Driver component mis-match. Exit is the only option

I have tried to use the Microsoft Finger PrintReader and I receive 2 errors

Error#1 "Driver component mis-match. Exit is the only option"
Usaer Console Error#2 "Cannot Open user record for editing because its locked. Restart your computer and try again "

I have uninstalled the Digital Persona 2.0 and reinstalled it twice. I have applied the registry changes as highlighted on microsoft.com/hardware, but the errors still persist to annoy the mess out of me.

SOURCE: Catastrophic Error when trying to register 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 :)

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. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.blogfeld.com/2009/10/microsoft-fingerprint-reader-windows-7.html">http://www.blogfeld.com/2009/10/microsoft-fingerprint-reader-windows-7.html</a>

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

Log on screens are not recognisable by finger print reader


ok.. please update your related drivers firstly.. but the actual trick is to go

Manage add-ons, and find your related add-on for Explorer (DigitalP in my case on my HP Laptop) and ENABLE it..

also right click My computer on your desktop, then click Manage,
then find and load Biomethric Authentication Service, under services.. (DPHost in my case)

i am almost positive in most cases, enabling your digital finger print reader on MANAGE ADD-ONs secction must help..
