Thank you very much for your reply! You're suggestion worked and I can now see the results of the custom tests in hobbit. 

Now I have an additional hurdle. I need the report to be for a host name other than the name of the host that the test is being sent from. Is that possible with the externals functionality of bbwin?

> I've been debugging an issue and have had no success in resolving it. I'm using a custom test with BBWin 0.12 installed on Windows 2008 R2 server. My test leaves it's results in the designated tmp directory and BBWin picks up the results and deletes them from the folder but the results never get to the xymon server. The results do not show up as a column for the host nor do I get a ghost report. I find nothing in the server logs or the client logs to give my any help. The server is xymon 4.2.0 but I've also tried it against a xymon 4.2.3 instance that I have running. The usual client side tests (cpu, disk, etc) are reporting as expected so that indicates that the client is talking to the server. These tests are currently working properly on a Windows 2003 server (that is about to be taken out of service) with an older xymon client.

The format of your test needs to be like this:
