I have tried the Windows 8 version of Bioexcess from Lenovo on my V570. I was unable to get it to accept my login password. I downloaded the trial version from Bioexcess, and it worked, but registration costs $40. I have phoned Lenovo twice, and they don't seem to know as much as I have been able to figure out from internet searches. Unless Lenovo changes its policies, buying Bioexcess, or another third party application is your only option to get the fingerprint reader running.
