HCK2.1 for Certification RRS feed

  • Question

  • I used pendrive  to get Certification on Win8 & server 2008 R2.

    but now HCK 2.0 will retire on November 30.

    I want to ask is how do I set up a new test environment?

    what kind of server 2008 R2 or sever 2012?

    what kind of client Win8.1 Preview or RTM or Pro?

    what kind of tool Hck2.1 or Hck2.1 RTM ?

    How do I set up to get the Win8.1 LOGO

    Best Regards

  • Server machine should better contain Server 2012 OS or Server 2012 R2 OS (after its official release on october 18th).

    Client machine should be the one for which OS you want your device to get certified. It shall be Win8 Pro or Server 2008R2 or Win8.1 RTM V6.3 or WinServer 2012R2 and it depends on you.

    HCK 2.1 RTM already released so its better to start using it.

    Let me know for any further queries.

  • Here is the WHCK's landing page which has a lot more information on system requirements etc.

    Either Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012 can be used as HCK Controller.  You should use the RTM version with the latest QFE.

  • HCK 2.1 supports all OS (Windows 8.1, Windows 8, etc).  The client OS just depends on your testing needs.  This is somewhat of a general answer, but if you have specific questions regarding the right selection, you should contact Microsoft support or your Microsoft TAM.
