Windows Vista

Well, based on the previous information, I have systematized the installation process of Windows 7 64 bits in the CR11Z/R, starting from a clean install:

1.- Install ATI Graphics Driver, Memory Card Reader Writer (Texas Instruments) and Sony Firmware Extension Parser Device.

Windows Vista 64-bit drivers work fine on Windows 7. Unfortunately the link doesn't work anymore.
Instead, drivers can be downloaded from this VAIO Japanese page (go down to the bottom of the page and press the button to accept the End User License Agreement).

These are the files needed:

- EP0000152211 - Graphics (ATI)

- EP0000140008 - Memory Card Reader Writer (Texas Instruments)

- EP0000218293 - Sony Firmware Extension Parser Device

2.- Make FN keys and special keys work:

- Install Sony Shared Library "7UPG_Sony_Shared_Library_5.4U_5.4.0.05200." Restart the computer.

- Installing Event Service "7UPG_VAIO_Event _Service_5.0U_5.0.0.08040." Restart the computer.

After that, Fn keys will work.

- Install VAIO Power Management "7UPG_VAIO_Power_Management_4.0u_4.0.0.07060" > This is not necessary for the Fn keys, but I think it's ok to install it.

The files can be downloaded from the link given by SNIFFERdog (remember: VAIO : Sony Europe). These files are taken from our VAIO's big brother, CS11Z/R.

Finally, to make the webcam work: in the Device Manager, look for "USB Video Device" and update the driver pointing to "CR1_Drivers". This installs "Sony Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC6" and the webcam will work fine!
