    Hello,
    I just installed a clean win 8 pro - 64 Bit Windows Version. I want to install the vaio control Center, but the installer doesn't complete. After loading all necessary Files it says, that there is already a newer Version of the controll Center installed. Then the installer aborts. Had somebody had same Problems or some Hints for an solution?

    Thanks
    Antiheld

    Hey i fixed it. First I must install the Hotkey Utilities from the sony Support. You although need Sony "Shared Libary" and "Sony Firmware Extension Parser Device". Before installing those, go to your "C:\Users\*Your Username*\AppData\Local\Temp" and delete all Content inside. Then start the Installation of "Shared Libary" and "Sony Firmware Extension Parser Device". If you look at your devicemanager, then there should be 2 unkown devices. Just update the Drivers and select that you want to choose the Folder and choose "C:\Users\*Your Username*\AppData\Local\Temp".

    After that you can install the vaio control Center. if that doesn't work try to run the Vaio control Center as Win 7 application. It worked for me :)

    good luck
