Last night, Microsoft released a new Surface Camera driver called “Surface – System – 7/31/2007 12:00:00 AM - 1.0.75.1” which is intended to fix the Windows Hello problem introduced by the completely undocumented driver “Surface - System - 7/21/2017 12:00:00 AM - 1.0.65.1.” Many of you complained that, after installing the buggy driver, your Surface Pro 4 no longer supported Windows Hello.
