After many hours and days, I finally got hold of a USB installation that works. I know that many of you have gone through what I have (no help from Sony)and I sincerely hope this works for you. I wish I could take the credit for supplying these setup files (zipped), but a very kind gentleman sent them to me who will remain nameless (incase he gets into trouble).
The following files are found inside the driver download file.
