Sorry, but I need more help :-( When I try to do software repair I got:
A network error occurred while downloading the software. Make sure you are connected to the Internet and try again later. Your device is unchanged.
126.96.36.199 / Windows 10 64 bit / Win32 / US / F5121 / 38.4.A.0.45
I paused antivirus and firewall, doesn't help. Maybe it try to reinstall 7.1.2?

It is fresh install just for this purpose (new laptop), so I don't think that reinstalling can help.
I try to do it in other machine/network environment later.

Then try, there is a choice somwhere, device not recognised.
That will do the trick.

I've seen some different opinions on here. On xperia x you go to the system heading then to software update. Swipe across to system update & download from there. It is a huge download & seems to have had some problems. I must be getting old, most of the people here are mentioning things I don't know about.

@schetz - So concept for xperia x is an experimental program that uses stock technology and it needs some type of uograde/update from Sony itself. Never heard of this until I googled it. Thanks for that though schetz I'm a total newbie & can only cover basics lol.

Seems it is not network problem, or Xperia Companion. Just it doesn't work.
Maybe exist posiblity to flash Oreo without unlocking device?

Just try again.
First backup with Xperia Companion.
With your battery charged for more than 80%
Phone switched on
Connect to computer
Start Xperia Companion
Choose Software repair
In the lower left corner you can check mark the option: My device cannot be detected or is a SmartWatch 3
Click next in the lower right corner
On the left choose Xperia Phone or tablet
In the lower right corner click Next
Agree that you have your Google account name & password and click next
(Even better: go back and delete your Google Account from your phone before you do the software repair. Once forgotten your phone will be blocked and you will have to go through a procedure at Google to re-acclaim your account on your phone which will take a few days built-in delay)
Either your phone will be detected or you will have to choose your phone yourself. (this is where I don't want to go further anymore because I don't want to reïnstall the lot)
If you get an error here then you should follow @schetz 's advice and use Flashtool.
