Windows 8.1 Fingerprint Reader Will Not Work With IE11

2013-10-20, 19:54 PM

After upgrading to Windows 8.1, I am having issues with Fingerprint Reader in Internet Explorer 11. I have upgraded to the latest Lenovo FPR software for Win 8.1 (6.0.0.8102) which has not helped.

 

FPR works fine to log-on into Windows 8.1.

 

When I try to activate the FPR in the LastPass Vault (IE11), I get an error message for a missing file - BIOCPL.DLL. I noticed that this file is present in the System32 directory for Windows 8 but it does not exist in Windows 8.1.

I copied biocpl.dll to the Win 8.1 System32 directory but it still doesn't work.

 

Any ideas??

Sounds to me like you are going to need an update to LastPass that is compatible with Windows 8.1.

BIOCPL.dll is the OS component that implements the Biometric Control Panel on Win7/Win8.  But Microsoft moved all the Biometrics stuff from desktop into metro, in Win8.1.  That's why this file no longer exists in the OS on Win8.1.  Sorry to say, I don't think there is any possible solution to this problem other than asking the LastPass people for a new version.

Hi DAF,

My password manager is LastPass (v2.5) not Lenovo's.

 

I think the problem is with Win 8.1/IE11 and the FPR. It seems like it was a significant change from Win 8/IE10.

 

Thanks!

Yes, I am running LP v2.5. and have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Lenovo's FPR v6.0.0.8102.

 

In the end, I have made the decision to bring back my Win 8 image which was working perfectly.

Besides this FPR issue, I also could not run my Antimalware (Webroot) and the wireless adapter kept disconnecting on me. Had several IE11 crashes too.

 

I guess I could not resist the "new car smell" of Win 8.1.

 

I will wait a few months for the bugs to clear before I try again.

 

Thanks!

Thanks!

 

I have contacted LastPass support about this and will wait for a solution.

 

In the meantime I have reverted back to Windows 8.
