Fingerprint scanner on UX - Touchchip driver

Postby tomn » Tue Mar 22, 2016 20:43

Hi All,

Found out that the latest Windows 7 driver for UX touchchip no longer works, as Authentec has been bought by Apple and is no more, if you happen to re-install the driver or tried to do a finger print update/manage, it will send you to a non-existent page.

You will need to install this driver to get your fingerprint scanner working again:

Select the first download link (Win 7 7.77MB size) and install it, your fingerprint scanner will work again.

Hope this helps as it stumped me for a few hours....

Thanks tomn, handy if I reinstall windows 7 on my UX again. Still quite content with Ubuntu 12.04 which also can utilize the Authentec finger print sensor.
