The MORPHOKIT software has been designed to process these three steps:
fingerprint image acquisition; image processing and coding; and matching, either for Verification or Identification.
The software package is modular and therefore can be easily adapted to your specific environment.
You will find in the MORPHOKIT:
dynamic libraries (DLLs) and interface files (.h) to be used with your application through the MorphoKit API;
an application enabling easy configuration of the required DLLs that correspond to your hardware, by copying them in the windows directory;
the MorphoKit and MorphoScan programmer's and user's guides;
several demo applications illustrating the paper and live acquisitions, verification and identification features;
a sample application enabling immediate run of the biometric features. This demo program comes with the relevant source files written with Microsoft Visual C++, making it easy to understand how it works;
the drivers provided by the manufacturers of the video boards supported by the MorphoKit;
the tools needed for installiong licences in your system.
To get your licences, first run echoid.exe, send the locking code to Sagem. After You reveive your licence file, install it with InstallLicence.exe

Smart Card functions will be part of a future release of the mtpc library.

IMPORTANT: For no-US versions of Windows 2000, if you use a MATROX METEOR II acquisition card, it is necessary to run the service pack of MIL library:
After the installation of MIL library, from the your CD MORPHOKIT, DO NOT REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER.
From the directory : \Matrox\patch_mil610_win2000 of your CD, launch the application mil61_sp1a.exe to extract service pack. Then, launch the setup.exe application from "C:\MIL 6.1 SP1a Build-41 Official" and follow instructions. After a successfull installation of Morphokit, you can remove the directory
"C:\MIL 6.1 SP1a Build-41 Official".

Some devices need others DLLs, in addition to the Add_Drv and Add_Scan DLLs.
These DLLs are located in the same directory of the associated ADD_Drv or Add_Scan DLL.
MATROX Meteor II video boards
No additional DLL is required, because the Meteor DLLs are delivered by the installation of the Meteor Driver.
RICOH FS2 flatbed scanner
You should copy the 'Mphar1.dll', 'Scandrv.dll' and 'Scanner.ini' files in the same directory of Add_Scan (i.e. the Windows directory in usual case).
HP 6100 flatbed scanner
You should copy the 'HPScl32.dll' file in the same directory of Add_Scan (i.e. the Windows directory in usual case).
AGFA DuoScan T1200 flatbed scanner
For scanner Agfa DuoScan T1200, use dlls version Fotolook 3.50.00.
For scanner Agfa Arcus 1200, use dlls version Fotolook 3.50.01.
After the installation of the AGFA FotoLook application and drivers,
you should replace the 'Twain_32.dll' file located in the Windows directory.
