Do you know of any software that I could use to check if my fingerprint reader is not damaged?
Fingerprint sign-in stopped working like two+ months ago. When I tried to re-setup it in Windows it seems that the sensor senses something, because it seems it detects the first couple of times I touch the sensor, but it seems to fail to register subsequent touches and the setup process can’t complete.
Do you want people to help you or not? Its a standard troubleshooting process.
Let me treat you like a genius that you always deserve to be: Go code your own test software.
Sorry if this sounds offensive, but if someone goes out of their busy day and gives their time to help you out, the least thing you could do is to say “thank you”, or at least dont say anything at all. Anything less than that is just an asshole.
To be honest, I agree with Emin on that one. It’s not a forum fill a population of “unaware” people.
So it is offensive when a guy come and add a message only to read himself obviously. If you are not helping please, refrain yourself.
To avoid complete problematic interaction with windows, try first on a live Linux media like a live usb. There are several package to test your fingerprint sensor. If that doesn’t work you will have your answer between hardware/firmware problem and OS problem.
Since others have noted this same problem, I would first and since eve-tech is a mess for the duration of a human gestation now about mostly everything, I would clearly prioritize first the superficial troubleshooting (hardware problem) then only dive into OS systemic problems.
