    fingerprint sensor not reading


    hi,I am an Insider and did a reinstallation of Windows with the Dev. iso. Issue in Win. 10 and 11. Now, the fingerprint sensor does not read. No issues if I use a normal iso. Any fixes or should I reinstall with the normal iso?

    :)

    You can use the fingerprint sensor with any program that supports it. For now, as far as I am aware, the fingerprint sensor on a Windows PC is only usable for signing in. I'll be happy to be corrected.

    Let's hope that changes. I can use the fingerprint sensor on my Android phone to sign in to several apps.

  3. How to enable fingerprint sensor while in domain and linux active directory

    In my office we have a Linux based server (nethserver) which handles stuff like samba share, DHCP, and newly added: active directory (for our Windows clients) etc.

    Now because of the lack of security I decided to use the server as AD controller to enable domain user login on the Windows clients.

    So now I really want to use a fingerprint sensor for the colleges to login but it is greyed out in the account settings.

    So what is working:

    • Active Directory on Server
    • adding windows PC to domain
    • login as a domain user on windows mashine

    What I need to work:

    • fingerprint sensor login (windows hello maybe?)
    • I think PIN login is required for fingerprint login (?)

    What I have already tried:

    • in GPO allowed fingerprint sensor login (computer config AND user config (just to be sure) and Windows Hello, PIN login.

    I think I read somewehere that I HAVE TO use a Windows Server domain to enable Windows Hello for Business and so the PIN login or Fingerprint sensor.

    Does anyone know if there is a workaround to enable fingerprint reader for Windows clients in a domain?
