a JMX Connection was not available any longer in VisualVM tool.
Not in context menu and not in File menu.

Much trial and error followed but the solution was to redo the installation.
Thus, the only thing that worked is to delete the VisualVM directory, re extract the zip files to a different directory, then start the VisualVM exe with Administrative privileges.
After the initial calibration, the Menu item for JMX Connection was available again.
