Running the Display Adapter and Chipset Tests

After you have installed the test devices and drivers in the test clients and have set up the DTM controller, DTM Studio, and clients, you can run the logo tests.

To use DTM to run the Display Adapter and Chipset logo tests, do the following:

  1. Open DTM studio.
  2. On the Explorers menu, click Job Monitor.
  3. Create a machine pool to use for the submission.
  4. Move all test systems to this newly created machine pool and make sure that the machine status is set to Reset.
  5. Make sure that the DisplayGroup.xml file is updated with the proper ASIC grouping. You can find this file on the DTM controller under \\<controllername>\tests\x86fre\nttest\windowstest\graphics
  6. Schedule the Update DisplayGroups.xml on Test Machine job to run on all test clients. This job copies the DisplayGroups.xml file that was edited to the %INSTALLATIONDRIVE%\Program Files\Microsoft Driver Test Manager\Client folder on the client test systems. This job can be found in the Job Explorer (on the Explorers menu, click Job Explorer, and then click the Feature tab). Alternately, you can manually copy this file to the %INSTALLATIONDRIVE%\Program Files\Microsoft Driver Test Manager\Client folder on each test system.
  7. The Display Adapter -> Codec jobs content is going to be provided outside of the DTM because of the size of its content. Go into the CODEX folder and place a copy of everything in this folder into the \x86fretest\bin\NTTEST\MULTIMEDIATEST\CDSPTEST\ folder, on the DTM Controller.
  8. On the Explorers menu, click Device Console. (You can also switch to the Device Selection window by clicking the Device Console tab in the lower left corner of DTM Studio.)
  9. In the Submission list, click <New Submission>.
  10. Complete the Submission wizard. When you are finished, a list of jobs will be displayed.

    Note  If you are submitting multiple INF files, you must load all INF files during the submission wizard.

    Note  You must run all of the jobs that appear, but you can choose which order you run them in. We recommend that you schedule all of the jobs that have (Manual) in the title at the same time to ensure they are sent to one system instead of any system in the pool.

  11. Select the jobs that you want to run, and then click Add Selected. The jobs selected will appear in the bottom window.

    Note  You might see multiple instances of the same job in the bottom window; this behavior is expected. The customer scheduler for display uses the answers that you give in the Submission wizard, display devices that are listed in the INF file, devices that are actually in the machine pool, the Displaygroups.xml file, and attributes of the jobs to determine which of the tests and how many get scheduled.

  12. When you are ready to run the jobs, click the Schedule button.
  13. Use Job Monitor to track the progress of jobs while they are run.
  14. When testing is complete, click the Status button in the Device Console window and review the information that is provided.
  15. If there are any issues, correct them.
  16. After you verify the status information, right-click the summary icon in the Available Devices pane of Device Console, and then click Create Submission Package. This process might take a few minutes to complete.
