Does someone have an older version that will work without the hardware [I downloaded the version available from the website twice to re-check].
No hardware is not required. I've also double checked and installed it on a fresh PC. I believe the issue you are having is with the VM software. Sony might be checking for a PC HW config. Do you have the USB enabled on your VM ware ?
