Relative Open Test

Note  This content applies to the Windows Logo Kit (WLK). For the latest information using the new Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK), see Windows HCK User's Guide on the Windows Hardware Dev Center.


The Relative Open Test uses NtCreateFile to open handles to a volume, directory, stream, and reparse point. It then uses relative open to create files and alternate data streams on these handles. The test is intended for file system driver developers who want to verify that their drivers comply with a standard set of expected file system functionality.
