Windows Hardware Lab Kit (HLK) hangs on WFP Validation when trying to WFPLogo

Why is WFPLogo.exe hanging for the Validate WFP test?

I setup HLK 10 on Windows Server 2016 for controller and test server. I scheduled tasks for my WFP driver and the first two suites completed successfully. However, the WindowsFilteringPlatform_tests hands on Validated WFPUsage and it seems to be running:

WFPLogo.Exe -t "\ArchitecturalDesign\Validate.WFPUsage" -l

When I run this locally, the tool opens a file with a series of questions for me to fill out and save. I don't quite know how to configure my HLK studio project so it already has the information so they system doesn't halt.

From the documentation ( it seems that I should populate WFPLogo.Answer or WFPLogo.Info to avoid this problem. It is unclear to me how to get these to the test system as they are copied when the binaries are copied.

Am I supposed to alter the sql playlist or the default set of files installed by HLK on my controller?

This seems wrong, I'd expect to configure this in the project but I see no UI for this scenario and the document isn't as full on this topic I'd hope.

Am I missing a step on the HLK setup and project configuration?

    I may have a partial answer. On HLK controller the default files in

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Hardware Lab Kit\Tests




    need to be replace with your customized version. At least this seems to have worked in my case.

    turns out I had a flaw in my answers file "UseAnswerFile = 0" was the 2nd issue. I still don't know if changing the file contents beneath C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Hardware Lab Kit\Tests\amd64\nttest\NetTest\SecureNet\WFPTest and x86\nttest\NetTest\SecureNet\WFPTest is the best choice

    Found the final issue via a msdn post -

    The must equal the string value of the WFPLogo.Info's CompanyName.

    The provider.displayData.description must contain the string value of the WFPLogo.Info's ProductName.

    Once I brought those and in sync I could run and pass the tests.
