Prompted to Insert Smart Card After Latest Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just updated to the latest Insider Preview and now Windows asks me to insert my smart card after logging in. I use a smart card for some web based applications but I cannot figure out why I am being prompted to insert it on Startup.

    Some solutions I found recommend turning off Smart Card plug-n-play but I hesitate to do so because I still need smart card functionality.

    Is there a way for me to determine what process triggers the request?

    Update the driver for the smart card reader to the latest version.

    Open Command Prompt as Admin and type the following command:

     net start certpropsvc, and then press ENTER.
