HCK Studio - Selection Tab

The Selection tab displays all features that a device implements. Before you can see any features, you must first select a machine pool (drop-down list in the upper left corner). You can also search for specific features using the combination search drop-down list and search field.

The specific testable device is called the target. A device may contain multiple targets, represented by one or more hardware IDs. You can filter what you want to test by:

  • Show selected. This option displays the targets that you’ve selected. This view allows you to see just the areas you're testing. You also can filter a machine pool by category by using the category list. You can search for specific targets/features by using the search box.

  • Systems. To test a complete client or server computer.

  • Devices and printers. To test an external device that's connected to a test computer. This device typically appears in Start > Devices and Printers on the test computer. This usually represents a collection of devices found on the Device Manager tab.

  • Device manager. To test a component of a test computer or external device, for example, a network card. This is the most detailed view.

  • Software devices. To test filter drivers, firewalls, and antivirus software that's installed on the test computer.


    Some software drivers are associated with a physical device. If you cannot find your driver under Software Device, use the search bar on Device Manager to find the device under which your software driver is associated.
