Windows Vista 64 Bit and Microsoft Fingerprint Reader RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know Microsoft monitors these threads. I have been following this discussion since day one. I have even posted my thoughts a couple of times.( I want to use the Fingerprint Reader on my keyboard!) I am informed of new threads by email. One day I clicked on the link in an email notice and received the following ...

     

    "This Forums has already been merged into another forum or deleted, please see the notification in Announcement Forums."

     

    I went seaching in forums under the thread title. I could not find it. I figured somehow they (MS) tied my screen name to a blacklist and I was no longer able to find or much less view the discussions. After my search, I still kept receiving email notices that posts to the original thread name were still being made. Today I used an alternate MSN login, and guess what I found.... the discussion and here I am again. Talk about dirty dealings.  Their time and efforts would be much better placed if they would finish and release the drivers instead of messing with readers of this discussion.

  • I wanna wake up this old request because I think it is not fair to let this old device running out of service.

    I read that Cross Match was buying Digital Persona and Digital Persona was not able to finish the Windows 7/xp 64bit driver. Now we had Windows 10 and the WBF Driver.

    I create an Change-Org Petition and hope for any sign:
    https://www.change.org/p/microsoft-microsoft-pls-make-your-fingerprint-reader-usable-under-windows-7-8-10

    Here is another, older one from Andrew H.:
    https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/Microsoft-Fingerprint-Reader/

    I wanna bring it partitial to run under Windows 10 32&64bit look at this great guy here:
