Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD Computers & Internet
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.

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.
