This file comes from the Spanish Sony webpage... It is supposed to be an European valid file...

I just installed the file the Sony software offered me to install (the location of the Sony software is set to US, however). My reader was bought in Germany and has that strange firmware restriction that does not allow me to select US as my region (and store).

It has kept this annoying restriction with the update (I only installed it because I hoped they'd changed their minds about that).

We suppose that Sony might have screwed something up.

There exist different and incompatible 1.0.03 firmware updates for European devices.

So you did not download it (yourself) from a European website.

Anyone?

No. I don't see what difference it makes, though. Either I got the US version of the file (because of the region settings of the software) and it did install fine on my European T2 or I got a European version of the file because it checked the hardware.

In any case, I would've thought that you asked because you wanted, you know, to actually install the update (which, as I can confirm, works splendidly). And since you'd be happy with an .exe file, I'd say Windows isn't a big problem for you. You could even refuse to install the update and just grab the file from your download directory once the Sony software has downloaded it.

You could even uninstall the Sony software if you don't like it.

Pardon me for trying to help.
