I created a package for Qt5 version. Let me know if you want to merge. Thanks.

Hi there,

I'd love it if you could add support for the Microsoft Type Cover 4 fingerprint reader to your roadmap. No rush obviously as it is a fairly new device, but I'm happy to provide any additional information you may need to assist you.

Not sure if this helps:
