I installed PC Suite on 7100. If you didnt look under the covers you would think it is perfectly compatible as I haven't noticed any application issues.
Unfortunately, Event Viewer isnt as happy. It is continually generating "sidebySide" errors in event viewer. The details are very strange mentioning AMD64 architecture when I am running 32 bit windows on Intel.
Here is the actual message:
Activation context generation failed for "c:\program files\sony ericsson\sony ericsson pc suite\Drivers\DPInst64.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls,language="*",processorArchitecture="amd64",publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df",type="win 32",version="188.8.131.52" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.
I have read other posts where the "sidebyside" event viewer error is fixed by installing a missing c++ library? Here is the link:
Anyhow, I'm a bit hesitant to load that library on Windows 7. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
