Re: x200 fingerprint not working in windows 8.1 x64

Anyone out there got any info? In Device manager I can see Authentication Device/Authen Tec Inc. AES2810. The fact that Windows 8.1 detects the fingerprint sensor. Suggests the Windows OS Fingerprint software should integrate with it. The annoying thing is that Lenovo and Microsoft in their different ways are causing this problem.

Hi gordon_lee and Sjan!

 

There's no official Lenovo support for Windows 8 on the X200 Smiley Sad. Did you try the latest Lenovo Windows 8 Fingerprint Software for later and supported models?

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Thanks Bananaman,

 

I tired the software, although not for the X200, I had hoped the installed driver would hook up to the software, unfortunately it does not.

 

I still hope that a Windows updae might fix this, the sensor is detected by Windows, it is just the software that is not using the driver.

 

Microsoft decided to change this frmework and they should relly fix it in my opinion.

 

Cheers - Sjan

mmis34,thks a lot!
WBF3.4.4.1027.zip can support x200 fingerprint in win8.1.
after WBF3.4.4.1027.zip install, ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software for Windows 8.1 6.0.0.8102 can manage the x200 fingerprint in win8.1.
good !!

Re: x200 fingerprint not working in windows 8.1 x64

Hi, I got a a chance to try http://fichiers3.touslesdrivers.com/36153/WBF3.4.4.1027.zip which works fine, it added the option in Windows 8.1 to register fingerprints in Windows OS.

 

It installed AuthenTec WinBio FingerPrint Software 64bit. I did not need to install the ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software for Windows 8.1

 

I just boot up and swipe my finger to login to Win8.1 - Cheers for the link, the AuthenTec software works great.

yes, not need to install the ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software ,win8.1 can find the Fingerprint.
but if install the ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software,it can manage the Fingerprint better.
