Fingerprint reader help

by stan - 10/6/12 5:24 PM

I have an eikon solo fingerprint reader (model TCS5B) which works with the software that it came with. I am using windows 7 64bit.

However I want to now use it in other programs that can read and manipulate fingerprints. However, no other program seems to be able to detect the fingerprint reader. Example GrFinger among others. It can be found here (

Is this how this fingerprint reader is supposed to work, that is, not be able to work with other software? If not how can I get other programs to detect it.
