Re: Fatal error when downloading Xperia companion.

We have the same problem and i have already reported this. Still no news yet. We just have to wait. For the meantime use the old PC companion.

Re: Fatal error when downloading Xperia companion.

sorry what do you mean elaborate?

 

When downloading the programs A error messge pops up as Fatal error, those are the logs that come with it.

 

Then it closes down and will not open.

 

I've tried both installing the software from my phone and from the website.

 

The only other thing I could give you for information is a picture, but it's the same as posted in the forums already.

Re: Fatal Error during installation of Xperia Companion

@ka81 you can download the Pc companion from lower z series in google. You can search for it. I had saved one old PC Companion myself since there are still no update on the fix on the XC installer.

Re: Fatal Error during installation of Xperia Companion

Is there any news on this issue? I bought a Z5 Compact and want to apply an update, but I get the same error. I use Windows 7 Ultimate.

Re: Fatal Error during installation of Xperia Companion

@sll Can you try disabling your PC's firewall temporarily and run the installation for Xperia Companion while it is disabled?

Re: Fatal Error during installation of Xperia Companion

I played around with the firewall and anti-virus settings and somehow I managed to install the program. So thanks for the advice, it worked!

Re: Fatal Error during installation of Xperia Companion

After I downloaded the Xperia Companion installer from sonymobile.com, it would not install.

Error message was 0x80070643c.

It looks for a file, serviceinstaller.msi on an Xperia Companion "Installation CD-ROM #1", which I do not have. I'm running Windows 10.0.16299. All Windows 10 updates are installed. After clicking "cancel", I get the message that the old version could not be removed. (I don't have an old version installed).
