Error when importing vPro Module for PowerShell

When loading Intel vPro Technology Module for Windows PowerShell v16.0.5.1, the following error is displayed:

 

At C:\Program Files\Intel\IntelvProModule_16.0.5.1\Bin\IntelvPro\Invoke-AMTGUI.ps1:353 char:47
+ for ($i=0; $i -le $properties.Length � 1; $i+=2)
+ ~~~

 

There is a corrupt character between $properties.Length and 1; on line 353 in the file Invoke-AMTGUI.ps1

 

In a hex editor the character is shown as EF BF BD

 

In a previous version (IntelvProModule_16.0.0.5), that line is displayed in a text editor as:

for ($i=0; $i -le $properties.Length – 1; $i+=2)

 

That makes it look like a minus sign (-). However when viewing that version in a hex editor, the character is show as 96. ANSI character 0x96 is actually an En Dash.

 

I'm assuming this is supposed to be a minus sign? (which would be 0x2D)

Hello, ICIT,


I hope you're doing well.


After doing some tests, the development team determined this is an erratum and will be fixed in the next release of the vPro Module for PowerShell. 


In the meantime, you can directly edit the module on line 353 and replace the characters with a hyphen and it will work. 


We will gladly provide further assistance if necessary.
