    I'm looking for the CSP for Vista. Our Sicrpt or Axalto smartcards are
    working (hardware), but I'm still missing the middleware (CSP). With 2003 or
    XP our smartcards are working perfectly, because of the OS included CSP and
    for 2000 there is a MS download.

    any ideas?

    Microsoft has defined a new CSP model - the so called Microsoft Base Smart
    Card CSP working with dedicated card modules. This model will be part of
    Windows Vista; for Windows XP Microsoft offers a download at

    Thank you very much.

  2. You must contact Sicrypt and gemalto regarding support
    on Vista for the previous smart cards. They would ahve
    to provide you with a CSP to work with these cards (they
    are ancient cards to be quite honest).

    For the Base CSP, you will need cards that support the
    base CSP model. This link provides contact information
    for acquiring the Gemalto .NET cards.

    You need to contact your card vendor for updated middleware that will work
    with Vista.
