Problem with GIDS-Applet

Postby Exkudor » Tue Nov 21, 2017 4:26 am


I have a question regarding some Javacards i have here for testing purposes. I have installed the GIDS-Applet via Global Platform Pro onto the card with gp.exe -install GIDSApplet.cap -default, initialized it with the OpenSC GIDS-Tool and the command "gids-tool --initialize". Then i try to install a certificate on the card - error, Windows says "Smartcard detected. For the process another smartcard is needed. Driver for smartcard not found"

Thanks in advance

Maybe you need a minidriver for the GIDS card. I made it to import keys from the PFX files onto the card, using the Gemalto MiniDriver Manager.
I checked his work only on Win 7 32bit. Source and driver are here: ... sp=sharing
