How to switch "KSPROPERTY_CAMERACONTROL_EXTENDED_FACEAUTH_MODE" property into other values? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've tried to follow the "Windows Hello camera driver bring up guide" to switch the Face Authentication mode into KSCAMERA_EXTENDEDPROP_FACEAUTH_MODE_ALTERNATIVE_FRAME_ILLUMINATION .
    But I failed to invoke any KSPROPERTYSETID_ExtendedCameraControl via IKsControl::KsProperty. I always got the error code: 0x80070057 (Invalid argument).

    There is an article in this forum:

    It looks like a similar problem I encountered, but it was a 2015 discussion. Does Microsoft allow applications to issue KSPROPERTYSETID_ExtendedCameraControl now? Any updates to this issue?
    Or, KSPROPERTY_CAMERACONTROL_EXTENDED_FACEAUTH_MODE must be set by Windows Biometric Framework or WinRT MediaCapture?

    I couldn't find the sample code or API in these two frameworks to switch the face authentication mode...
    Could anyone help me? Any hints are very welcome!

    Thank you,
