Coding4Fun: Interfacing with a Microsoft FingerPrint Reader
Here's a new Coding4Fun article I did on interfacing with your Microsoft FingerPrint Reader. I used the very easy GrFinger SDK from Griaule and I want to thank them for their help with my questions for this article. They've got a fine product that's very easy to code to and their drivers were rock solid for me. Check them out for if you're interfacing your .NET application to any FingerPrint reader, not just Microsoft's.
"In this installment of the "Some Assembly Required" column, Scott Hanselman creates a Family Fingerprint Manager using .NET 2.0 that interfaces with the Microsoft Fingerprint Reader and the GrFinger SDK from Griaule."
In the interest of preparedness, I figured we needed to get the family fingerprinted and to put those finger prints with my "Preparedness USB Getaway Key" and in the safety deposit box, so I created a family fingerprinter.
It's a pretty simple application, I save the fingerprints in an XML file for portability. Note the "auto next finger" feature, so you can fingerprint your friends and relatives just like the cops do. ;) Enjoy.
