      Description
      The Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT) is a module of Microsoft Windows Vista which measures various performance characteristics and capabilities of the hardware it is running on and reports them as a Windows Experience Index (WEI) score, a number between 1.0 and 7.9 for Windows 7. The WEI is due to increase its maximum score with future updates. The WEI includes five subscores: processor, memory, 2D graphics, 3D graphics, and disk; the basescore is equal to the lowest of the subscores.

      I’ve done some testing on this already, just haven’t had time to post my results yet. The problem you are going to run into is when you attempt to run a complete (“winsat.exe formal”) test it will fail on the media/video playback portion stating it does not have the required codecs to play back the HD mpeg2 and H.264 files. I have copied everything over from the Win7 x64 WindowsPerformance directory that it needs and this is where I am stuck. I have tried porting the codecs from Win7 as they are included there by default but so far have had no luck getting media player to recognize that they are installed. Simply registering the dll’s does not do it. I will post everything I have so far sometime soon though.

      You can use this WinSAT-like app.
      It works perfect, the only problem is that the free version of this app is limited to 32bit only (there are both 64bit and 32bit versions of this app in the installer, but 64bit doesn’t work in free version) and 1 CPU core.

      I understand that5 the formal tests don’t work. However, i worked around it by running each test separately. It may be more work, but once i ran winSAT, all the fancy aero effects worked properly.

      Runinng the “WinSAT formal” command using:

      • Windows Vista files (Max. rating of 5.9) will output a proper XML file.
      • Windows 7 files (Maximum rating of 7.9) will not output a proper XML file.

      In order to have the Windows 7 files output an XML file, you cannot use “winsat formal”, and you must add the switch, “-xml “, to the end of the command.

      I tried many other sites for information regarding this feature in Windows Server 2008, but you guys are the only ones who have ever come close. I hope we can have this feature working again. I will gladly write up a C# Install kit for this if we ever finish it.

      I merged your topic into this topic in the Wish List as WinSAT is used to calculate the Windows Experience Index (WEI).

      You can try to use my tool from the following topic to find out which registry keys are needed for the several files used by WinSAT.exe and the Performance Center: [localurl=viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1154:2fsy3u2x]Feedback – Class Enumerator[/localurl:2fsy3u2x]. Files that I can think of now are: PerfCenterCPL.dll, WinSAT.exe and WinSATAPI.dll but I’m sure there are more of these which you can find out using Sysinternals Process Monitor and/or Dependency Walker.

      Hope this gives you any clues! 🙂

      If we could get eMD(the readyboost service) running on R2, then we’d have one part of the problem fixed. That would leave the codecs not installed.

      The same test but ran on Server 2008. As you can see Server 2008 performs better on my computer than R2 at least according to this test.

      Something weird I just thought of. There was a guide on how to install the (uPnP?) service on Server 2003 by copying files from XP, and using the CDs from each. I know that the installation of services and features is different now with vista and windows 7, but could a similar process be implemented.

      Finally it works, but I don’t know exactly why.

      I tried everything found in the internet about winsat and played around in the registry, and I tried to install codecs. Nothing helped. It always stopped at:
      20004476 (4028) – commontestoutputstreams.h:0072: ERROR: Win32 exception thrown: traceanalysis.cpp @ 563 (VidPerf: loading perfcore): LoadLibraryW() failed (code 0x8007007e)

      So I focused on perf…
      In Win7 there are more Performance Event Logs, so I tried to integrate them in the Server Logs.
      After copy and reg of:
      -diagperf.dll
      -perftrack.dll
      -sdiagschd.dll

      I tried WinSAT again, and it WORKED.

      [attachment=0:8nkkv0yb]winsat.log[/attachment:8nkkv0yb]

      I lost much time with codecs.
      If someone wants to go deeper into this topic I can recommend:
      -Nirsoft InstalledCodec
      -Nirsoft Regscanner
      -DSGraphEdit
      -GraphStudio

      I’m also thinking of changing the Windows-Version-Info of the Server to make programs install that tell you that you have the wrong Operating System:
      e.g. Windows Media Feature Pack

      So far I found this:
      -version.dll
      -cimwin32.dll
      -cimwin32.mof

      I have packaged all of the required files for the Windows 7 WinSAT tool for R2. You download the WinSAT tool below:

      Primary: http://www.mediafire.com/?z7tr82qbk4tca0s

      Secondary: ftp://sealy1986.serveftp.com/Software/WinSATR2.zip

      USE the MEDIAFIRE link first, if it does not work, revert to FTP.

      My personal FTP is limited to 5 concurrent users and is slower of course but is always up so just in case MediaFire is down, use FTP.

      Instructions: Unzip the folder. Copy folder to desktop. Launch install.bat. Then navigate to your control panel > System and Security > Performance Information and Tools > and launch the assessment. It will fail a first time becaues it wasn’t ran properly this is because I copied the WinSAT folder from another machine. Ingore it and re-run it again. It will run. I know its not perfect right now, but atleast we got a working model now!

      Tommi – I was able to integrate these missing files into my prepackaged WinSAT folder and I was able to succesfully run the utility from the GUI. The thing is… from what I can see from the logs nothing has changed. The missing codec still is still logged…however I think that because Windows has the proper DLLs to log the failure the test continues with errors. In other words, because these 3 files you found were missing, the WinSAT tool catastrophically failed because of these missing dependencies. Atleast that is my best guess. Why else would the test output the same errors, but continue? What’s interesting is the graphics test score doesn’t really seem affected my Nvidia GT 240 still scored a 6.7 which is just about right. Thanks for your help man.

      Hello Halladayruls,

      nice to see that it works on your system too.

      About the media-files:
      WinSat tries to play .wmv, .mp4 and .mpg files. As far as I know the mpg-codec is only available in Win7 Home Premium, Enterprise and Ultimate editions. I copied my WinSat folder from Ultimate, but could not install the Windows-MPG-Codec so far. So either WinSat doesn’t try to play .mpg files on e.g. Home Basic or Professional (other winsat.prx?) or it tries to play them and logs the error as on the Server.
      I think those 3 dll’s have nothing to do with logging but with performance measures (perfcore – vidperf) and at least one of them was missing.

      About the codecs:
      After making a clean installation I was not able to play mpg on the server. I tried ATI-codec from an other PC on my NVidia Workstation. I also installed a TV-Tuner for 32-bit Vista. And I installed Shark-Win7-Codecs-32 and 64 bit. After playing around a bit I was able to watch mpg’s in both 32bit and 64bit mediaplayer, but WinSat was still not working.
      So I tried to copy the Win7-Ultimate-Codec files. With Installed-Codec I managed to show them, and only them, as installed.
      What makes it more difficult is that a Video can played with DirectShow, MediaFoundation and so on. If Windows Media Player can play a Video it is not said that WinSat is also able to play it.
      DSGraphEdit tells me now that the pins don’t match when I want to render a mpg-file. I think that those pins are stored in “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftDirectShowPreferred”, “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREClassesDirectShowMediaObjects”, “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREClassesMediaFoundation”, “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREClassesWow6432NodeMediaFoundation” and “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESonic”.
      I exported them and tried to import, but it partly failed due to “key in use or missing rights”. So I think that copying the codecs would involve searching for all the Classes (and files) in the Keys above and maybe offline-editing of the registry.

      Greetings, Tommi
