Looks like Authentec gave up support for its devices after being acquired by Apple.
There is a piece of news that support will continue to be provided by DigitalPersonna, but I could not find anything on their site.

Anyway, see here: http://web.archive.org/web/20120726032850/http://support.authentec.com/Downloads/Windows/Drivers.aspx#LiveTabsContent38991 and decide what model you have and what driver you need, then do a google search for the archive name.

I tried on 1.6.0_package.zip and found it (for free) here: http://fichiers.touslesdrivers.com/34879/1.6.0_package.zip

PS: if you don't know the model for your reader, see here on how to identify: http://web.archive.org/web/20120822021351/http://support.authentec.com/KnowledgeBase/KBview/tabid/843/ArticleId/299/Identifying-your-Fingerprint-Sensor-Model.aspx

HTH,
Dan

• TouchStrip Sensor with USB interface based on chips TCS4A, TCS4B, TCS4C, TCS4E, TCS4K, TCS5B,
TCS5D

Depends on what software do you need. They had 2 different software packages:

1. for business: Protector Suite. It's no longer sold, but if you bought it and need the install kit you can contact Apple and get it.

2. personal: TrueSuite for Windows. You can still get it from HP/Lenovo site, as they used UPEK readers in some laptop models. It should work with all Authentec readers.

Thanks, again for the suggestion but..

I need the software for a Sony All-in-1 running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.  I have tried the Lenovo site, downloaded the software and during the installation process this message is didsplayed:

"This is no the correct TrueSuite installer for this computer. Please contact AuthenTec for the correct 32-bit or 64-bit installer."  

Lenovo drivers seem to be for internal fingerprint readers not external biometric readers .

If you use a 64-bit OS, you need a 64-bit install package. That's what that error is saying.
The link I provided as example was 32-bit.

One quick google search and lo' and behold, the 64-bit package: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS030585

PS: this is the software suite, not the drivers. You'll still need to install the drivers separately.

As I stated in my previous post this software is designed for internal not external biometric readers.

OK. Then keep searching for one that works with generic readers.

Or identify your particular reader and post it here, so I can try and dig up something specific.

LE: attached is the version 5.2.0.481 of AuthenTec TrueSuite. Rename from jpg to exe

PS: it will NOT install unless you already have your device connected and the drivers correctly installed.

When installing the software the error message displayed below was shown on my Desktop.  I give up. YOu earned the 500 points for persistence but I'm not wasting more time on this project.


Thanks,
