Fingerprint Reader software - Website auto login - Windows XP software
Posted on 2008-10-08
Recently purchased a Dell Dimension laptop with a finger print reader and because this laptop was going into an XP environement it was "downgraded" to Windows XP also (at factory so arrived ready to go).
However the finger print software it was supplied with seems poor (Dell embassy software) nothing like the software I've had with other Dell's and in particular does not have the ability to set up auto login to Websites and Windows forms ( Very useful feature).
I know this is possible on an XP PC because I have also supplied Sony Vaio's downgraded to Windows XP that have fingerprint software that works on XP with website /windows forms login.
However I'm told by Dell I can't get the software for XP. Embassy is the only option and it does not support web form logins.
Is it possible for me to acheive what I want? Surely it must be possible to acheive this with the Dell I have even if I have have to buy alteranatve software.
Does anyone know if the fingerprint reader in my Dell dimension would work with alternative software and if so how can I obtain this alternaitve software (to work on XP)
Note: My personal Vista Dell says software from Upek when I click on about.
Thanks in advance.
