Hey just bought a sony and had the same prob, after looking its not to hard, just a quick edit to an .xml.

open the folder %AppData%\Sony Corporation\VAIO Gate and locate the file called VAIO Gate.xml.

Make a copy of this file so if you go wrong you can always restore the ori and start again.

Right click on it and click edit which should open the file in notepad.

Now copy the code i will paste after this, on a new line below into the doc after you find the first </Item>

n.b follow this word for word otherwise it wont work.
everything in between the *need to be replaced with what it tells you. when you have replaced the hints removed the star. When you finish there should be no stars in your code.

This is the code to pase in after the first </Item>

<Item Type="2" DisplayId="app.*first 4 letters of app*">
<DisplayString>*display name you will see in the gate app*</DisplayString>
<DisplayTip></DisplayTip>
<AppPath>*path to the .exe, e.g C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS4\flash.exe no need for any quote marks*</AppPath>
<SupportTouch>0</SupportTouch>
<SupportRemocon>0</SupportRemocon>
<WorkDirectry></WorkDirectry>
<Option></Option>
</Item>

thats it save the file, close the gate and reopen it and if you will see the new icons. You can then drag to arrange where you want them in the line.

Hi,

The application that you are referring to is VAIO Gate application. You can download and install the same from the Sony website. Here is the link. First uninstall the application completely from the computer and then install the application from the below link:

http://esupport.sony.com/CA/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VPCF120FD&upd_id=5706&os_id=45

Also, install the VAIO Gate Update to improve the application performance.

I try clicking on the application and it won't respond


Hello,

Start-->All Programs->Your application. If it works, create a new shortcut on desktop. If it does not work, the application has been uninstalled, or it folder has been displaced.

You can use Add/Remove program in control panel to verify if it is still installed.

To create shortcut, point mouse cursor in a free area, Right Click >>New>>Short Cut. Click the submenu. A create shortcut window appears and you use the browse button to travel to the application folder in Programs Files, and select the executable file (has an extension .exe) and click OK.

Hope it helps

I have a problem making a shortcut on my desktop for some of programs. They come up but when I click them, nothing happens.


How are you creating the shortcut? If you right click on your desktop and click on New -> Shortcut, then tell it where the actual program is located, it should work everytime. A simpler solution is to find the program in your start menu and simply right click and drag it onto the desktop then choose to create a shortcut here.
