Need clarification on "TC2.11.3 Custom columns must not be added to standard tables" RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    Just to clarify the third point under Verification section of "TC2.11.3 Custom columns must not be added to standard tables"

    <!--[endif]-->"Fail this test case if the application is installed via a bootstrapper or chainer and any Windows Installer package that is called from the bootstrapper or chainer did not add any Custom Columns to the MSI Standard Tables. Any created Custom Table or Properties for those tables must not be prefixed with ‘msi’ in order to pass this test case."

    Here, the test Fails if the Windows Installer package did not add any Custom Columns to the MSI Standard Tables. (i guess it should Pass the test if the custom columns is not added to standard tables).

    Please clarify.

    Thanks.

  • Hi Irfan,

     

    It seems that there might have been more clarity here. However, you can follow the essence of the test case and use the Certified for Windows Server Logo tool for comparison. This test case is automated in the tool.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Irfan,

     

    Amitava is correct here. This is a result of a poorly worded run-on sentence.

     

    Verification Step 3 should read as a Pass, not Fail:

    3.      "Pass" this test case if the application is installed via a bootstrapper or chainer and any Windows Installer package that is called from the bootstrapper or chainer did not add any Custom Columns to the MSI Standard Tables. Any created Custom Table or Properties for those tables must not be prefixed with ‘msi’ in order to pass this test case.

     

    This will be rewritten for clarity.

     

    I will confirm that our Certification Tool automation does not Fail this test case.

     

    Hope this clarifies,
