Vista unable to install Futura software

Dear, Sir/ Madam I just bought Singer Ce200 sewing & embroidery machine and have a problem installing the Futura software. Have been trying to find solution for the last two days and it has been quite a nightmare. I read hundreds of forums and feedbacks Wondered if you had an idea what the problem is and how it could be resolved! The PC I use is a actually laptop with Win Vista Home Premium. When I put the Futura cd it freezes at 100%, than I found the website which was ment to help installing it with Vista-www.futura-support.com- followed all the instructions and still can`t make it work. There is a message coming up and saying "Futura software is not installed in your computer. Install the application and repeat this set up". And that`s as much as it goes. I have tried it 5-6 times just today all the same result! Would be really greatful if you knew something more about It! I do not want to return the machine but if there is no possible solution will have to! Sincerely Verginiya same problem

    I have a 64bit laptop and I called singer today without much help. The software for the CE 150 will only run on 32 bit. There is no solution out there and the software company is aware of the company. I asked for the name of the software company and they are in Greece. I have a machine I can't use, I guess unless I buy a new computer. This is just a big blow for me & I am very frustrated.

Im having the same problem as ester3 Ive been trying to fix this for over a week now, ready to throw it all out the door! The patch did not work at all for me. This machine costs too much to have this many problems and looks like it has had this same problem for at least 3 years plenty of time for singer to update their software! Keep up with the times Singer! Computers upgrade all the time by the time you buy one and get it home there is something newer on the market. Rediculous! Really!

For all Futura models the first issue that should be checked in case of installation problems under Vista is whether the Vista 64bit or 32 bit. 64bit Vista is not supported yet.
If your Vista is 32bit and you have a new model of the machine (CE-150/250/350), then you can launch a troubleshooting utility (but not together with Futura main software, it should be stopped and then utility can be launched). Either copy some last messages of troubleshooting report here or send report to Singer.
For CE-200 there is no troubleshooting utility but you can request from Singer by e-mail (in addition to instructions from CD and Futura-support site) a detailed instruction in PDF format with screenshots etc.

Singer CE0100 Futura connection error....


Hi I had the same problem sent question to Singer and this was their reply

"Do you have Vista 32-bit or Vista 64-bits? Unfortunately the CE-100/200 machine will not be compatible with either Vista 64-bit systems or the newest Windows 7 computers. The CE-100/200 will only be compatible with Windows 98 through Vista 32-bit operating systems.

This appears to be a hardware issue and not something that we will be able to create a patch to correct. Drivers necessary for 64-bit operating systems are not compatible with the CE-100/200 machines." so I guess we are SOL

Vista unable to install Futura software


Vista is notorious for being flaky regarding embroidery software etc.....have you had advice from the Singer Dealer where you bought the machine ? Find your local dealer HERE

Singer USA Customer Support should have solutions for these things by now too and I recommend you hound them if they cannot easily suggest what to do. Vista is some years old now, not the first few weeks of release !

Vista unable to install Futura software


check for your disk size!
try to check also for the software properties labeled on the CD especially its memory and disk allocation requirements!
it may also need you to connect the machine to the computer first before installing its software!

Vista unable to install Futura software


I found a solution that seemed to work for my setup (Vista-Futura 200): Go to the Futura support site www.futura-support.com . Choose "Service Updates" from the left-hand Menu. Choose "Quantum® FUTURA™ (CE-200) Owners running Windows XP Service Pack 2 operating system WITH one or more of the Options (AutoPunch, CrossStitch, PhotoStitch, and HyperFont) installed". Look for the bullet-point list in the explanations. It says there: "If you own the AutoPunch Option and you could not successfully install it, download the Service Update by clicking here." Select the highlighted link, download the patch and install it. Worked fine for me, I hope it helps you, too.
