  • Certifying hardware with the Windows Hardware Certification Kit

    by Craig Rowland

    The Windows Hardware Certification Kit (formerly the Windows Logo Kit) has a completely new design that will shorten learning curves for new users, and make experienced users more productive. It also has, for the first time, a complete automation interface which enables partners to execute end-to-end testing via scripts. The kit has also been enhanced to be multi-function, multi-platform and multi-feature aware. This session will introduce the new user interface, object model and aspects of feature-based testing. It will also include walkthroughs of certification activities using both the direct user interface and automation interfaces.
