Detailed Description

The New-HwCertProjectDefinitionFile cmdlet creates a Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK) project definition file. The project definition file includes the targets, such as devices and systems, for certification tests. The HCK automation tool uses the settings in this file to determine which targets to test. 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 update this generated file by adding any changes that are valid with respect to the project definition file schema.

Parameters

-ClassIdList<String[]>

Specifies an array of class GUIDs as strings. For more information, see {Class-GUID} (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc957340.aspx) in the TechNet library. You can use a comma-separated list.

-HwIdList<String[]>

Specifies an array of hardware IDs for target devices. You can use a comma-separated list.

You can specify partial hardware IDs. The cmdlet matches a partial value as a substring of the hardware ID format. The comparison uses ASCII characters and is not case sensitive. If the ID contains an ampersand character (&), enclose the ID in double quotes (""). In Windows PowerShell®, the ampersand is a reserved character.

Examples

Example 1: Create a project definition file for a driver

This command creates a project definition file. The command populates the project file with HCK target values for which disk.sys is a device driver, and from all machines available in the Test07 pool.


PS C:\> New-HwCertProjectDefinitionFile -MachinePool "Test07" -DriverList "disk.sys"
