    Error 0x8000FFFF when trying to install Sony PC Companion


    Hi Guys,

    I have run into a problem when trying to reinstall Sony PC Companion to update my Xperia smartphone. I'm reinstalling because the usb drivers did not install properly the first time.

    I downloaded 2.10.174 from official sony support site and getting the error in the attached screenshot every time. I could not find any information on this error except that it is sometimes caused by corrupted registry values from a previous uninstall. So I used CCleaner to clear all PCC registry entries which did not work. Then I cleared them manually which also did not work. I have tried installing after disabling windows firewall and Avira antivirus.

    I am using Windows 8 64-bit OS.

    Please help me!

    Thanks
    Tamzeed.
