    Hi

    Did you install the VAP (value added package)?

    The VAP is necessary in order to run some Toshiba tools and to update the BIOS.
    I found a threads with the same error message but the user used Win XP.

    The issue could be solved by installation of Common Modules (only for Win XP).
    But the VAP is released for Vista and Win 7 and common modules are within the VAP package.
