Partition Driver Test (Windows CE 5.0)
The Partition Driver Test verifies the functionality of the application programming interface (API) set for a custom partition driver using a storage device such as a hard disk or Compact Flash card. This test covers the full API set for the partition driver. The test verifies that data is written to and read from the disk properly. The test also checks for overwritten partition boundaries.
This test is only necessary if you implement a custom partition driver. It is not necessary to run this test if you use the partition driver distributed with Windows CE.
The following table shows the hardware requirements for the Partition Driver Test.
|Read/write storage media||Storage media that can be read from, written to, and partitioned, such as a hard disk or Compact Flash card.|
The following table shows the software requirements for the Partition Driver Test.
|Tux.exe||Tux test harness, which is required for executing the test.|
|Kato.dll||Kato logging engine, which is required for logging test data.|
|Tooltalk.dll||Application required by Tux.exe and Kato.dll. Handles the transport between the target device and the development workstation.|
|Msparttest.dll||Test .dll file.|
|Partition driver||A compatible partition driver.|
|Read/write block driver||A compatible read/write block driver.|
Note When you run the Partition Driver Test, the CETK temporarily copies files to the root directory of the target device. Before running the test, verify that there is at least 0.4 megabytes (MB) of free space in the root directory of the target device. If there is not sufficient space in the root directory of the target device, the test cannot run.
