PCIHCT fail - "Subsystem Vendor ID register of header table is 0h" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have another issue with PCIHCT. I test our hardware now on Windows 7 x64. The PCIHCT fails in the "Process logged messages"-step. The Logfile contains the error "Subsystem Vendor ID register of header table is 0h". I applied all filters, the test keeps failing. Is the error caused by the hardware or can I change something in the software to get this test pass?

    The hardware is pretty old, we can't change the PCI configuration space. So I need a solution I can do in software, or are there some parameters I can set that the header-table-checking is ignored?

    Thanks for your help,

  • The manufacturer of the PCI card would need to change the firmware of the PCI chipset to make the register read only.    Contact the PCI card manufacturer for further assistance.

  • The PCI specification for years stated that a value of zero in the SubSystem Vendor ID meant that the PCI device did not support subsystem ID's, but it was a valid value.  To me this sounds like a test that has gone too far.
