Important Notes
  • Before installing this utility, you must first install the following Core Driver components in the order listed below:

    1. Sony Notebook Control Device Utility
    2. Sony Programmable I/O Control Device
    3. Sony Utility Dynamic Link Library
    4. Sony Extended BIOS Dynamic Link Library
    5. Sony Motion Eye Video Capture Device Driver

    If you have already installed these components on the computer (for another Microsoft® Windows® 2000 software update), it is not necessary to reinstall them.
  • Before installing Windows 2000 Professional or this update, please be sure to read Installing the Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Operating System. Most of Sony's Windows 2000 software updates require you to install Windows 2000 Professional in C:\WINNT. If Windows 2000 is not installed in this location, these updates will not install correctly.
  • Be sure to install the BIOS Version W2K04M0 Upgrade Utility (BIOS04M0.EXE) for Windows 2000 before installing this update.
  • Before installing this update, be sure the computer is running from AC power.
  • During the installation of this update, be sure that you are logged in as the Administrator or as a user with Administrative rights.
  • To ensure that no other program interferes with the installation, save all work and close all other programs. The Taskbar should be clear of applications before proceeding.
  • It is highly recommended to print out these instructions as a reference during the installation process.
