Why would you load Windows 7 drivers in Vista compatibility mode? The link I posted shows your specific model Sony Vaio, all the drivers, software and updates for it including a Update Pack specifically for your machine to run Windows 7, suggest you download and update your machine first then the 2 camera files.

Also you stated that you recently upgraded from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7, you can't upgrade from a 32 bit OS to a 64 bit OS you would have had to have done a clean installation of the 64 bit, are you sure you loaded a 64 bit Windows 7? I don't know if Sony has OEM OS and if you did not use a Sony OEM dis, if this is needed, you may have other things haunt you down the road.
