If you do NYSC registration for people or just for yourself and friends. The most daunting task in every NYSC registration is when you encounter difficulty getting past the fingerprint capture page. The problem is caused by mostly the JAVA package used in the computer or driver issues.

Previously there was a post on how to go  about installing the right JAVA and drivers to get past the fingerprint capture page, see LINK. If for some reason that method didn’t work for you or you find it inconvenient, well, there is another method, via Desktop Client. The Desktop client is a new alternative in capturing fingerprint data during NYSC registration. It’s a Windows (Winxp, Win7, Win8,…Win10) based NYSC application, which lets you capture fingerprint data. It does this by providing you with a menu for logging into the NYSC registration portal via the person’s email and password.

Using the fingerprint Desktop client during NYSC registration will help bypass all the unnecessary hassle that comes with settings up your PC to pass the dreaded fingerprint capture page. Download the NYSC fingerprint Desktop Client application now, See LINK.

    Hi, i am unable to proceed with my nysc registration due to the fact i cannot get my finger print done. When i open the nysc page, i get stucked at the finger print page. The 2 boxes for the left and right thumb come up but the finger print do not appear on the screen. I already downloaded RTE 64 bit machine for the digitalpersona 4500 fingerprint scanner and jre 8u60. I decided to download the NYSC biometric capture icon and that did not work either.

    1. I get your plight. Actually there are two ways to go about it. You can use the online method via web browser like mozilla, for this method to work you need JAVA installed on your PC. I presume, that’s what you meant, but, you need the right java app for your desktop. Check this post out: https://www.nibbleng.com/download-the-right-java-for-nysc-online-registration-issues/. If this persist, update your java app. The second method is via a desktop client, this requires a webcam and of course the fingerprint scanner. The second method doesn’t need all that Java config stuff to work.

    can this method be used to register for several other candidates, barring in mind that only one email address was used to log in?

    1. FK

      yes! @samuel. You can use this same method to register for multiple candidates. But, you would be required to enter each of their email. One unique email for one individual.

  7. TJ

    can this device be used for monthly clearance ?

    1. Yes. It is the same device that NYSC LI’s use for monthly clearance.

  8. have install the bio client but email required, which email should i use or must i register some where or is it the candidate mail?

    1. Yes. It is the candidate email used in the pre-registration @mr Christian

    Hi. I have installed all necessary driver or app needed for the fingerprint device. As a matter of fact, I’ve been using the digitalPersona scanner with my system for a while now for other things. The issue I’m having with this NYSC capture client is that, it’s just saying “Can’t initiate capture!”.
    I don’t know what else to do. The web cam part works when I use it for images, but the fingerprint isn’t working

    1. Try using Windows 7 and making fresh installation of everything.
