Sony Picture package Will Not install on PC

Just bought a new DSC-w7 camera and for some reason the Picture Package Software will not load on my PC. It will load on my wife's old Dell Computer. What happens is that it starts the install and gets to the point of creating the program subdirectory and then just stops. It does install the USB driver without a problem. Going through the CD I got the Image Mixer software to load by manually executing the setup program for it, but that is as far as I can go. Support was no help and said that if it works on one computer, Then it must be my computer and i should go to Manufacture. PC is a Shuttle XPC with AMD Athalon Processor 1GB ram and 160GB drive. XP Professional and SP2 loaded. Anyone know what I could do to get the Picture Package software loaded? Thanx

I recently bought a DVD403 Handycam which come with Picture Package 1.8. Installer falls over right after you hit the final ''Install''button (after its gathered all the parameters''. Called the support line. They took me through a bunch of simple diagnostics (disk space, processor speed, whatever). Then they told me that this was a reported and repeatable problem with installing on XP Pro and that ''the problem has been pushed back to Japan for resolution''. Also took my email address and promised to contact me with the fix when it was available. No timings were forthcoming on this when I asked. Probably worth you doing the same thing. Number is on www.ppackage.com.

It's not something I own, but I have had some luck disabling DEP in XP. Look up XP DISABLE DEP on google.com There can be many other reasons such as spyware damage, firewalls and more that are "in the way." Another poster found Roxio interfered with Kodak software installs. Finding the toxic combo is always fun.

Cybershot DSC- W1

So many video/picture programs will work with this camera. I use it with both Vista and XP OS. I never loaded software on Vista PC. I just use the "Start/Computer/Disk F (on my PC)" I just hook up the USB cable to camera and PC and then click on Disk F. You should then see the picture files and you can click and drag these files to a photo folder that you designate.

Macromedia Flash

I am wrting in regards to my Sony Handycam DCR-HC36. I am having problems with the Picture Package software when I try to load my video. When I try to transfer my videos (from my Handycam) to my Pesonal Computer, the picture package(software) menu does not appear on my PC(The picture package software is already installed).

Everytime I try to click on the Picture Package Icon on my desktop, there is a pop-up that says I "must install Macromedia Flash Player for Application to continue".

I went ahead and installed the Adobe (Macromedia) Flash Player and it still doesn't work when I try to click on the Picture Package Icon. The pop-up still comes up. I also, re-installed some of the requirements for the for the camera to work such as Direct X and Windows Media Player.

I also enabled my Javascript(active Script).

The problem is most likely within my PC(maybe I'm missing another type of software???), what do you think are my options in resolving this matter?

Please help me out
