Windows Logo Kit
The Windows Logo Kit (WLK) contains everything needed to certify devices for Windows—Driver Test Manager (DTM), the required tests, and the documentation to help set up DTM and execute the tests.
To qualify for the Windows Logo Program, your product must pass testing with the WLK:
- For a device logo: Pass tests that verify device reliability and performance.
- For a driver quality signature: Meet all criteria for drivers, as defined in logo program requirements.
- For a system logo: All devices and drivers in the system must have device logos or driver quality signatures, and the system must pass an additional series of tests.
