windows 7

I ran across this about a year ago. I had mine working during the beta process.

While attempting to install Microsoft Fingerprint Reader on Windows 7, I was surprised to find that, unlike all other hardware I tried to plug before, it failed to recognize and install the proper drivers. So I searched for the drivers and found that it was only available for Vista. After a manual install, another surprise: it wouldn't read my fingerprint. Crawling through some forums I read that it wouldn't work on a fresh Windows 7 install, only on systems that were upgraded from Vista.
So I set up the reader's executables to run in Windows Vista's compatibility mode and everything worked flawlessly. Here are the steps I took:
1. Click here to download the programs and install them.
2. Open Windows Explorer and head for the folder C:\Program Files\DigitalPersona\Bin
3. For each file below, click with the second button and choose Property. On the Compatibility tab, click on Change settings for all users, then on Run this program in compatibility mode for and select Windows Vista

Forgot Windows 7 Password : Can access with fingerprint though.
Basically, I had reasons to make really weird passwords a while back because someone knew my usual password habits. So I went with a totally different password to counter that. For the last 4 months or so I've been using my fingerprint to access my computer. Now, I want to use Safe Mode for a...
