  • I am getting the same thing.  Made a package with Version 3.2 of Dell Command Configure Wizard to activate TPM on my Dell machines and I cannot use the import Wizard to bring it into SCCM.

  • Hello,

    I just wanted to say that I am now experiencing the same issue. We recently upgraded our SCCM from 2012 SP1 to CB 1607, and after experiencing the issue, and re-installing Dell Integration Suite, it still happens.

    I can create the exe, but when trying to use the Dell contextual menu to Import it to SCCM, it doesn't work and I get the Object reference object message.

  • Same problem here, have not found the work around yet!

  • I'm seeing the same error on a sccm 1610 console, any help?

    thanks

  • so apparently the problem is not coming from dcis but cctk (dell command | configure

    https://twitter.com/WarrenByle/status/843889641371697152

    Dell Command Configure 3.2 import issue. Workaround is to edit package.xml in payload folder. Top line needs to reference UTF-16 not UTF-8.

    On 64-bit system package.xml for Dell Command Configure is located at:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\Command Configure\Payload\package.xml"

    If using version 3.2.0 first line should be modified to:

    This will allow for import to SCCM through Dell Command Integration Suite.
