There is something in Windows called Compatibility Mode, which means you can run a program installed on Windows Vista as if you were running it on a Windows XP computer.
To do that please locate the executable for the application you are trying to run. Right-click it and select Properties.
Click on the Compatibility tab and tick the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select Windows XP from the drop-down.
Click Apply and OK.
You only have to do it for the executable program you are going to use.
Once you click Apply, this will set and save the Compatibility Mode to Windows XP so next time you use the software you don't need to repeat these steps again. It should run in Windows XP mode until you change the Compatibility mode again.
Ok. Please uninstall the software from your computer.
Insert the installation disk on the CD drive.
Go to My Computer and right-click the CD Drive unit (ie: E:\). Select the option to Explore the contents of the CD.
Select the executable file (ie: setup.exe) and right-click on it. Select the option to Run As Administrator and install the application.
Now repeat the same steps I mentioned in my previous post to run the program on Windows XP compatibility mode.
Please let me know if you still get the same error message.
Thanks for the update.
Are you trying to install the Pixela Image mixer on a Windows Vista computer? Or is it the camera driver that is not compatible with Windows Vista?
Thanks. In that case you can download the Pixela Image Mixer software for Windows Vista from their website:
This should work with your camera.
Thanks. You can download a compatible driver for your Windows Vista computer from the following website:
As for the ImageMixer software I had a look on the Pixela website but unfortunately they haven't got any version available for Windows Vista. You will have to use an alternative software such as Windows Movie Maker.
sorry I have not been in touch before, all that info was unfortunately no good. For info purposes only I emailed Sony and the only way we can achieve any download is with an i link as windows vista and windows 7 is not compatible with Sony Camcorders over three or more years of age.using usb connections. My tower does not have the port for a i link so we are at an empasse.
Sorry you could not sort the problem but it may help some-one else.
Glad to hear you sorted the problem.
And thanks for the update.
