FAILED TO LOAD RESOURCE Error When Installing Sony Ericsson PC Suite

Apparently, you can use WinRAR to extract the contents out of the exe file and it’ll give you a couple of setup files (32 and 64 bit setup files) and some dll’s. Once I did that, the error disappeared. I don’t really know how that would have affected anything in the first place, but then again, errors are generally bad…

For some reason when I tried installing this program using the 64 bit setup file, the installation would always fail. I guess I’ll stick with the 32 bit version.

I wonder if this technique can be applied to other exe files…

    Hi There,
    Thank you for this website. My P1i rear camera does not work, it is hanging infinetly at initialization. I tried service menu device test and Rear camera doesn’t show up at all.

    I want to try firmware reinstall but I need the software, With Sony P1i support taken off, I am not sure where to get the latest firmware or extract the firmware from my phone.

    The version in my phone is
    PDA software version: CXC162108 R6G04

    Phone software version: CXC 162037 R9K009

    Bluetooth software version: CXC162143 R1D

    CDA Version; CDA162024/73 R9A

    Please can some one let me know how to get the latest firmware for these so that I can try reflashing them.

    Another question:

    Please can you let me know where to get the camera parts for P1i.
