Sony PMB (Picture Motion Browser)

Applications you can't get to work (properly) in Windows Server 2008 R2.

It's kind of a pain to download PMB 5.2 -- the link on Sony's site is a "download manager" that basically verifies you have valid Sony camcorder hardware attached before downloading the real installer.

There are no drivers with PMB -- Sony camcorder appears as a regular disk drive in Windows.

Editing the MSI is not enough. I was able to do that so it would install. The problem is the accompanying setup.exe file actually does MORE once the MSI portion is complete. That "more" part is what has got me for now. Unfortunately there's no way for me to use setup.exe on Windows 2008 R2 because it has its own OS version validation built in. "Compatibilty mode" does not work with it.

Oh geez. Maybe its best to just roll with 4.2. It works. No hassle.

Yeah, that is an option...but I really like some of the changes they made in 5.2!

I think I'm going to end up just using Win 7 x64 as my desktop, and set up a separate Windows 2008 R2 server to run Backup Exec 2010. That was the primary driver for me to use R2 on my desktop: I use Backup Exec which works fine on XP but is not installable on Windows 7.

If this is known/posted elsewhere, my apologies.
-Server 2012 R2 (Build 9600)
-PMB 5.8.02.10270

Downloaded App Verifier: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=20028

Running PMB_5802.exe extracts to a folder. Opened install.exe in App Verifier. Select View > Property Window. Uncheck all Tests and check HighVersionLie. Properties > Product Type change to 1. Save. Run install.exe.

PMB 5.8.02.10270 installs and functions normally on Server 2012 R2. :P

I take no credit for this idea, simply extrapolated the ideas obtained from here: http://www.win2012workstation.com/tag/antivirus/ (avira specifically)

But this is for Vista 64-bit so im not entirely sure it will work on Server.

The Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service must be started in order for your camera device to work properly.

1. Open up command prompt, type in

sc config stisvc start= auto
sc start stisvc

I checked an WIA is already running and set to Automatic.
I have tried PMB 5.2 on Win 7 x64 and it works just fine. Very weird....

You want the "ApplicationVerifier.amd64.msi" one.


Now there are two versions, the 32-bit and 64-bit one. You installed a 64-bit driver, but is the program itself 32-bit or 64-bit? Check the application path, if its program files (x86) then its 32-bit obviously. Once you have located the file...

1. File > Add Application... select the .exe

2. Expand compatibility

3. Check the "highversionlie" checkbox

4. Right-click highversionlie and choose properties.

Put in the following:

Major Version: 6
Minor Version: 1
Build number: 7600

Minimize the application verifier program and try launching the program. This should trick the program into thinking its running it in windows 7, but thats only if it uses this method for validation. Worth a try, tell me if it works or not.


Uh oh, my bad. When I use my "customized" install of PMB 5.2, it fails exactly the same on Win7. I need to re-evaluate what the PMB 5.2 installer does and see if I can find another way to get it to run on Win 2008 R2.
