FIXED! Driver for fingerprint reader T510 Windows 10?

#1 Post by MikalE » Wed Aug 10, 2016 10:31 pm

Is anyone working on a driver for the fingerprint reader on these machines running Windows 10?

I was surprised to find out from the Lenovo website that there is no driver available for the T510 running Windows 10.

I guess I didn't do quite all of my homework. I didn't think it would be a big deal to get a driver for this.

Sooner or later ill try installing the fpr driver for my t500 running 10 (it's actually a z60m palmrest fpr) and see what happens. When i ran 7 i needed to use an older version for my fpr specifically, but anyway

I'd try installing the latest driver for 7 or 8.

I tried that. It didn't recognize it.

There is a biometric device listed in the device manager, but it is not a Lenovo labeled device. I'm not on that machine right now, but I'm going to work on it some more today along with getting the rest of the machine configured.

Everything else appears to be working correctly. The volume display is different, but at least it appears. I did not notice if I had a brightness display.

Cortana seems to be nothing more than a voice operated search engine using Bing. I may as well just type the search in manually for as accurate as it is. It's been voice trained so recognition is not the problem. It just doesn't seem too smart.

Well, I bought it to learn with and to play around on, not for any kind of serious work. I have the T500, another T510, and my main T520 system for those tasks.

One thing I'll give Win 10 is that it boots incredibly fast. Even faster than Win 7 on a SSD.

W10 is NOT booting fast, it is just another way of Micro$haft $hafting people... :evil:
Instead of booting, it is just waking up from hibernation!
When you THINK you switch off W10, all you do is put it to sleep!

It also boots fast. But I think that the biggest boost was Win7 to Win8, and not Win8 to Win10.

On my dual-boot system, 8.1 is much faster than 7 in all of the following: booting, shutting down, hibernating and resuming from hibernation.

I skipped a lot of OS's. Vista and 8, and 8.1 being just three.

I recently found out for both my X61 and my T500 that removal of the Lenovo fingerprint software magically allowed the FPR to start working for Windows logon. This after fighting the issue for months and months. Apparently the inbuilt Windows functionality is sufficient, at least for logon purposes. I don't use the FPR for anything else so I can't speak further.

I did finally get the fingerprint scanner up and running. Not without a heck of a lot of internet searching. I've been at this since around 9 this morning.

I deleted the device driver and re-booted the machine. It downloaded a driver that indicated that it was WBF Advanced (Windows Biometric Framework. However, the description of the driver indicated further installation was required. The problem is that although the driver is installed there is no associated GUI program to enter fingerprints and thus turn the device 'on'.

After a considerable amount of searching I found a UPEK driver update for the TouchChip Fingerprint Coprocessor (WBF Advanced Mode). This is located in the Microsoft Update Catalog here:http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/ ... 86e4ed687a

After this is downloaded you can open it and click on enroll.exe and this will open the GUI needed to enroll fingerprints. There is a quirk or a bug using this though. You are able to enroll only one fingerprint at a time. It will not recognize a second fingerprint even if you select the finger to enter. You must close the program and re-open it. It does save and record each of the previous prints you've entered.

After all of my fingerprints were entered, the Sign-In options menu now includes Windows Hello selection. After adding a PIN fingerprint sign in works as it should. Finally.

So if anyone else, or one of your clients is having a problem with a fingerprint scanner after a Windows 10 upgrade this should take care of it.
