Where to download previous driver releases for W500 (need AuthenTec fingerprint version 3.2.0.341)

2011-01-30, 1:17 AM

Hi Everyone,

after investigating an issue for hours it turned out, that i need an older version of the lenovo fingerprint package for W500 (AuthenTec AES2810) fingerprint reader.

 

Where can i download this driver:

Driver: Fingerprint Reader for W500 Model 4061W7P (AuthenTec AES2810)

OS: Windows 7, 64-bit

Language: EN

Driver Version: 3.2.0.341 (which is the only version supported by Sophos SafeGuard Easy 5.50.8 full disk encryption and Power On Authentication using fingerprint).

 

I could not find any download location for older driver versions.

Any help is highly appreciated.

 

Thank you guys!

Regards

Andrea

Try to go to device manager, select that particular hardware, properties and roll back driver. If possible. If not, you could ask sophos to support the new driver or ask Lenovo to e-mail you the old driver.

Best Regards
Peter

Hi Peter,

your suggestion is not an option for this issue, since i'm under time pressure and i know this will turn out to be a "who is responsible for the fix" problem.Lenovo or Sophos... Besinde this there's no rollback option, since i installed the system this week with the most recent drivers and fingerprint software.

 

Maybe i was not precise enough, its the AuthenTec Software Version 3.2.0.341 which i exctly need to get things working (this also includes the device driver but also other things which are recommended to enable biometric authentication). ThinkVantage System Update utility automatically selects the most recent software, which (in this case) will break biometric authentication.

 

Can anyone point me to a download URL where to get older Software releases. I was unable to find older releases for the fingerprint software.

 

Thanks and regards

Andrea
