On a Microsoft® Windows® CE–based device, the RDP User Scenario Performance Test establishes a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) session with an RDP server. The test measures the length of time elapsed during the steps of the RDP session.

The following table shows the hardware requirements for the RDP User Scenario Performance Test.

RequirementDescription
RDP serverA Microsoft Windows XP-based desktop computer that can function as an RDP server. This desktop computer should be a different computer than the development workstation that runs Microsoft Platform Builder and the Microsoft Windows CE Test Kit (CETK). For information about configuring the RDP server, see Running the RDP User Scenario Performance Test.

The following table shows the software requirements for the RDP User Scenario Performance Test.

RequirementDescription
Startrdp.exeExecutable file for the test.
RDPPerfConfig.exeExecutable file that creates a test account, with a user name that you specify, on an RDP server. RDPPerfConfig.exe also verifies that the WinBench 99 application is installed and completes other tasks required to configure the RDP server to run the RDP User Scenario Performance Test.
ClientVC.dllModule that Remote Desktop loads on a Windows CE–based device. This module communicates with an RDP server over a virtual channel to track the time spent in each test.
Perflog.dllModule that contains functions that are used to monitor and log performance.
WinBench 99Benchmarking software from VeriTest that runs on an RDP server. You must license WinBench 99 from VeriTest.
WB_Time.dllServer-side module that captures the test finished message and notifies ClientVC.dll after each test is done.
RDPServer.exeServer-side executable file that starts when the test RDP session opens. This application starts the RDP User Scenario Performance Test and establishes the virtual channel with ClientVC.dll.

To run the RDP User Scenario Performance Test, you must include the Remote Desktop Protocol Catalog item in your OS design before you build your run-time image.

Note   When you run the RDP User Scenario Performance Test, the CETK temporarily copies files to the root directory of the target device. While the test runs, the test dynamically consumes program memory on the target device. Before running the test, verify that there is at least 0.2 megabytes (MB) of free storage memory on the target device. Also verify that there are several MB of free program memory on the target device. The exact amount of program memory required depends on the configuration of the WinBench 99 application on the RDP server. If there is not sufficient space in the root directory of the target device or there is not sufficient program memory, the test cannot run.
