I am trying to incorporate a biometric fingerprint reader into a c# application. The dll's associated with the reader hardware are Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest, msvcp80.dll, msvcr80.dll and
id3CertisImage.dll. I think to be able to use the reader I need to add these files as references on the project, but this fails with message'...make sure file is accessible and is a valid assembly or com component.'. Therefore I think that I should register these dll's and then I would be able to add them as references. The biometric fingerprint reader I am using is a Certis V1.
