Question about Microsoft Fingerprint Reader Win Fingerprint Reader
I have Windows Vista. I downloaded and installed the most recent software of the Digital Persona Manager (2.1 version) from Microsoft's website and restarted the computer normally. After it has been fully installed, it will not let me register my fingerprint using the fingerprint registration wizard. When I try to manually select it, or touch the fingerprint reader to bring up the box to register the fingerprint, it says catastrophic error. How can I fix this? I am unable to use the fingerprint reader without being able to register my fingerprint.
If you turn data execution prevention off (cntrl panel, system, performance steeings buton then the DEP tab) it will work.
It is better to add only the programs (.exe) from the BIN folder of your C:\Program Files\DigitalPersona\bin folders since DEP is a good security measure against many types of attacks.
The single fact that Microsoft keeps that bug around can be seen as "you will never get security with Big Brother". It is really ugly and, as an electronic engineer I think Microsoft Monopoily as somethiung to do with NSA CIA MOSSAD and wars.
I am sorry to say what my most honest intuition tells me :)
