Re: How to install latest DigitalPersona Personal version.

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Im currently using a HP dv6000series with windows 7 64bits. I have follow your instruction for updating the latest DigitalPersona software. However, the software itself still not being able to detect the fingerprint reader, why is that? it is working fine with the authentec login software. Is there something that i need to set up at the DigitalPersona software to pick up the fingerprint reader. Could you please instruct me how i can get my digitalpersona software to work.

Before You will install anything do what's written in below guide:

How to uninstall AuthenTec fingerprint software and driver

 

Only when You will do it You may install fingerprint driver and DigitalPersona from here.

Without this step it will not work for sure.
