change the ginadll reg key to point to msgina.dll
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.
But how do I change the reg key?
I can´t login to windows.
if the machine is not encrypted, just use the recovery console and go edit it with the command line registry editor.
Or, you could use a WinPE CD to do the same thing, if it's encrypted, you can even mount the drive with our recovery CD tools and go edit the registry still.
lots of options.
The hard drive is encrypted. :-(
Which recovery CD tools do you mean?
Do you have a link?
WinTech - it's documented in the recovery directory of your EEPC download. There's a manual etc telling you how to set it up with WinPE.
there's also a script on my blog that will do it for you (search for WinTech).
Thanks for your help.
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. :D
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?
you have windows logon options set in the machine policy, so it will install SBGina every time the machine syncs.
Get your administrator to change the policy for this machine to have no Windows Logon options, and the Gina won't be inserted.
Ok, I will ask my administrator.
Thank you very much for your help!!!
