Tip & How-To about Microsoft Fingerprint Reader

Microsoft fingerprint reader and windows 7

Users installing windows 7 on their pcs may have experienced a problem: it seems microsoft fingerprint reader is not compatible with windows 7 so and has been discontinued by microsoft. That means, no driver update. You can go on using your fingerprint reader simply clicking the link below and following the instructions. I used that trick several times and it always worked.

driver plz send it


The official driver can be found on the Microsoft Hardware website http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/downloads
However if you are trying to get the reader to work on Vista or Windows 7, it will not allow you to do this as they deem the reader as a security risk and can bypass the usual security of a typed password.
This can of course be worked around with a lot of work, but I do not advise doing this, however here is the link anyway: http://www.blogfeld.com/2009/10/microsoft-fingerprint-reader-windows-7.html

Is ony FIU 710 Puppy Fingerprint USB Biometric supported in Windows 7?


It looks like it is only compatible up to Windows 2000. Microsoft doesn't confirm that it will work.

This document pertains to the HP TouchSmart tm2-1000 Notebook PC series.

The fingerprint reader login window is not detected when the notebook resumes from a Standby, Hibernate, or powered off state. Additionally, a password cannot be entered because the flashing login window defaults the cursor to the start of the entry field.

To resolve this issue, download and install the latest Validity Fingerprint Sensor Driver for Microsoft Windows 7 .

Hi:
I fought the same thing with another fingerprint scanner, and even spent some quality time speaking with Micro Soft Technicians....It seems they are not really supportive of fingerprint scanners,And forget getting any support for Window 7, 64 Bit version. My fingerprint scanners were Microsoft brand, and still no 64 bit support...
