Windows Biometric Framework - simple app for fingerprint scanner RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

       I am trying to create a simple fingerprint scanner application(using C#). I am using C++ libraries provided my Microsoft to perform this task. When I access winBioAcquireFocus method (while swiping the in built finger print scanner for hp laptop) provided by c++ libraries, it always returns "Access denied" error. I am logged on to  my system as an administrator.

    Has anyone come across this sort of issue and rectified it? If so, please let me know the solution for the same.
