  • No it does not.  At one point the agreements indicated they could still ask for the device or computer for testing, but I don't know if that is still the case.

  • Hello Donald,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Could you please specify the agreement name or link for the same, which states that Microsoft may ask for device or computer for testing.

    As per my understanding, microsoft never ask for 'Device shifting' in whole course of driver signing process. But, according to the 'Policy 0009(Audit policy)' microsoft can select any device, system or hardware ID for an audit. Is my understanding correct?

    Please reply.

    Thanks.

  • Yes your understanding is correct. If device under test, Hardware or system fails the audit entire product line of the certified product will be seized by microsoft and may also attract penalties.
