    I had been using CAC card a few days ago and everything was fine. It wasn't until yesterday that I got a message:

    "Your smart card is blocked"

    I had installed McAffe security two days ago and thought that was the problem so I uninstalled thinking it would fix the error. Not sure how to get access once more.

    Connect a smart card

    Thank you Yasir; I read the content in the link provided; the problem I have now is not to ask for smart card when log on but to connect a smart card when update applications. Do you have a suggestion for that?

    Virtual Smart Card lock


    Our company uses Windows authorization and some other services using a virtual smart card. The problem is that the virtual smart card is blocked after 5 incorrect PIN entries. It is the smart card that is blocked, not the TPM. Tell me, is it possible to
    somehow increase the number of incorrect attempts to enter or unlock a smart card after a certain period of time?

    I know about unblocking with the PUK and PIN of the administrator.

    We have a domain infrastructure, we use Win Server 2019 + Win 10 Pro 2004
