I have my fingerprintreader working for a couple of weeks. But a lot of times my laptop wakes up in a unlocked state without fingerprint or password. My screensaver says that it should resume with asking password.
So this is absolutely not a secure solution. PLEASE DELL DO YOUR JOB!!! release a new driver...
This is what worked for me with my M6600, and I suspect it will work with all. It is a summation and re-ordering of what has already been stated by JamiePUK
*Windows 8 requires uninstalling the Dell fingerprint software so these drivers may have already be deleted in which case you will see a warning in Device Manager for the Broadcom device.
1. Press <Windows key> + X and select Device Manager
2. Select Biometric Devices --> Control Vault w/Fingerprint Swipe Sensor
a. Right-Click and select uninstall
b. Check "Delete the driver software for this device"
c. Press "OK"
3. Select ControlVaultDevice --> "Dell ControlVault w/Fingerprint Swipe Sensor" and perform the procedures as in step 2.
1. Install Dell ControlVault Windows Biometric Framework Integrated : DELL_CONTROLVAULT-WINDOWS-BI_A00_R308326.exe http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/driverdetails?driverid=R308326
2. Install Fingerprint application Dell Personal 184.108.40.2060 - GM2.zip posted here: http://sdrv.ms/TLGCEc
4. After it boots up, before you log in, you will see a link about fingerprint scanning. Click the link and register register your fingerprints.
Caveat:: You must use the newly installed Digital Persona software to manage your fingerprints. The FMA, Finger Print Management Application available under "Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Biometric Devices" does not work under Windows 8 64. As someone observed earlier, not having an update for this application may be the only obstacle preventing Dell from providing Windows 8 support for this device.
I have just taken receipt of a Dell E6530, Win-7 Pro, 64 bit, i7 Quad, 8 gig of ram and I am having many of the same issues that I have seen for other users of Dell products when trying to enable the finger print reader. I need some assist with my 6530 and some assurances that the procedures cited above will work for me as it seems to have worked as noted above. I have the same messages noted by others indicating that no finger readers are found or that the Broadcom w/touch sensor is not installed. I have done everything else that I can at this time. The 6530 works fine in all other respects except for the finger print reader. Can you assist me with a viable solution to my problem?
I have been seeking an answer to my issues with my new Latitude 6530 regarding finger print reader problems and I have yet to see an answer that I feel applies to my situation and specific to type of configuration. So, here again is a re-statement of my problem:
I took receipt of a new E6530 Dell Latitude, Win-7 Pro, i7 QUAD, 8 gigs of ram, and I have not been able to get the finger print reader to enable or work on any level since I took receipt. I have seen a number of solutions posted within the forums, but I have not seen any that seem to apply correctly to my situation and system configuration. When I attempt to go into the Biometric application and start the process of enabling application I get the message no "finger print reader were found" or I will see a message that "no drivers for the Broadcom USH w/touch sensor are installed. I have done all of the normal trouble shooting ranging from reviewing the BIOS set up to insure enabled TPM, checking and updating drivers for all biometric devices, to uninstalling and re-installing drivers associated with biometric devices.
I need the correct solution to my problem related to the type system that I have and the configuration installed on this system. Can anyone help with my issues??????????????????
Just for everyone still having problems with the fingerprint reader on a Latitude E6520 or E6530 and Windows 8.
Dell has released an update on their site, here's how it worked for me:
(maybe some settings are named different, I've got a Duch installation)
- Download the ControlVault, vA10 (CV_Drv_Setup_8THGX_A10_64bit_ZPE.exe, www.dell.com/.../latitude-e6530)
- Install the setup. In my case, it asked for an firmware update. Download it at www.dell.com/.../latitude-e6530 , CV_Setup_46KM0_A28_ZPE.exe
Don't forget to turn off the TPM in the BIOS first.
Note that in my case the DOS installation failed, so I ended up with installing \firmware\ushcv64.exe .
- Reboot and start the Broadcom "Control Vault WBF"
- Set "Windows Biometric Framework" to "Enable"
- Open "biometric devices" in Control Panel (WIN + X, Control Panel)
- Click "Change Biometric settings" on the left
- Enable the biomatric functions and the option to logon in Windows (if you're in a domain network, don't forget that seperate option!"
- Click on "Use your fingerprint with Windows"
- Enroll your fingerprints
- Reboot your pc. At the logon screen, click "Logon options"
- Select the fingerprint option and enter your password.
From now on, you can logon to Windows using your fingerprint!
Don't forget to turn on TPM again!
Next project in line is single-sign-on, from the fingerprint authentication after the POST, directly to the Windows desktop...
If anyone has a good idea; let me know!
