I can't enable windows on simple pass

I have a new HP dv7 and simple pass is working for my wife and for website access for me.   I cannot get the Windows Logon to work for my user setting.   I unchecked "Enable Windows Logon", and then tried to check it again, however it is now locked me out to select that option.  

 

When I try to set up windows log on, it asks me to enter my Windows Password.  When I do, it states that is an incorrect password, however it is same password I use to manually sign on.

Re: I can't enable windows on simple pass

Hi,

 

Take a read of member Daniel_Potyrala's HP SimplePass guide. It should help.

 

Best regards,

Re: I can't enable windows on simple pass

I appreciate the suggestion, but that did not work either, and now neither me nor my wife can use HP Simple Pass to logon to Windows. Webiste access still works for both of us, but not the windows logon.

[SOLUTION]

I've had that problem and solved it.

 

You see that LOCK sign next to the settings?
It's called Set Up Windows Log On, press it.

Type your password.

Then check your settings (gear symbol), you should find that Windows Logon is now checked again.

^ Repeat everytime 'Windows Logon' is unchecked. ^_^

Went to settings and it will not allow me to check the "Enable Windows Logon" button

EEAmigo,

 

Are you using an Admin account? If not, it is possible that is the reason why it won't let you check that button.

Re: I can't enable windows on simple pass

That is my exact problem. I have uninstalled it and installed the new updated Simple Pass to no avail. Nothing has worked and the problem is still unresolved. Even the Geek Squad can't fix it.

Hello EEAmigo. I understand you are experiencing issues using SimplePass, on Windows 8.1. In order for this to work properly, all your Windows updates will have to be completed. I would try installing the latest version of SimplePas afterward, and see what your results are. You can find the latest version here: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp63001-63500/sp63474.exe

 

Once that is complete, it should work. However, if not, there is another potential solution. You could consider enabling Biometrics Logon Feature, that is presented in Windows 8.1. Here is some information on how to perform this task: http://blog.vtechsquad.com/2013/08/14/how-to-enable-biometrics-logon-feature-in-windows-8-1/

 

Please respond as soon as possible with your results. I will continue to research the issue in the meantime.
