I´m using Safeboot version 5.1.7 and Windows XP SP3 and have a problem with msgina.dll as well as sbgina.dll.
After removing lenovo fingerprint login software I get the error message in a error window "The DLL for Loginsurface (msgina.dll) wasn`t loaded" before the login window is showing up (Safeboot screen -> Windows logo screen -> blue screen -> error window).
I used google to find a workaround and exchanged the msgina.dll (original version extracted from XP SP3), using the safe mode and the local administrator. That worked fine.
But now I´m in big trouble! The error message is still there while booting in normal mode. (Still msgina.dll wasn´t loaded). But additionally I see the same error in safe mode now.
I found some hints in this forum and wanted to start the safe mode to try out this hints, but after running the safe mode option I got the error message: "The DLL C:\...\SBGINA.DLL wasn´t loaded."
I imagine the IBM Gina keeps putting itself back in place, and not properly correcting the gina chain.
You can't use EEPC Windows Login options with a fingerprint gina (it can't put a finger on the reader for you), so if you want to use a fingerprint in Windows, you need to turn off the EEPC Windows Logon options.
if you want sso, then get rid of the IBM custom gina and use the standard Microsoft one instead.
It seems that I have to wait until monday. It is Friday evening in Germany and all my colleagues are out of office right now. Therefore it´s impossible for me to get access to the recovery folder in the EEPC download. Even if I would use your script, I have no "SBAdmin" on this computer.
I followed your instructions and now the login window pops up.
But now I have noticed that the Registry Key "GinaDLL" will be changed automatically to "C:\Programme\McAfee\Endpoint Encryption for PC\SBGina.DLL" during the startup of Windows. If I don´t manipulate the Registry Key again, I can´t login to windows after rebooting. Can you explain this behavior?
