Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1 Bundles


Bundle has System Requirement checking for registry key/value

ERROR: "RegValueExistsRequirementHandler
System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Length cannot be less than zero."


This is fixed in version 10.2 - see KB 7003225 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with SP2 (10.2)" which can be found at

Additional Information

This error can be seen if either:
a) the requirement looks for a key/value immediately under HKLM (HKEY_Local_Machine) or HKCU (HKEY_Current_User)
b) HKEY_Local_Machine or HKEY_Current_User is misspelled in the system requirement
