As far as galaxy expands – everyone knows that Dell Data Protection does not like to work with Windows 10, so you cannot use biometric features like fingerprint or smartcard reader tho. But there’s a method for this:

1. Download Dell Data Protection Security Tools (newest):
2. Download Dell ControlVault Firmware package (newest):
3. Download Dell ControlVault Win10 Driver:
4. Install Dell Data Protection Security Tools (normal wizard installation)
5. Extract Dell ControlVault Firmware and DellControlVault Win10 Driver
6. Go to folder: C:\DELL\Drivers\P5T4G and start/install CVHCI64.msi
7. Go to folder: C:\DELL\Drivers\X4KKD\ControlVault_Setup_X4KKD_A00\firmware and start ushupgrade.exe (FIRMWARE UPDATE!)
8. If 7. gives you error or do nothing go to folder: C:\DELL\Drivers\X4KKD\ControlVault_Setup_X4KKD_A00\WinPE64 and start wpeushupgrade64.exe
9. Reboot the computer
10. Login with password and start DPD Console, from there: Enrollments, and set up your fingers by swiping them 4 times (please select at least two fingers or a dick – for better security purposes)
11. Reboot the computer and swipe on the login screen… voila.

For Domain Users:
1. Ask System Administrator to set up GPO features:
2. Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Biometrics: Allow domain users to log on using biometrics
3. Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Biometrics: Allow the use of biometrics
4. Computer Confguration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy: Turn off Local Group Policy objects processing

    Installed the “Dell Data Protection Security Tools” rebooted and now locked out… password no longer works. yes, I am sure it is the right password.. Any ideas on how to get back in? Latitude E6530. Windows 10. Thanks

    Hi Bill. I’ve got a similiar situation at the first time. I think the problem relies in the next steps which if aren’t installed – it will block the station. I’ve recovered the login screen from Safe Mode or from Boot Options / Hirens boot editor.

    • Bill says:

      Thanks so much for the quick reply. Yes, I rebooted… who knew… anyway i will try your suggestions. is the boot options/hirens boot editor a program to download and boot from or is it a win 10 thing. i will search also. Thanks again

    • Bill says:

      I was able to get into the guys account and reset the password. had booted with hirens and used the password reset but the microsoft account was not shown. i removed all passwords from all accounts shown but was dtill not able to get past the microsoft account login that way.

    I can’t install Dell Data Protection Security Tools .. it says “A pending file rename operation exists. A reboot of the machine is required before continuing, The installation will now abort!”

    I couldn’t fix this with Regedit.exe

  7. tturba says:

    Hello, have you tried clearing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations? If not – try this and use CCleaner to clear all the registry junk generated by installer.

    Long after the trouble was the best solution that I have mentioned steps
    thank you very much

    I have one issue that the installation of DDPS fails because of “conflicting Anti-malware detected: avast! Antivirus”, and it looks like I’m required to uninstall it.
    Does anybody know any way to work around the unwanted option to uninstall avast! Antivirus?

  10. tturba says:

    Hello, you can try to add an exception for DDPS exe in Avast probably not to scan it. But I think the best method is to deinstall it for the purpose of configuration and after all – install it once again.

    After a recent Windows 10 Anniversary 1607 update, my E6530 won’t shutdown or reboot properly most times. I get a bugcheck:

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007e (0xffffffff80000003, 0xfffff803a65cae60, 0xffffd280a9934388, 0xffffd280a9933bb0).

    This has to do with “Wdf01000.sys” of the “Windows Driver Foundation” service in Windows. I have done some testing and the ControlVault fingerprint “Biometric” and “ControlVault” devices” appear to be linked to the issue. If I disable them, then my laptop shutdown and reboots return to normal.

    Any ideas?

    I’ve got similiar problem with O2MicroSD Card Controller. I’ve installed driver from Dell webpage and problem vanished.

    • DaCHeF says:

      Is this on an E6530? If so, what driver did you install? Perhaps mine isn’t linked to the fingerprint reader as my testing seems to indicate.

      • DaCHeF says:

        I tried “DRVR_Chipset_O2Micro_A04-54WK9_setup_ZPE.exe” for the O2Micro SD driver. I had several successful reboots, but ended up getting the same BSoD in the end. If you have a different driver in mind, please let me know. I’m not sure where to do from here!

  13. DaCHeF says:

    Anyone? I’m stuck… I can’t restart, shutdown, or sleep without a “silent” BSoD (black screen where power stays on). I see the bugcheck in the event logs after restart.

    • DaCHeF says:

      I fixed my issue by completely stripping all Broadcom/ControlVault-related files, folders, and registry entries. I made certain not to remove BT-related stuff, but everything else went. It looks like the ControlVault Host Components Installer was removed several times previously, but there were files and services still on the laptop. Cleaning all of this out, and reinstalling the 11/2016 drivers and firmware, seem to have fixed the issue (I flashed the firmware just for good measure). While I was at it, I installed the new version of DDP from 12/2016. All’s well.
