  1. .simulateEidResponse (hide it using css in production mode)
  2. #txtNationalNumber

  4. optional, if you are not keeping these than you have to modify .simulateEidResponse click event accordingly.

Some developers contacted me that it is now working with them even trying many time, I have updated zip folder and also added EIDA_SDKSetup_V2.8.1.exe
I hope installing this app will install all required dlls and other dependancies. so request those friend developers to install this also, they might get out of the issue.
