Need to install BIOMETRIC DEVICE on T42 (NET framework??)

Hi, i need to install the driver and software for the fingerprint reader on my T42, I have a new install of XPsp3 from (legal) microsoft disk. i dont have the IBM restore disks.

 I have tried to install thishttp://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-4ZLNJB

thinkvantage access connection 5.84 (i think thats it).

 I have installed NET framework 4.0 and it wont install because it says I need to install NET framework 3.0 or higher.

I have checked under add or remove programs and NET framework is there.

Whats up?

Thanks!

You need .NET Framework 3.0 as well.

Confusingly, .NET Frameworks are independent with respect to major version numbers. i.e.) 4.0 and 3.0 are distinct and having 4.0 will not run 3.0 programs.

.net has new updates make sure your pc is updated.
.nonsence if you ask me with all this .everything.
complete pain in the neck but certin programs will only run on one and not the other and there been some new updates so make sure you run update.

xp had biometic surport so it should be fine if it were not for all this .net nonsence.
again make sure that the .net ver you need is updated there been a alot of updates.
