DTK Commander Tool Bug


Here is a bug I've encountered in the DTK Commander:

1. Open AMT Commander and connect to AMT client (AMT version 3.2.3)
2. Select Intel Management Engine tab
3. Open the user accounts page
4. Add a new account and select ALL permissions
5. An error message will appear

********** 3/20/2009 7:50:55 AM
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

at ManageabilityStack.AmtSecurityAdmin.ResetUserAclEntries(AmtUserAcl[] newUserAcls)
at ManageabilityCommanderTool.Panels.ComputerPanel.setUserAccountsButton_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)

at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

I believe this error message is a result of the AMT 3.x platform lacking certain functionality (eg. disk encryption), and the UI isn't smart enough to catch this scenario. It's just my best guess though ... I haven't stepped through any of the C# source code in Visual Studio yet.

Did you also submit this (along with the exceptions.txt log file, assuming it exists) to the support e-mail Tim mentioned previously ( That should help them get the ball rollling on supporting this. I'll also let Tim know about this as well.
