Fingerprint scanner not detected after Windows7 install

I've just upgraded my Dell Studio15 from Vista to 7 and it has stopped recognising the fingerprint scanner. I'm expecting to see Biometric Devices in the control panel (Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware & Sound -> Biometric Devices) but it is not listed and is not found during searches.

"Go check the Dell website for the new Windows 7 drivers, since the oficial release you should be able to find them (if it is supported)

Edit: though it already seems you have it installed ""properly"", since it is recognized, I still would recommend looking at official drivers. I downloaded mine last week and it did change a few things compared to Vista.

Edit: Direct link says Vista only..."
