Introduction to the Windows Embedded Compact Test Kit
The Windows Embedded Compact Test Kit (CTK) provides significant improvements to the user interface and the overall feature set when compared to the previous release known as Windows Embedded CE Test Kit (CETK).
The Windows Embedded CTK is a tool that you can use to test the functionality and performance of device drivers and related hardware for a Windows Embedded Compact device. The test tools in the CTK provide feedback on the functionality of your drivers, which can in turn be used to further enhance the reliability of your device. Additionally, more tests can be added to the CTK to test specific drivers.
The test kit also integrates the Graph Tool, which can convert supported performance test results into graphical charts.
The Windows Embedded CTK requires the following:
The Graph Tool requires the following:
The Windows Embedded CTK is a new application with the following key features:
Improved User Interface
The Windows Embedded Compact Test Kit (CTK) user interface (UI) consists of an integrated set of windows, tools, menus, toolbars, and other elements that allow you to execute, view and manage your Windows Embedded Compact tests in one place.
The user interface uses standard Windows interface functionality that resembles the Visual Studio UI. It displays multiple windows that show information and data pertinent to test cases.
Figure 1 - The Windows Embedded Compact Test Kit User Interface
The Windows Embedded Compact Test Kit window, shown in Figure 1, is made up of an icon toolbar at the top, a menu toolbar, four primary windows, and a status bar at the bottom of the window.
The four primary windows are as follows:
1. The Test pass display window in the upper left displays the current test pass and is divided into two parts:
2. The Test Case Explorer window in the upper right displays the following tabs:
3. The Properties window in the lower right is similar to the Properties windows in Visual Studio. It displays the properties of the currently selected test case, test pass, template, or connection. For more information, see Viewing Test Properties.
4. The Output window in the lower left displays debug messages from the CTK and from a test case as it runs.
How to export the user-created test cases and templates?
Unfortunately, there isn't an export function for user-created test cases or templates. A work around for the user-created test case would be for the user to create your own test pass template with the new test included. This and the test binary (if applicable) can then be copied that to another machine under the same paths.
The template can be copied from the user’s folder, default at: C:\Users\<user>\Compact Test Kit\.
For the user-created test cases, the user would also need to copy the binary file to the same path that was used when the test case was originally created.
