Failing validation because of files I didn't install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just completed a test run with the Windows Server 2012 R2 validation tool, and got a failed result because of files that I did not add to the system.  For example:

    - C:\Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727_64\System.EnterpriseSe#\cddbfbbe3c56f35a705c89499cea9f2d\System.EnterpriseServices.Wrapper.dll came up as unsigned

    - C:\Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727_64\lc\660b0362319884cd7411250490c14033\lc.ni.exe flagged as not having a manifest

    - C:\Windows\asse mbly\NativeImag es_v2.0.50727_6 4\AxImp\5e5ffe9 19a5e2c7c8aca1e e4b6fb4953  flagged as not being installed (even though I did not explicitly install it)

    For the uninstall case, there are over 3700 changes showing, almost none of which are directly due to our application.  Should I just submit the failed test along with a waiver request, or is there another way to have the test pass validation?

  • Yes, you should submit the failed test along with a waiver request.

    1. Dependency on third party files are waived
    2. The uninstall case is a best practice and not mandatory toward certification.
