Windows 7 Audio Logo Changes

November 13, 2009


The Windows® 7 Logo Program is designed to help third-party vendors deliver compatible and reliable systems, software, and hardware products. End users trust the logo as an assurance of compatibility and reliability.

This paper highlights changes to Windows 7 Audio Logo requirements and tests that impact driver and hardware implementations. It is a convenient reference for these changes and does not duplicate the official logo requirement publications. Audio hardware, system, device, and driver developers and testers should read this paper in the earliest stages of design to ensure that your audio solution works well on Windows 7.

This information applies to the Windows 7 operating system.

References and resources discussed here are listed at the end of this paper.
