    Smart Card Reader driver problem


    Hello!
    So, I ended up here because I didn't know what else to do. I have a problem with my Smart Card Reader(ID-Card). Windows doesn't let me install drivers for it manually, neither did it install them automatically. It all happened after updating Windows to the Anniversary Update. I tried to reinstall drivers, "Repair My Computer" with Windows disk(which didn't work for some reason) and used USB 2.0 and 3.0 to test whether it's the port problem. Also, manual installation gave me an error: "This operation requires an interactive window station."
    Can anyone here help me? I need to use smart card reader every day, to be honest.

    Smart card reader causes force restart

    Here is my problem. I needed to log in to a website with a smart card, so I plugged in my smart card reader (I have installed and used it before).

    When I plugged in the smart card reader, none of the LEDs on the card reader were lighting up to indicate it was connected. Strange, but I decided to plug in my smart card and try to login to the website anyway.

    When I clicked "log in with smart card" on the site, Windows popped up a message saying my computer would be automatically restarted in 1 minute.

    This happened on all 3 of my computers at home (all fully-updated Windows 10), with 2 different smart card readers. Updating the smart card drivers and rebooting did not help - the issue still persists.

    Once (but not all the times it happened) I got a BSOD with error SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

    How should I go about fixing this issue?

    Can't find SD Card Reader in Device Manager

    Hi FriedMouse,

    I'm having the same problem. I just tried going into the Services application and manually starting the Smart Card and Smart Card Device..., but the SD card is still not recognized and there is still no SD card reader driver listed in Device Manager.

    Anyone have a solution?

    Smart Card Reader driver problem

    Are you sure you've got the right driver? Have you checked the manufacturers website yet? If there are no suitable drives you might want to try compatibility mode.

    I tried to install them in Safe Mode aswell and yes, I downloaded the drivers from the manufacturer's website.

    I'm not talking about safe mode, I'm talking about compatibility mode to emulate an older Windows environment (e.g. Windows 7). Have you tried that? In case you don't know where: Right click on the .exe > properties > compatibility.
