    I am moving all my laptops in my org to Vista. We use Smartcards for authentication but I keep getting an error "The card supplied requires drivers that are not present on this system. Please try another card." I am using Gemplus GemPC400 smartcard reader card. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    You will need to install the appropriate cryptographic service provider (CSP) before you can use smart cards with Vista. Assuming you are using Cryptoflex 8k because you did not say, and they are some of the most common cards, unfortunately there is no CSP available for this card on Vista at this time. This blog post may also be of interest.
