Appendix C. Usage of Non-Compliant 3rd-Party Components

In some cases, and for a limited time, your application may be eligible for Certification even if it relies on non-compliant third-party database or message store components.

This exemption applies only when all of the following requirements are met:

  • The only non-compliant components are database and/or message store components.

  • Your organization does not have access to or permission to modify the source for these components.

  • Your server application requires these components in order to run.

  • You submit your application to VeriTest for server certification prior to Feb 1, 2001.

  • All other components of your application pass certification testing by April 1, 2001.

  • If your application has a readme, you must document the fact that your product requires non-certified components in that readme. You must also provide a link to the VeriTest Web site where your Certification Results are hosted, which is currently http://www.veritest.com/mslogos/windows2000/certification/. If your application has no readme, then you must document this prominently in your product documentation.

Important Note   Databases and message stores are the only components subject to this exemption.
