HCK for Windows 8.1 usage scenarios

The new HCK for Windows 8.1 supports certification for these operating systems:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2012 R2

    WLK 1.6 usage scenarios

    WLK 1.6 supports certification for these operating systems:

  • Windows Server 2003
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2008 R2

    Digital signatures for legacy operating systems

    When you successfully complete testing for a client certification of Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1, use the Windows Dev Center hardware dashboard to create a submission package for uploading - the same process that you’ve used in the past. And, if you’re using a unified driver that’s properly decorated to include Windows Vista and Windows XP, the dashboard has check boxes for digital signatures.

    When you successfully complete testing for a server certification of Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2012 R2, you can also use the dashboard to create a submission package for uploading. Again, this is the same process that you’ve used in the past. And similarly, if you’re using a unified driver that’s properly decorated to include Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008, the dashboard has check boxes for digital signatures. You can select the check boxes only if the driver being submitted was previously fully tested for certification. If you select these check boxes for Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2003, you must add to the supplemental folder a Readme file that includes the previous submission IDs for the Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003 certification testing. All submissions for which you select these check boxes will go into the manual review queue so that the previous certification for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003 can be confirmed. If no Readme file is provided for the certification testing for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003, the submission will be canceled.
