Dell Command | Configure is a software package that provides BIOS configuration capability for Dell client systems. IT can use this tool to configure BIOS settings and create BIOS packages using the Dell Command | Configure User Interface (UI) or

Command Line Interface (CLI).

Dell Command | Configure supports following Windows and Linux operating systems: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10,

Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE), Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, Ubuntu Desktop

This guide provides the installation instructions for Dell Command | Configure.

NOTE: This software was rebranded as Dell Command | Configure after Dell Client Configuration Toolkit version 2.2.1.

● Dell Command | Configure 4.4 or later generates a 64–bit SCE with constraints.

● On a 64–bit client machine with a WoW64 subsystem, both 32–bit and 64–bit SCE are generated.

● If a WoW64 subsystem is not present in the client system, and then only a 64–bit SCE is generated, and a 32–bit SCE is generated on a 32–bit client machine. Also, Dell Command | Configure prior to 3.3 or later generates 32–bit SCE.
