When WHQL Receives a Submission
WHQL will acknowledge all Test Submissions within three days of when they receive the submission. If you send a test submission to WHQL and do not receive this confirmation e-mail, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with STATUS REQUEST in the Subject line. Please include the following information in the body of the message: the type of equipment, date shipped, and how to contact you if there are any questions.
Customers can check the WHQL Submission Status web page at http://www.microsoft.com/hwdq/hwtest/pages/status.asp for submission-related information during this time.
When your device or system completes WHQL processing, you will receive a Test Report that includes technical feedback on any problems that were found. If your device passes Windows Logo Program testing, you will also receive additional information, depending on the agreements you signed when you submitted your product for testing.
