Re: Fatal Error during installation of Xperia Companion

I'm doing the from memory without a PC right now... But 


Run an elevated Powershell 

Then type

Get-WMIObject Win32_Product | Format-Table IdentifyingNumber, Name, LocalPackage 

Try this too..

Get-WMIObject Win32_Product | Where-Object {$_.Name -eq "*sony*"} | Format-Table IdentifyingNumber, Name, LocalPackage 

Or use "xperia" instead of "sony"


Then match the identifying number to Xperia Companion 


Then run 


msiexec.exe /x {Identifying number}

Include the braces for the id, if you're using powershell, you can select highlight with the mouse and CTRL+C to copy, CTRL+P to paste

Unfortunately, this did not help me.
This problem persists more than two years already.
