Seperate WHQL submissions for 32-bit and 64-bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    For the USB driver that I am currently testing for WHQL, i have completed the testing on Windows 7 64-bit. However, due to a single failed case i cant complete the testing for Windows 7 32-bit.

     

    I was planning to make a single submission to WHQL only for the 64-bit testing that has been completed. I would later submit the logs for the 32-bit once that testing has completed successfully.

     

    I would like to know if i can follow this approach or do i have to submit the logs for the 32-bit and 64-bit together itself.

     

    Regards,

    IF you submit 32, THEN you have to submit 64, but I believe it's possible
    to submit 64 by itself.  So, you could submit 64 now, then submit 32+64
    later.
     
    However, you will have to pay two sets of fees.  They will be two separate
    submissions -- WHQL can't link them.  That alone might be enough to make
    your decision for you.
