1. IntroductionWelcome to the Version 1.0 release of the Microsoft Smart Card Base Components. This release provides the necessary files needed to enable smart card aware application(s) or service provider(s) to communicate with a smart card through a reader attached to a PC and its corresponding device driver.
This software does not provide any smart card reader hardware or drivers. To obtain smart card readers, contact reader manufacturers directly and request their PC/SC compliant reader and drivers for Windows.
2. ComponentsThe following components are included in this version of the release.
For Windows NT:
For Windows 95/98:
The following support files may also be added to your system directory as necessary:
3. InstallationTo install the Microsoft Smart Card Base Components on a target machine, run SETUP.EXE from the root of disk 1 of the distribution medium. After installation of the Microsoft Smart Card Base Components and any smart card reader device driver(s), the machine must be rebooted.
This Setup utility installs smclib.sys to %WINDIR%\system32\drivers on both Windows 95 and Windows 98. This file is not used on Windows 95, and may be safely ignored or removed without affecting the operation of the system. It is required for correct operation on Windows 98.
4. UninstallTo uninstall the Microsoft Smart Card Base Components go to the Control Panel (under "Settings" on the Start menu) and start the "Add/Remove Programs" applet. Select "Microsoft Smart Card Base Components" from the list of programs displayed in the scroll box and then click the "Add/Remove" button. After uninstall of the Microsoft Smart Card Base Components and any smart card reader device driver(s), the machine must be rebooted.
The smclib.sys and/or smclib.vxd common libraries used by the smart card reader drivers are not removed during uninstall. This is because device drivers may still be installed in the system that depend on the smclib libraries to start and run. The smclib.sys and/or smclib.vxd files may be safely removed after all smart card reader device drivers have been removed.
The C Runtime and Microsoft Foundation Class files, msvcrt.dll and mfc42.dll, are not removed by the uninstall utility, since they are shared resources.
The install utility may replace your advpack.dll system file. The updated file is not removed by the uninstall utility.
