Running the test

Before you run the test,, you must create a Driver Verification Log (DVL) by performing the following steps.

  1. Run the Static Driver Verifier and the Code Analysis tool on the driver source code.

  2. Run a utility that generates the DVL file.

  3. Copy the DVL file from the computer that was used to create the DVL file to the test computer that is used when you run the Static Tools Logo Test. Copy the file to the %systemdrive%\DVL directory on the test computer. Be sure to delete the contents of the directory on the test computer before you copy the new driver verification log.

For more information about creating a Driver Verification Log file to include with your submission, see Creating a Driver Verification Log.


   The Static Tools Logo Test requires only the DVL file to show that Code Analysis and SDV have been run. The test does not require all rules to pass. Additionally, this job must be run on Server with Desktop. If the HLK test fails from using Server Core (with error message: "RoMetadata.dll could not be found"), the workaround is to run on Server with Desktop and then merge the package with the package containing the results from Server Core. Information on how to merge packets can be found here:
