I had the same problem and had to use Digital Persona. It works fine without any issues. I reformatted with Win7, installed digital persona but it didn't work right away. Seems to me that I had to also install the Authentic software 2nd. Don't know why but it worked. There's a really good link with great instructions on this site at:
Follow the instructions for the fingerprint reader and it should work for you.
