Unable to install or start phone software update components.

This error appears to be quite commmon when upgrading to Android 2.1, yet there seems nothing posted on fixing it.

Is there a directory on the PC or phone which is blocking this?

Anyone tried it on a second PC?

You can always try disabling any firewalls, anti virus apps etc. Also, are you behind proxy?

I had the same problem and uninstalling the McAfee antivirus seemed to correct it.  Just to note that I am also running XP in Vmware fusion so that does not seem to cause any issues.

Same here. I set up a PC from scratch. Brand new XP installation, no anti-virus, no firewall, nothing on it. It still would not install. Going spare.

What about your internet connection? Is it through proxy?

You can post your logs here on the forums by:

1. Right click the PC Companion icon in tray

2. Select "About PC Companion"

3. Select "Dump the logs to desktop"

Maybe someone can help you find the problem.

Re: Unable to install or start phone software update components.

For those guys who couldn't solve the problem,there is another way to update their phones.

you can use update service instead of pc companion.

Just get the installation file from sony ericsson official web site and install it on your pc then follow the instruction.

Its really easy.
