  • You mean the hardware buttons (like the volume etc.)? If yes, you might need to obtain some sort of keyboard drivers from Sony's website

  • My edit/version:
    You mean the hardware buttons (like the volume or custom shortcut buttons etc.)? If yes, you will need to obtain some sort of drivers (not necessarily keyboard drivers) from Sony's website.
    They can be win7 or Vista drivers...but not XP drivers.

    Did you try running the app in Vista compatibility mode?
    (right click exe of app, select Properties, click Compatibility tab, check Run this program in compatibility mode for, then choose Vista in the dropdown box)
