Windows Hardware Certification Kit QFE Updates

Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) updates are included as part of the Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK) download. To get the latest QFEs for the Windows HCK, run HCKSetup.exe.

The Windows HCK download includes all previous QFE updates.

In this topic:

Which version of the Windows HCK do I have?

Before you install QFEs for the Windows HCK, first determine if you are already up to date:

  1. On your controller, use Control Panel to go to the Uninstall a Program dialog.

  2. You will see Windows Hardware Certificate Kit on the list of installed programs. It will have a version number like 8.59.25584

  3. Compare the last five digits of the version number with the QFE list below.

Most QFEs will be optional. This means that you can create submission packages that will be accepted without the QFE installed. If a QFE is required, you will need to install the QFE before you can create submission packages. You should restart any projects you have not completed after you install a QFE.

How do I install the QFE?

Before you begin installing QFEs on your controller, make sure that you do not have any tests running. Also be sure that all of the open Windows HCK Studio and HCK Manager windows attached to the controller have been closed. If a QFE includes changes to the ARM client, you may also be required to uninstall your ARM clients before you install the QFE. Each QFE will indicate if this is required.

If you’ve already started the process of certifying a device using the HCK for Windows 8.1 Preview, you’ll need to continue to use this version of HCK until your submission is complete.

To install QFEs, rerun HCKsetup.exe by clicking the following link:

Download Image Download the Windows HCK for Windows 8.1

WarningWarning
You must always run the latest version of HCKsetup.exe from the internet. As new QFEs are made available, the HCKSetup version is also updated. If you downloaded an older version of HCKsetup and the version of HCKsetup online is a different version, installation will fail.

When you run HCKsetup.exe, you are given the option to Install or Download.

  • If you select Install and the Windows HCK is already installed on the machine from which you are running, only the updates that have been released since you last ran setup will be installed.

  • If you select Download, you may select to download either Windows HCK Studio Only or Windows HCK Controller + Studio. The entire set of files required to do a clean installation of the option you select will be downloaded, including all cumulative updates. When you run HCKSetup.exe from the downloaded folder on a machine which already has the Windows HCK installed, only the updates that have been released since you last ran setup will be installed.

    • For Downloaded Windows HCK Studio Only:

      When you run HCKSetup.exe from the downloaded folder, your stand-alone HCK Studio will be updated. No uninstall/reinstall is required.

    • For Downloaded Windows HCK Controller + Studio:

      If the QFE contains updates for the Windows HCK Client, those updates will be automatically pushed out to any x86/x64 clients that are attached to the controller when you run HCKSetup.exe. If they contain changes to the ARM client, you will need to uninstall the ARM client before you install the QFE, then re-install the ARM client after the QFE has been installed to your controller. If the QFE contains updates for the Windows HCK Studio, for a remote installation of Windows HCK Studio that was installed from the Windows HCK Controller's Studio Install share, the next time the user starts Windows HCK Studio they will be informed that an update is available. To install the update, the user will need to uninstall and then reinstall Windows HCK Studio.

ImportantImportant
After a QFE has been installed, it cannot be uninstalled.

After you determine which version of the Windows HCK you have, review the following list of updates to determine whether you would benefit from downloading the latest version of the Windows HCK, which includes all of these updates.

QFE Update 007 (Build ID: 8.100.9624)

Release date: August 13, 2013

Optional or required: Optional

Description of change:

  • Check Thermal Zones – The fix is to make "SetupDiGetDeviceProperty failed: 490" log an information one, instead of an error. The fix also addresses the error: "Fan(s) did not change their states" by having two idle periods (sandwiching the heavy workload period) to give the fan a chance to turn off.

  • Fingerprint Reader Logo Tests – This fix ensures that basic mode devices will pass all the logo tests when engineOnDevice capability is set to FALSE and advanced mode devices will pass all the logo tests when engineOnDevice is set to TRUE.

  • Smart Card Logo Tests – This fix ensures that customers can pass all test cases.

  • Pan Zoom VSync WHCK Test – This test has been updated to be DPI Aware. This fixes false failures in performance tests due to DPI being scaled.

  • WGF11 Resource Access – This fix allows the test to continue running after failure rather than aborting the remainder of the test.

  • Wireless Display Verify Sink Failed To Set Mode – The test replies with "failed to set mode" message on very first M4 message without verifying that the message contains set mode request. This fix eliminates the false failure.

  • Wireless Display Verify Mode Change WHCK Test – This test has been fixed to ensure that failure in the subset tests do not cause the following tests to abort and fail.

  • The display gatherer incorrectly assigns the type of a device when the feature query failed, resulting in a failure to populate features on Windows-7. This QFE fixes this issue by ignoring the failure on Windows-7 as the feature is not available on it.

  • The fix for the following tests addresses intermittent failure during setup task execution:

    DXGI SCDest Buffer (D3D10.1 on feature levels 9.1-10.1)

    DXGI SCDest Buffer (D3D11 on feature levels 9.1 and 10.0)

    DXGI GDI Interop D3D10.1

  • DevFund tests (i.e. name DF - *) Without the fix, and based on the state of the device under test, the msdsm filter driver can bugcheck the system with C9 code.

  • NDISTest 6.5 - PM_Requirements – This change restricts the NumTotalWoLPatterns checks to AOAC machines.

  • NDISTest 6.5 - [2 Machine] - VMQBasicVerification – Test was changed to validate the case where a destination MAC address field criteria is set to match that of the physical NIC's permanent MAC address.

  • NDISTest 6.5 - [2 Machine] – VMQBasicVerification – Test was changed to validate the case where an NVGRE packet arrives with a VLAN ID.

  • Cib Raid Controller Kit Tests – The test currently treats all non-win8 machines as win2k8R2. The test is fixed to run properly on Win2k12R2.

QFE Update 006 (Build ID: 8.100.9621)

  • The following tests have been fixed to turn off the monitor power before running the test. This change eliminates false failures due to the inability to turn off the monitor.

    HybridPowerManagement_AppIdelMonitorOff

    HybridPowerManagement_AppRunningMonitorOff

    HybridPowerManagement_NoAppMonitorOff

  • WGF11 SharedResources - This fix corrects a device leak in the test, which can lead to failures.

  • WGF11 L9NativeUpdateSubResource - Test has been failing because UpdateSubresource calls on regions of resources that are not byte-aligned and compares virtual memory performance using byte-aligned copies. This is fixed by aligning the region in which we are copying to and removing any false failures.

  • The following tests are:

    1. fixed to remove false failures due to process running on dPGU with no contexts. The fix checks if there are any contexts on these devices and fail only if there are.

    2. fixed to ensure specific process running on dGPU does not cause the test to fail

    3. updated to have a tolerance of 50us transition latency

    4. updated to skip the Active/Idle validation for components marked as DXGK_POWER_COMPONENT_OTHER.

  • “XPerf D2D DComp Write Once Perf test - Scenario='Read2Write1' - R2W1 (may require manual interaction to remove power cord)” - Test was failing because of wrong goal calculation.

  • "Device Driver INF Verification Test (Certification)" - Updates validation for Display Driver INFs to ensure that correct FeatureScore is used for Windows 8.1 Display Driver.

  • H264 Encoder HMFT VisVal test 802 - The fix specifically checks whether the HMFT supports 1080p before asking it to encode at that resolution handle the return value and mark the tests "skipped".

  • "Touch Slate HW LOGO test" - The test binary was not loading with Windows 8 devices.

  • Changes to the following tests ensure these tests continue to use VRAM for capture.

  • Audio Fidelity Test - This change updates the profile created by the test to fix random hangs in rws.exe due to malformed XML.

  • "PrintTicket Test" - Test no longer fails with an AppVerifier stop: VERIFIER STOP 00000202: Freeing heap block containing an active critical section.

  • Updated HCK Documentation

  • DPC ISR Tests - Test failed because total interrupts exceeded maximum allowed interrupts

  • Supported added for the new WLAN adapter standardized keyword h (*MiracastSupported).

    NDISTest 6.5 - WLanBasic

    NDISTest 6.5 - [1 Machine] - PM_Requirements

  • This change affects non-ARM devices which are AOAC capable. The tests were failing to do a WLAN connect upon S3 sleep resume. This change skips the variation for those devices as the S3 state is invalid for these devices.

  • E2EPerf Test: Sometimes E2EPerf would run forever until stopped by the end user. This fix allows the tests to complete by removing the race condition causing an indefinite wait.

  • Cib Raid Controller Kit Tests - The test currently treats all non-win8 machines as win2k8R2. Since the PowerShell cmdlets are different for 2k8R2 and 2k12R2, the test needs to be fixed to run properly on Win2k12R2.

QFE Update 005 (Build ID: 8.100. 9616)

Release date: July 30, 2013

Optional or required: Optional

Description of change:

  • Thin Provisioning Performance Test - NTFS (LOGO) - The change prevents thin provisioning drives from going offline while the permanent resource exhaustion is hit. Preconditioning, write back, and Unmap with write test cases are removed.

  • BitLocker E2E HCK tests are now linked Device.DevFund.Firmware.UpdateDriverPackage requirement in addition to the TPM requirements.

  • The following system-level tests are incorrectly failing when an HMFT is present on a multi-gpu system, but the GPU needed for the HMFT is not the active one. This change fixes the issue to skip the tests when there is no HMFT available for the active GPU.

  • DXGI HybridPresent (FL9.1), DXGI HybridPresent (FL9.1) (WoW64) WHCK Tests have been updated to fix false failures.

  • "F-State Latency Validation - video" validates the latency time reported by the driver to go from an idle to an active state. The fix reduces the number of events logged and hence the size of the ETL file generated.

  • The following tests have been updated to remove FState Transition latency requirement.

    HybridPowerManagement_NoApp

    HybridPowerManagement_AppIdle

    HybridPowerManagement_AppRunning

  • “Webcam Controls - FlashMode - Manual System Test " resolved issue with the test that photo mode was not being set correctly while taking pictures in photo sequence mode, causing the flash to not illuminate.

  • “Device Desciption Document” - DMR optional field entries (DDD-01). This change removes the model number field check, which is also removed from the requirements.

  • Sensor ReadyState Verification Test (System) - Fix failure when there are multiple sensors on the system and one of them is location sensor.

  • Prompts and assumptions about the location requirement of 'Windows Button' reworked. Especially in establishing a reference position on the device at the beginning of the test. Affected tests:

  • “WindowsToGo boot test” requires the user provide a Windows Image (install.wim) file. The test provides an unattend file that automates OOBE, however if the Partner supplied install.wim already has an unattend file in their image the test will fail. The fix will log a message that the partner supplied unattend file is being used rather than the test unattend.

  • “UART Controller Test(Stress)" The test was blocking UART controllers that expose a different ClassGUID than the one it's expecting. Check was be removed.

  • This fix optimizes the performance of the UART HCK tests:

    UART Controller Test(Basic tests)

    UART Controller Test(Functional tests)

    UART Controller Test(Stress)

  • WiFi Direct Scenario Tests - Pairing Stress. This fix is a reliability improvement for Wi-Fi Direct pairing stress. The test fix is to turn off the discoverable state on the SUT before disconnecting from the device and then set the discoverable state on again after the disconnect occurs.

  • NDK Logo Tests: Some test cases in NdkLogoTests.exe contain a bug in an error cleanup path which can cause the test to crash in the presence of certain driver failures. This fixes that error cleanup path so that the underlying driver failures can be diagnosed.

QFE Update 004 (Build ID: 8.100.9611)

Release date: July 23, 2013

Optional or required: Required

Description of change:

  • Validate HAL Extension have no Imports

    Test will fail with error message Validate HAL Extension have no Imports' failing with Error 'CheckImports - MapAndLoad((null)) failed, error=2'.

  • NVMe Device Capabilities

    Test verifies minimum value of AERL in Controller Registers to be 4, but AERL is a 0's based value and this test fails if AERL is 3 which is a valid value.

  • Currently, the hybrid spec has priority 0 defined as a priority that has behavior that is vendor specific. There are certain test cases that test for requirements around certain timing requirements. We have removed these test cases for the ones that test for priority 0. This should allow for an easier certification. Test impacted:

    • Hybrid Information Cache Verification Test (LOGO)

    • Hybrid Information Command Test (LOGO)

    • Hybrid Information Read-Write Test (LOGO)

    • Hybrid Tagged Performance Test (LOGO)

  • Wdf-Kmdf fault injection test

    There is a bug in the in-box filter driver scfilter.sys which causes the OS to bugcheck during this test. This filter driver attaches to all smart card readers, and therefore this bug causes certification runs for all smart card reader drivers to fail. This fix addresses the bug so that certification runs no longer crash.

  • AutoMemoryBenchmark

    Test has been updated to discard unused allocations after a timeout to addresses false failures.

  • The displaygatherer.dll collected incorrect information on Server Core and some other Server SKUs due to lack of graphics subsystem in the OS, the data was rejected by sysparse.exe blocking the HCK. The fix checks for graphics support from OS and gathers only the data which is valid.

  • PerfX2 D2D Bench - Access Violations have been fixed

  • Wireless Display Verify Sink – the following errors have been fixed:

    • The test may fail with the message "Monitor shouldn't be connected after the set mode failed" which is because the test isn't allowing time for the driver to react to the RTSP message.

    • The test may fail due to a critical error in the driver because the RTSP message did not use the correct sequence number.

    • The test may fail due to RTSP or GetOverLappedResult timeout becase the test is not expecting sudden shutdown due to the message failure.

  • The following tests will fail with a message ""Failed to force sleep state" OR "Failed to force hibernate state"

    • Wireless Display Verify Sleep

    • Wireless Display Verify Hibernate

  • "Verify Frame Quality test" has been updated to fix crashes caused due to decoding of corrupt video file."

  • "VSYNC inphase"

    The requirement for VSYNC test has changed from the following:

    Earlier requirement:

    All Vsyncs which are within the ‘keep phase’ state have to be within 500 us of the expected arrival time. New requirement:

    • 98% of the Vsyncs must be within 500 us

    • For Vsync ON, max variation is 1.5 ms

    • For Vsync OFF in-phase state, max variation is 10 ms

  • Multiple fixes to Precision Touchpad HCK Tests

    • Requirement:Device.Input.PrecisionTouchPad.Precision.Linearity Test.LinearityDiagonalMultiple.json; Test.LinearityVerticalMultiple.json and Test.LinearityHorizontalMultiple.json

      - If the IHV or OEM builds a precision touchpad within documented depth tolerance of 1.5mm, the test equipment may not be able to make both contacts hit the edge of the touchpad on a parallel stroke. If this check is in place, the partner will fail the test even though they have met the requirements.

      - For MP, the tolerances were inconsistent across various test iterations. This change corrects them; otherwise it is possible for an IHV or OEM to artificially fail some portions of the linearity tests while passing others.

    • Requirement:Device.Input.PrecisionTouchpad.Precision.StationaryJitter Test.StationaryJitterMultiple.json

      - If the IHV or OEM has met the requirement, but is using one of our described equipment vendors and techniques, they may artificially fail the test due to human error in placing the contacts. The human error is practically unavoidable. This fix allows for some stabilization time to get the contacts on the touchpad surface before verifying the jitter.

      - When multiple contacts are brought down in such close proximity the tolerance for stationary jitter isn't sufficient and will result in false failures.

    • Requirement: Device.Input.PrecisionTouchpad.Hardware.Clickpad

      - For MP, the test failed to check the button state was consistent across a frame which resulted in some devices hanging the logo test instead or returning a failure.

    • Requirement: Device.Digitizer.PrecisionTouchPad.Performance.ReportRateApplies to all tests since it runs in the background.

      - Host performance issues can result in false failures due to an insufficient number of samples to calculate the device's report rate. This mitigates this issue by requiring averaging across a minimum of 20 samples instead of just 10.

    • *Applicable to all systems with an integrated precision touchpad*

      - When running system logo tests with a PTP device present, the applicable PTP HCK tests won't show up and be executable due to an XPath query issue. This fix resolves the query issue so the tests can be run for system logo submission.

  • Webcam Performance System Test - There are currently 2 start capture engine initializations events thrown, test is using the fist init event to measure start performance, which causes an artifically high start up latency. This fix updates the test to have only initialize call for capture engine.

  • Webcam Glitch free record System Test - WNCameraRequirements (Manual) .Currently the Glitch free test is using H.264 in an ASF container to record video, this is not a mainline scenario. Updating test to verify the framerate with H.264 in an MP4 container.

  • The test currently exits the Video player process instance after it finishes, which is occasionally returning a failure code when a race condition in which error 9009 is given, but the process is still killed. This change will now log the error and but not fail the test because of it.

    • WNGlitchfree HD Video Playback on DC with Audio Offload (Manual on mobile systems)

  • USB Host Controller Compliance

    USB controller filter drivers will crash during USB controller certification. Fix will register the USB compliance validation driver with the power framework thus no longer cause issue.

  • Change fixes problems with validating vendor-specific entries, and adds support for newly introduced PrintSchema features, and improves some error messages to make them more actionable. Tests impacted:

    • “PrintTicket Test"

    • "PrintTicket Conformance Test"

  • Packaging for a submission using deep merge can cause the following exception -

    "Unable to create package. A foreign key value cannot be inserted because a corresponding primary key value does not exist. [ Foreign key constraint name = FK__TestResultParameter__000000000000026E ]"

  • All tests that have filters are expired or updated.

    HCK Studio will crash when a previously applied filter has expired and is reverted from the test result, due to a permissions issue writing to Program Files directory.

  • DevFund INF Test

    This test fails if a driver INF uses UMDF directive UmdfFsContextUsePolicy.

  • NDISTest 6.5 - WlanOffloads – OSStack

    This test has the high potential to fail due to missing the necessary packets when in a low power state due to all the packets coming in on the same beacon interval. By adding a 50ms delay between each packet transmission the likelihood of the client missing the packet is minimal.

  • WLAN Data Path Tests – Functional

    This fixes the test from hanging indefinitely. Additionally the will now stop clean everything up if it is hung for more than 30 minutes.

  • D0 Coalescing Feature Test

    This only applies to WLAN device tests. The D0 Coalescing feature test currently uses netmon, installed on the support machine (SUT), to parse the traces from the Client machine (DUT). However, some IHVs need to use an ARM machine as the SUT and netmon doesn't have a ARM version. The AP machine will always be either an amd64 or x86 machine. So by using the AP machine to do the parsing, this issue will be resolved.

  • NdisTest 6.5 - WLAN* - preconfig (ap machine)

    The wlansvc will wait for the vwifilt service to finish the attempt to start a virtual adapter before the shutdown will occur. The issue is that the custom atheros softap driver doesn’t support virtual adapters (by design) and thus vwifilt will wait the full 60 seconds before it fails to start a virtual adapter. The current time out in the preconfigure to stop wlansvc is 30 seconds so an error is logged. This error has no effect on the overall test run but will prevent an errata/contingency filter from being applied correctly.

  • The wlan wake tests can sometimes fail with no packets received or with a loss of backchannel communication. The reason for this is when the system goes into a low power mode the Ethernet adapter is going to sleep as well. These tests require the Ethernet adapter to stay awake and connected in order to complete the test. The fix for this is to simply take a handle on the Ethernet adapter before the system is put into a low power state. This will keep the Ethernet adapter connected and powered up for the duration of the test. Tests impacted:

    • NDISTest 6.5 - WlanWakeTests

    • NDISTest 6.5 - WlanWakeTests –OSSTACK

  • NDISTest 6.5 - [2 Machine] – CheckConnectivity

    Running any NDISTest job against an SR-IOV NIC’s VF driver bug checks the system. To fix the problem, NDISTest adds “ndisvf” as the lower binding range for the test protocol.

  • Addressed an issue with drivers that require DRMLevel for protected content playback. Prior to this fix, users would receive packages that were missing the necessary information to receive XP/Vista downlevel catalog markup. With this fix, packages are generated correctly and all downlevel OS are available in the package.

  • Fixed System jobs that are now able to handle scenarios where current system state impacts running of these tests:

    • DXGI HybridPresent jobs

    • Hybird - Independent Driver Update Jobs

    • HybridPowerManagement

  • The following jobs are scheduled on x86 builds which results in longer execution time of the kit. WOW64 jobs should only run on AMD64 platform:
