Flashtool drivers fail[Windows 8, 64bit)

Flashtool drivers fail[Windows 8, 64bit)

Hi!

I have just installed Windows 8 64bit on my PC. Now I want to use flashtool (flashtool-0.9.7.0-windows).

However, it's telling me that I need some drivers before I can flash my phone (xperia play r800i). I tried using this method:

Then you go to advanced settings and after you hit boot in Safe Mode, reboot and then install the drivers and after that you need to reboot again to go to normal mode.

However, I think that I'm failing miserably. I get this error (while installing the drivers in failsafe mode):

DPInst.exe does not execute on your current Operating System.

The drivers I am installing is:

"Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, Xperia Neo, Xperia PLAY, Xperia acro IS11S, Xperia acro SO-02C drivers"

(From a list inside the program "C:\Flashtool\drivers\Flashtool-drivers.exe")

I also tried to do something listed on MSDN:

Thanks Marilyn and Hadron for your responses. It turns out I finally came across the solution I was looking for shortly after posting this. Here's what I did:

Open a command prompt as an admin and type:

bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS (hit Enter)

bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON (hit Enter)

I might have rebooted after that. That put the machine in test mode, like I was going for, and allowed me to install the unverified test driver.

From:

But that failed too. Didn't really give me anything but the same error.

I am using Flashtool 64, since I'm on a 64 bit computer.

ANY HELP APPRECIATED!

/edit

When I try to execute the drivers in normal mode (ie. not fail safe) I get this:

" Driver name / status

[ ? ] Sony Ericsson (WinUsb) sa0102AdbDeviceClass (12/10/2010 2.0.0010.20010) / Ready to use

[ X ] Sony Ericsson Net (11/18/2010 6.0.6000.16388) / Install failed"
