Click "Start" and point to the "All Programs" entry. Click the "DigitalPersona Personal" entry.

Step 2

Double-click the "Fingerprint Enrollment Wizard" option.

Step 3

Click "Next" in the wizard interface that opens. Follow the instructions displayed by the wizard and press your finger to the reader when prompted. Click "Close" once your fingerprints are successfully entered to close the interface.

Tip

  • HP recommends at least two fingerprints be entered into the reader's utility.
