Working with Emulated eToken Virtual

Note: This feature is available on Windows only

Certain applications that work with smartcard readers require the eToken Virtual to emulate the action of the smartcard reader. To use eToken Virtual with such applications, you must use an emulated eToken Virtual.

Typically, the emulated eToken Virtual is locked to a Flash device.

By default, the emulated eToken Virtual cannot be locked to your computer’s hard drive, as this can cause a misfunction of the Windows logon. This occurs because the Windows logon process cannot deal with multiple smartcard readers. However, if you need to work from the hard drive, the system administrator can configure eToken PKI Client to support this.

It is important to disconnect the emulated eToken Virtual when you have finished the session, so the computer reverts to working with the default reader.
