More information

This test is run by using two test computers. Computer A runs the WHCKNearFieldInitiator.dll file and grades the test as Pass or Fail. Computer B runs the WHCKNearFieldResponder.dll file and returns a Pass or Fail result only to report on the computer’s support operations to the test.

Computer A creates a publication, and then creates a second publication of the same type. Computer A then subscribes to two reply messages from Computer B. Computer B subscribes to Computer A’s publication type. Computer B expects to receive two messages. After Computer B receives both messages, Computer B puts the message payload into a publication. Computer B then subscribes to the DeviceDeparted event and waits for this event to occur.
