One company who manufactures FingerPrint sensors is ATMEL. Try visiting its website www.atmel.com. You can use either microcontrollers or your PC for your purpose. I think uC would be a good solution. Because spending $$$ in a computer just for fingerprint scanning is foolishness and wastage of resources unless you want to keep a large database of fingerprints. But even newly availabe Flash Memories can also do the job. For programming C or C++ is far better compared to VB. Vb can't access serial or parallel port directly (i.e. without any ActiveX).
