Fingerprint Reader Not working with Win7

I used to use the Fingerprint Reader to login into my account, after installing Win7 (from Vista), finger-swipping is not working or not found as a device.

Hi dinomon, Welcome to SF,

Have you install proper drivers for your Finger Print Reader device. If not go to their website. Download the Lastest drives for Windows 7 then install it. See whether it works or not.

P.S. Please fill the System spec so we know what are we dealing with.

Hope this helps,
Captain
