I purchased a fingerprint reader and I can not get the software to work. The
device installs and is recognized but it will not register the prints. I have
reinstalled with nothing running in the background and also unplugged all usb
devices but I still get the error message "

User Console
Error Catastrophic failure Suspect installation error.

I am running XP Pro with a SATA raid and also an IDE array. I have 1 gb of
ram and 900 gbs of hard drive space.
This divice works on 3 other machines but not the one I want it to work on.
Thanks ranchercliff

And what does the manufacturer of the software have to say about their
product's problems?

If the same device runs on all the other computers I would suspect the
USB port or more likely USB drivers. Try another USB port or even a
PCI USB card but first check if there are other drivers for your built
in ports.

BTW, I have one computer with new ASUS MB that will crash when I plug
an external HDD into one of the ports, but not another (both 2.0 with
same drivers!)
