Merge-HwCertTestCollectionFromHckx

Merges test result information from several .hckx package files into a single test collection.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Merge-HwCertTestCollectionFromHckx [-LiteralPath] <String[]> [-Force] [-HckBuildVersion <String> ] [-IncludeAll] [-ValidationXmlPath <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Merge-HwCertTestCollectionFromHckx cmdlet merges the test result information from several .hckx package files into a single test collection. For more information, see Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK) (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/hh833788.aspx) in the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Library.

You can use the Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml cmdlet to export the merged test collection as an .xml file. You can use the New-HwCertTestCollectionExcelReport cmdlet to create a Microsoft Excel report of the test results.

The cmdlet parses each .hckx package file, and then generates a cached .xml file in the same location as each parsed file. Therefore, you must have write permission for the folders that contain the .hckx package files.

Parameters

-Force

Indicates that the cmdlet parses the .hckx package files, and then replaces any existing cached .xml files.

-ValidationXmlPath<String>

Specifies the path of a test collection .xml file to use for validation. The cmdlet checks the new test collection against the validation collection to ensure that at least one result exists. Validation helps to determine that all the tests merged from child lab collections meet the goals of the original test collection.

To obtain a test collection file for validation, use the New-HwCertTestCollection cmdlet, along with the Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Merge two package files

This command merges the results in two .hckx package files. The command specifies files named BasicTest.hckx and CertificationTest.hckx.


PS C:\> Merge-HwCertTestCollectionFromHckx -LiteralPath ("C:\Temp\BasicTest.hckx", "C:\Temp\CertificationTest.hckx")

Example 2: Merge two package files and export the result information

This command merges the results in two .hckx package files and exports the result information to an .xml file named Merged.xml. The command merges files named BasicTest.hckx and CertificationTest.hckx. The command passes the merged results to the Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. That cmdlet exports the results.


PS C:\> Merge-HwCertTestCollectionFromHckx -LiteralPath ("C:\Temp\BasicTest.hckx", "C:\Temp\CertificationTest.hckx") | Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml -Output "C:\Temp\Merged.xml"

Example 3: Merge several package files and export the result information

This command merges the results in all the .hckx package files in a specified folder and exports the merged result information to an .xml file named Merged.xml. The command uses the Get-ChildItem cmdlet to get all the .hckx files in the C:\Temp folder. For more information, type Get-Help Get-ChildItem. The command passes the .hckx files to the Merge-HwCertTestCollectionFromXml cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. That cmdlet merges the test results. The command then passes the merged results to the Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml cmdlet. That cmdlet exports the results.


PS C:\> Get-ChildItem -Recurse "C:\Temp\*.hckx" | Merge-HwCertTestCollectionFromHckx | Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml -Output "C:\Temp\Merged.xml"
