    While registering my hard token DSC, I keep getting a Windows Security error:
    “SMART CARD
    Select a smart card device
    ePass2003
    FT ePass2003Auto 0
    The smart card cannot perform the requested operation or operation requires a different smart card.”
    I have tried three separate computers and all browsers too. All drivers are updated.
    Please help.
