Installing WKU ID Card Swiper Software


How do I install the software for a Mini DX3 card reader?


  • Windows 10
    • Mini DX3
    • Mini Serial SoftTools


WKU ITS does not support card swipers. If you have issues with an older Mini 600 ID Card Swiper we recommend purchasing a newer Mini DX3 ID Card Swiper. For additional support, please contact the device manufacturer here.
  1. Go to the following folder on the Shared Drive: S:\UNIVERSITY-WIDE-SHARED\ID Card Swiper Software\Mini DX3
  2. Copy the Mini DX3 folder to your Desktop.
  3. Run the setup.exe file in the Mini DX3 folder.
    Note: It may be necessary to right-click the file and select Run as Administrator if the installation fails the first time. 
  4. Mini Serial SoftTools should now be installed.
  5. Instructions for uploading card swipe data for sharing purposes.
