Running the test

Before you run the test, complete the test setup as described in Bluetooth Controller Testing Prerequisites.

  • This test requires two test computers (one acts as Primary, the other Secondary). The test computers must have the same operating system, use the same radio transport and have a Bluetooth 4.0 compliant LE radio. The primary test computer must have the radio being certified for logo (Device Under Test).

  • Install Bluetooth Test Driver (BTHCSTI) on both machines (this is done automatically when scheduling through the WHCK Studio).

  • The Bluetooth radio must use the Microsoft Bluetooth Driver Stack for testing.

Tests are copied locally to the WTTJobsWorking directory and logs are copied to the default Logs server for WTT.

Enabling collection of Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) traces assists with diagnosing test failures.

These traces capture the HCI traffic sent to and from the Bluetooth stack. They can be decoded using Netmon and the Bluetooth ETW parsers. It is recommended to first investigate the issue internally using these traces or some other method of capturing over-the-air traces because many controller/stack inter-operability issues can be observed in these traces.

You can view the collected logs using Netmon and the Bluetooth NPL parsers. These parsers can be obtained through installing the WDK.

More information

To install the bthcsti driver, follow these steps:

  1. Copy the bthcsti.inf, bthcsti.sys, bthcsti.cat, bthcstisetup.exe, and devcon.exe files into a directory. Run the remaining steps from this directory.

  2. Run bthcstisetup.exe.

  3. Run devcon dp_add bthcsti.inf.

  4. Restart the computer.

  5. In Device Manager, verify that the bthcsti driver is installed.




Enables collection of ETW traces. If True, the ETW traces are enabled on the collection. If False, the ETW traces on the collection are turned off.

Default value: False
