Re: Fingerprint Reader on Windows 2003 server

I got the Manager to install on Windows 2003 server... however, I still need
to press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and enter my password to get into the Server. The
only part that works perfect is everything once I'm logged in.

Is there a way to not have to ever type a password with Windows 2003 Server
using the Finger Print Reader? Be it for pay software, etc.

Thanks,
Danny
