WHQL tests to perform RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I have a USB device which can to be put in a different mode for a different usage. The driver for this other usage needs to be certified for use. We have established a Winqual account for our organization and have set up the lab for WHQL testing.

     

    However, I am not sure which tests to run from the whole range of test categories. In the other mode, the USB device isnt used for neither Audio transfer nor Mass storage. I am planning to test only the following categories:

    1. Device Fundamental tests;
    2. Bus and controller tests; and
    3. Device Installation Tests

    Please let me know if these categories would be enough for getting the driver WHQL certified.

    You run the tests for the WHQL device class you want.  If your device
    doesn't fall into any of the standard classes, then you are "unclassified",
    and you run all of the tests for an "unclassified" device.
     
    DTM should tell you which tests to run.  You need to pass all of the tests
    it suggets.

    You don't need to run tests on XP.  I'm not sure WLK will even do that any
    more  When you submit your package, just ask for the XP signature as well.
    There's no extra charge.

  • Hi Tim,

     

    Thanks for the reply. I checked the tests for the device on Win7 64 and DTM automatically displayed a list of test categories and tests. However, i am not sure of the tests to run on Windows XP 64.

     

    Any input is welcome.

     

    Regards,

    rumDeep
