Unlike other hardware components which connect to the Universal Serial Bus interface of the host computer system which are automatically detected upon connection, the Covadis Caroline Smart Card Reader requires the installation of the manufacturer provided device driver before connecting the hardware component. This routine is necessary to allow the host computer system to correctly identify the attached device. It is entirely possible that the host machine may request for the installation of additional drivers once the smart card reader is already connected to the Universal Serial Bus interface port. The proprietary device driver for the Covadis Caroline Smart Card Reader is normally deployed in conjunction with a security kit which is installed in many sensitive enterprise environments like banks among others. The installation of the both the hardware and the software components are made easier with the launching of an installation wizard.
