UPEK biometric software for Windows 7

UPEK, Inc. is the global leader in enterprise and consumer biometric fingerprint solutions. UPEK authentication hardware and software are integrated into laptops from the world's largest PC makers, as well as USB flash drives, external hard disk drives, and mobile phones from leading manufacturers. For more info, visit Welcome To UPEK - Security Made Simple.
UPEK is working closely with Microsoft to develop its biometric software alongside Windows 7 development. UPEK will support solutions embedded in future Windows 7-based notebooks, as well as within millions of existing UPEK enabled notebooks and Eikon USB peripherals that will support Windows 7. UPEK believes the Windows Biometric Framework will drive the adoption of fingerprint biometrics among Windows users and will increase the number of applications leveraging biometric technology. UPEK looks forward to working with interested Microsoft development partners to further extend the reach of biometrics in consumer and commercial applications.
Thanks to the close cooperation with Microsoft UPEK is able to provide the biometric software Preview version for download already today.
The package available on this page is the first UPEK application software supporting the new Microsoft Windows Biometric Framework introduced in Windows 7.
This Preview version is provided for users interested in evaluating the new Microsoft WBF technology.

This Preview version supports only a subset of UPEK fingerprint devices. Laptops with integrated fingerprint sensors based on TCS4 sensor only solution are not supported. The support will be added in the next version. All fingerprint readers and laptops with integrated fingerprint modules (based on TCD4x, TCD50) are supported. (All Eikon readers are supported).

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

My ASUS C90S works properly in Windows 7 with their original UPEK Vista driver installed in Vista compatibility mode. It works properly for the things I use it for: I log in with a finger swipe and use the Password Bank the same way.

windows 7
Try this

Download the latest upek software for VISTA via upek from the link above (will likely send you to the manufacturer of your laptop).
If you use firefox version 3 or later you will need to use the protector suite software since the oem software doesn't support firefox (even with the plugin)
when you restart the computer after you have installed the software, the icon we all missed will be back in the system tray. however when you 1st go to enroll a finder, it will tell you no device was found. Simply go into the device manager and uninstall the biometric driver. When asked if you want to remove ALL the software, say yes. Once finished, right click in the device manager and say scan for hardware changes. it will find the print reader, re-add the original windows 7 driver and thats it. you reboot and you're up and running. (just finished mine 5 minutes ago. working good)
