FIX: The Host Configuration Utility fails to start after you use it to configure Host Integration Server


You configure Host Integration Server by using the Host Integration Server Configuration Utility. When you restart the Host Configuration Utility, it may fail, and you receive the following message:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.


This problem occurs because a date value that is written as Culture-Invariant is being parsed as non-Invariant-Culture.


This issue is fixed in Cumulative Update 1 for Host Integration Server 2016.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
