The ACR38 was the most popular card reader in Belgium. The blue version became popular when the electronic ID card was introduced in Belgium. Later on a white version of the reader was made. Now its success is carried on by his successor, the ACR39U: same on the outside as the white version of the ACR38, but more powerful on the inside.
In order to be able to use our card readers, you first have to install 2 things, being the eID Software (Middleware) of the government and the drivers of the card reader. Underneath you will find a link to both.
Please note that these are not applications, therefore you won’t find any shortcuts after installation. Nevertheless when the installation of both the eID Software and the drivers has been successfully finished, you will be able to use your card reader on dedicated applications and websites.
The eID Software
You need to install this software when you would like to access government applications (My Minfin, Tax-on-web…) using your card reader/identity card.
* Normally the drivers are automatically installed by Windows Update
