Knox Configure client crashes during ProKiosk enrollment


  • Product: Knox Configure (KC)
  • Knox version*: 2.7
  • Model number: SM-G532
  • Android version: 6 (Marshmallow)

NOTE: Android 7 (Nougat) running Knox version 2.7.1 and above is the minimum Android version KC fully supports.


When enrolling an SM-G532 device using a ProKiosk profile, the KC client crashes with a "Unfortunately, KC Client has stopped" error message. 


This error is related to the following dumpstate log sample: 

08-09 13:57:15.332  7170  7243 E AndroidRuntime: FATAL EXCEPTION: IntentService[JSONIntentService]
08-09 13:57:15.332  7170  7243 E AndroidRuntime: Process: com.sec.knox.kccagent, PID: 7170
08-09 13:57:15.332  7170  7243 E AndroidRuntime: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Failed resolution of: Lcom/samsung/android/feature/SemFloatingFeature;

The SemFloatingFeature instance is null, which returns an exception in the API isDexSupported()


To address this issue, a try catch was added to the isDexSupported() API. The exception is now handled when the SemFloatingFeature instance is null.

KC supports Android 7 (Nougat) with Knox version 2.7.1 and above. Unfortunately, the Samsung Knox team cannot guarantee KC's compatibility with devices running lower Android/Knox versions.
