    Windows Vista Logo Compliance Level Clarification

    The Windows Logo Program explicitly identifies the compliance level and the versions of the operating system for which the product (system or device) passed compliance testing. After the manufacturer completes the self-test process and submits test logs to Microsoft, Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) validates this compliance.

    For the Windows Vista Client Operating System, a product (system or device) can obtain one of two levels of compliance, as described below. The following table provides guidelines for how the compliance levels map to Windows Vista client SKUs and which logo can be used on each SKU.

    Windows Vista SKU Basic Systems Premium Systems

    Ultimate

    Yes

    Yes

    Enterprise

    Yes

    Yes

    Business

    Yes

    Yes

    Home Premium

    Yes

    Yes

    Home Basic

    Yes

    No

    Compliance Levels for Windows Logo Program

    "Windows Vista BASIC" and "Works with Windows Vista" logo level
    A system or device being tested is deemed compliant when it meets the basic logo requirements (previously known as "silver" or "standard" logo level) as defined in the Windows Logo Program Requirements Suite Version 3. This level of compliance indicates to a customer that the product works well with Windows. The basic logo requirements ensure reliability, stability, security, and proper installation, as well as implements functionality that take advantage of some of the latest Windows innovations.

    The "Windows Vista Basic" logo for systems and the "Works with Windows Vista" logo for devices ensure hardware and devices have been tested to Microsoft standards and proven to work. Certified hardware partners can distribute device driver software on Windows Update and take action on device driver performance feedback from Windows Vista customers.

    An example is no stop errors, proper installation, and proper removal. For audio devices, it would mean that it implements Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) and other functional requirements in Windows Logo Program Requirements Suite.

    Note that for device categories defined in the Windows Logo Program documentation that have Basic logo requirements but no Premium logo requirements defined can only qualify for the "Works with Windows Vista" Basic logo. Though the requirement headers may have an 'R' in both Basic and Premium level, unless there is only an 'R' in the Premium, the device will only qualify for a Basic logo.

    "Windows Vista" and "Certified for Windows Vista" Premium logo level
    A product being tested is deemed compliant when it meets the premium logo requirements (previously known as "gold" logo level) as defined in the Windows Logo Program Requirements Suite. This level of compliance indicates to a customer that the product enables additional or enhanced capability with Windows, thereby enabling a premium experience.

    For audio devices, although the basic logo includes requirements for basic audio support, the premium logo includes requirements to support high fidelity to enhance the audio experience.

    Unclassified Program
    Devices from device categories that are not currently defined as part of the Windows Logo Program requirements are allowed to submit drivers for signatures under the Unclassified Program. The driver will be validated against a core set of driver tests to validate stability under Windows Vista. For more information, see Unclassified Signature Program.

    Windows Codenamed "Longhorn" Server Logo Program
    For the Windows Longhorn Server operating system, a product meets the logo compliance level as described below:

    A system or device being tested is deemed logo'd when it meets the logo requirements as defined in the Windows Logo Program Requirements Suite. The logo requirements ensure reliability, stability, security, and proper installation, as well as implements functionality that take advantage of some of the latest Windows innovations.

    A separate submission is required with the necessary test logs if any device must be logo'd for client and server.

    If they logo the system (premium or basic) and ship with Windows Vista starter edition then that is fine. 

    But they cannot use either the premium or basic logo’d on the product. 

    For testing the system, they need to use the appropriate OS sku for qualifying the system for premium or basic.  The DTM is not supported on Windows Vista starter edition.

     

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Microsoft do not logo systems or devices for Windows Vista starter edition. The Logo License agreement clearly states that a system pre-installed with Windows Vista starter edition cannot display any of the Windows Vista logos.

     

    Thanks,

    If they logo the system (premium or basic) and ship with Windows Vista starter edition then that is fine. 

    But they cannot use either the premium or basic logo’d on the product. 

    For testing the system, they need to use the appropriate OS sku for qualifying the system for premium or basic.  The DTM is not supported on Windows Vista starter edition.

     

    Thanks,

    Steve
