Re: SimplePass Fix for Windows 8?

Although I am clearly on-line, "Registration" continues to provide a pop-up sugesting that I cannot complete registration and check internet connection.

I uninstalled the fingerprint driver and installed this:

It`s not as complete as the HP software, but it works for me!

Re: SimplePass Fix for Windows 8?

Well here's what worked for my hp pavilion dv6 after i upgraded to windows 8 pro.
-Use this driver h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=uk&lc=en&dlc=en&softwareitem=ob-112146-1 if it doesn't install completely, run it in windows 7 compactability. (go to properties, click compactability). Make sure it installs
-Then you can use this hp simple pass
h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-117897-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=4132&product=5273547&sw_lang
If you system still doesn't recorgnise this, go to drivers, uninstall biometries and install the driver again.
Make sure you restart after every install.
Good-luck

Re: SimplePass Fix for Windows 8?

I found that accidentally leaving an SD card in the built-in card reader of my Envy 17 laptop prevented BIOS detection of my fingerprint reader.  -- The SimplePass software can't work with a fingerprint reader that it can't see. 

 

For me, all was fixed once I rebooted with the SD card removed.

Re: SimplePass Fix for Windows 8?

Cannot register.  Program shuts me down when I get to about 93% done.  Says it looks like I am having trouble. I am.  What is the solution?
