I just got a new hp 8440P EliteBook(Windows 7×64) and wanted to use fingerprint logon. To cut a long story short:

  1. Installed latest ProtectTools security manager v.5.1.1.744
    Result: ProtectTools is installed but no fingerprint options.
  2. Installed Validity Fingerprint Sensor Driver v.4.0.15.0
    Result: Fingerprint options are visible in ProtectTools and fingerprint enrolment is successful but no option at windows logon to unlock with fingerprint
  3. Un-installed ProtectTools v.5.1.1.744
  4. Installed ProtectTools v.5.0.4.669 (The version I have on my other Elitebook which works)
    Result: Windows logon now displays the swipe to logon option but when you swipe it throws an error: “the system cannot find the specified file“.
  5. Installed ProtectTools v.5.1.1.744 again over the top of v.5.0.4.669 which upgrades v.5.0.4.669 to v.5.1.1.744
    Result: Everything is working as it should!
