Default Sony Vaio Software to control Sound/Brightness buttons

Hi, everyone.

Have Sony Vaio P with Vista.

I removed VAIO software to "imptove" functionality and discovered, that do not have control on sound/brightness buttons.

Does anybody know how to restore this functionality?

Thanks in advance for help.

You need to install VAIO Event Service and VAIO Control Centre. That should get the brightness buttons working again.

FYI I've only got the above installed, plus VAIO Power Management and VAIO Smart Network installed on my Windows 7 RC Vaio P here. And all is working as it should for me.

All you need to get them to work is VES and the shared library. Pretty lightweight.

Control center isn't a requirement (I don't have it installed and the keys work).
