    I have download the QFE11 and try to install but encounter the error today.

    The error message is below:

    "Some features already installed on this computer are missing from the download setup package.

    Download the following features before retrying setup on this computer: OptionId.Netfx"

    I didn't see such problem if install QFE10.

    I guess the package of QFE11 isn't  completed, because i can't find the "Redistributable" folder in that.

    Would you help to check the package of QFE11 and try to install? Thanks.

    Hi Brain,

    Thanks for your response.

    I change the ISP and re-download it, the QFE 11 package is completed that include "Redistributable" folder.

    And the installation of QFE 11 package is OK.

    [DP WLK – Hot-Add – Device Test – Verify driver support for Hot-Add CPU]

    This test can't pass in QFE010 and QFE011. But it used to be pass in QFE007.

    According to help, I have checked devices of PC, that are all normal status.

    So, i have no idea what should i do this test can be passed.

    Does HCK work for IFS Minifilter drivers on Windows 8.1? HCK studio fails to find them using a Server 2012 controller and a Server 2012R2 test machine. Thanks.

    If you still have QFE 7 or 9 somewhere, go to : C:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.1Hardware Certification KitTestsamd64NTTESTBASETESTpnppnpcpu and copy all files (there are two files is incorrect for QFE11)

    And copy to same places at QFE 11: C:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.1Hardware Certification KitTestsamd64NTTESTBASETESTpnppnpcpu

    Rerun the test, it will pass or if you don't QFE 7 or 9 anymore, you can contact MSFT, they will send you the files, I've it with me if you need I can send to you.

  9. Gunwalder says:

    I would love a copy of those files.  I don't have older QFE's and I am having the same issues.



  10. viggi says:

    @GUNWalder – not even older controllers?

    Is there a 64 bit version of HCK API? I have an application that talks to an HSM. The HSM cryptographic provider is 64 bit. As a result, we have to compile the application also as a 64 bit exe. The libraries in E:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.1Hardware Certification KitStudio are 32 bit.
