On at least one machine I am getting errors reported to the ZCC like the following:

Warning: [12/7/17 3:12:46 AM] InventoryManager InventoryManager.RunFAProblem InventoryManager.RunFAProblem{RunFAProblemUnexpect edException (Object reference not set to an instance of an object.)}

Then it is followed shortly by:

Warning: [12/6/17 3:30:00 PM] InventoryManager InventoryManager.RunFAProblem InventoryManager.RunFAProblem{RunFAProblemUnexpect edException (Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not closed: uninstallString, WindowsPlatformSWComponent, SWComponent, SWComponents, Software, ResultSet, WIF. Line 7372, position 202.)}

What does this mean?

In general, what does the warning: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." mean?

Thanks,

Dan
