  • Hi,

    For the best practices I think  both features are mandatory for the WLAN drivers. Anyway refer the following link for features that corresponding to each  product type:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/3/6/23662F33-71E8-43C1-8547-5DE49B0374AB/windows-hck-product-type-matrix.zip

    It will explain Each product type defines what features and requirements you must meet in order to obtain a certification.

  • Hi Harsha,

    Both features are mandatory for the validating the WLAN driver. And anyway When you connect a device to a Windows HCK environment, the kit searches for features on the device using a mechanism called gatherers, why do you bother about that.

  • Thanks for the reply.

    What I mean  is that, whether the features 802.11w and WiFi Direct need to be implemented to get Windows 8 Logo certificate ?
    Or even without those features implemented also, can we get Windows 8 Logo certificate ?

    I mean whether these are optional features (only if implemented, will be considered for testing), or they are mandatory?
