X200 - Windows 8 - Fingerprint Reader Driver - Can't get it to work.

Does anyone know where I can locate the driver for the fingerprint reader for the X200 that will work with Windows 8. I performed a fresh install, the fingerprint reader device is not recognized and the Lenovo drivers from support do not work. Device still not recognized.

 

Thanks,

 

Ed

Like another user recommended, I went to Dell website and downloaded the driver

 

Authentec AES2810, v.8.1.2.37, A03

 

R207052.exe

http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=3352V

Download it and extract the files witn Winrar ( Free Forever ) and then go to Device Manager and upgrade the driver manualy and choose the path were you extracted the files.

Enjoy!
