NO PC stated (model name and full number)
NO OS stated, is this XP? must we beg you to get hard key facts like this>?
what are you attempting, ?
the Finger print reader has many features, which one are you attempting?

yes, it can work but only works on matching PC and matching OS.
the HP pages there warn you,.it only works on the OS sold with PC. (eg vista or w7) HP web site on your PC is clear, ever look there?
my HP 8540w , works perfectly with W7 but not w10 !
i can not use the reader nor the security package, ever.
But w10 is happy there , FP reader stuff removed.

HP will not revise these drivers and apps for W10 ever.
see my point? In my example case.
there are 2 parts, the FP reader, driver.
and the security package ( vastly huge and complex !)

i say why use it at all?
do you have secrets on your PC? (you 007 agent?) 008?
or your soon to be published book ? (huge value)
or engineering work/ cad/cam, etc.
or valuable art, (or music composer)
or you are CEO or FCO with sensitive data? (accountant?)
if no, then avoid that.
The reader is safe but not the security HP applications:
look in the registry at all that complexity, and risk for that.

you can use the reader to
block BIOS boots. dead.
block the windows, login page.
or block specific apps, or all 3.
is say don't do it, at all.


But all that works on mine 100% on w7 only.
it does work but is still risky.
other apps do not like it , etc.

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 :)

Unless it is plug and play (PnP) all software and drivers come on a CD with the hardware. you have not mentioned the brand and model. So, use the model and brand name to search for its drivers on the net.

I purchased a 4500 digital persona fingerprint reader but it came with no software. IM at a lost on what to do. I cant fint the software any place.


I am in the same boat as you. I downloaded the software from the DP website but their support sucks. It doesn't even say if its compatible with win7. I emailed their support group for a solution. I'll share their reply with you.

Hi,

Follow the below steps exactly (Step by Step) to install it and you shouldn't have a problem.

For Windows XP and Windows 7

1.) Install Driver delivered with the Reader. Do NOT install Integold Driver/SDK that might come with the Reader!
Do not allow Windows to search for Driver Updates on Microsoft, and refuse to use automatically downloaded Microsoft Driver!
2.) Update driver and Firmware with the latest downloads from Digital Persona Site:
http://www.digitalpersona.com/support/downloads/software-updates/reader-engine/
As of today, you should download and install the following packages:
dp00_02_004.zip
and
dp00_02_003.zip
3.) Download and install Free Digital Persona OneTouch for Windows SDK:
http://www.digitalpersona.com/embedded/sdk/one-touch-for-windows/

Important! Reboot Computer after each installation!


I hope this helps! Have a great day!


Best Regards,

James

How to use password instead of fingerprint to logon


How to disable fingerprint reader
In Windows, in the settings section of the Fingerprint Control Center, uncheck Replace windows logon with fingerprint protected logon. In the Fingerprint section uncheck the Power-On Security section if the user has fingerprints enrolled there. You do not need to uninstall the software unless you wish to.

DigitalPersona Personel Fingerprint reader not detected, HP Pavillion dv6706tx Vista 32, DigitalPersona Vers. 4.11.3805. All drivers up to date. In device manager cannot find Personal too. Any idea how to...


To install DP4.11 first uninstall all previous versions on your system and turn off authentec and biometric services in Windows Services so you can then delete the digital persona folder in Program Files (assuming dpagent was running) and uninstall fingerprint driver, then delete Fingerprint sensor folder in Program Files reboot and system will find and install fingerprint driver then double-click to execute and install DP4.11 setup program. (Note: all previous saved passwords for websites will still be listed in digital persona - you will not lose any passwords from your previous installation)
