    I am also searching for a fix to this problem. If anyone can find a solution, please let me know. I do not want to spend $800 for a new program, have tried a USB port conversion, have called Brother with no results, and just want this to work on my XP system. Any help would be appreciated.

Just an idea, but have you tried running the software in Windows 95 or 98 Compatability mode??
Right click on program icon scroll down to propertys CLICK,...
This should open a box with several tabs on the top.... click tab that says COMPATIBILITY and Check the box that say RUN PROGRAM COMPATABLE with windows 95 or Windowns 98.

Click OK and try the program again.

Just a suggestion, but it MIGHT work. Work a try,
Good Luck,

I have installed artista v3.0 software and dongle on a machine running Windows 98. When I open the software to run it says it cannot see the security device.


Dongle will not be recognized
NOTE - If you have encountered any of the following when installing your v5 BERNINA Embroidery Software:
After the computer reboot the screen will prompt for the new dongle but will NOT recognize it.
After the computer reboot the screen will prompt AND recognize the new dongle but never ask for or recognize the older dongle.
The software installation seems to complete but when attempting to open the program you will get the tool tips for a period of time then get taken back to your Desktop.
After rebooting the PC, you get an "error 7" message in the black DOS screen.
You may try one of the following (NOTE: Disconnect ALL USB devices from the computer EXCEPT for the version 5 dongle. If doing an update, attach the old dongle only when prompted):
1. If the version 5 software is installed, go to MY COMPUTER > Local Disk C: > Program Files > BERNINA > Embroidery Software > BIN folder and in the BIN folder will be a file called 'DATAGATHER' or 'DATAGATHER.EXE'. Locate this file and double-left click it to restart the 'verifying the security device' process and should finalize the brain transfer.
2. If step 1 was not successful, you will next need to try to run the REPAIR feature from the v5 install CD. To do this, reinsert the version 5 installation cd, and choose the REPAIR feature when you are asked to make a choice. Click NEXT and YES to finalize the REPAIR and restart the computer when prompted


Also doesn't look like it will run on Windows 98. It is SOOO Old! Version 5 won't anyway.

I have a brother embroidery machine, and pe-design life software on my computer, I purchased a brother pes design cd from eBay which had really good reviews, but when I click on a design it says ( par


PE Design versions require certain OS'es, later versions work on newest WIndows 8. The PE Design software requires the right operating system and a CARD READER that also serves as a security device which allows the software to work.

I have a 3D/ Pfaff 2170 Creative & I'm using Windows XP. No device found error. I can not transfer the embroidery design to 2170 Pfaff. Help!


Sounds like you don't have the device driver on you computer for the sewing machine. Question: Did it ever work? If it used to work but doesn't now, try using a different cable from the computer to the sewing machine. You can also try rebooting the computer (with the sewing machine connected and powered up) to see if it will locate the machine.

Totally confused by my machines and these cards!!!! Please please please help


In the software you have to go to "Options" and adjust the "Design Page Property". If it is set to a size larger than what your machine is capable of stitching, the machine will not be able to read the card.

That setting has little to do with the size of the embroidery you are saving, it is more to do with telling the machine how big a hoop the design will be using.

That's why one machine reads the card but not the other machine (hoop size capability).

I have a ce-100 futura sewing machine that will not work with windows 7 what do i need to do to fix this problem


The Futura software and the machine drivers exist for Windows 98, NT, 2000, ME, or XP. If you have Win7 32-bit, you may be able to run in the compatibility mode. Load the CD into the optical drive, then right click on the .exe file on the CD. Then choose Properties. Select the Compatibility tab and check Run this program in the compatibility mode. Click Apply and OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. This isn't guaranteed to work since the changes in the OS are significant.

To check if you have Win7 32-bit or the 64-bit version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. The title will say Windows 7 (Version) for a 32-bit OS. It will read Windows 7 (Version) x64 for the 64-bit version of the OS.

If you have the 64-bit OS or the compatibility mode doesn't work, you need a computer running an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual-boot computer (where you select your OS at startup) or a virtual computer (that runs inside the real computer). If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of those versions, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

(The last person I dealt with with the issue of an embroidery machine not talking to Windows 7 kept their old Windows XP computer just to work with the sewing machine. Fortunately the old computer was still working enough to use for the purpose.)

You will have to maintain an XP computer or buy new software there is no fix for your problem.It's the electronic age the old software was written for the XP operating system.When MS changed the operating system Husqvarna Viking had to design new software it's that simple.Don't blame the manufacturer Microsoft made the changes that created the problem. www.sewvac.com

Cannot download patters from a computer that has Windows XP. Sewing machine worked with Windows 95 and 98, but won't with Windows XP.


Sometimes the PC operating system's security will not allow correct installation of software.

You can try to reinstall your software by temporarily turning off the firewall and anti virus programs. Be sure to turn them back on after the installation.

If this does not help, you will need to contact Pfaff support - http://www.pfaffusa.com/4256.html

Viking Rose can't install System 5 software


You may be able to find an old computer with Windows 95 or 98. Make sure that it also has a parallel port for the older R/W boxes.

You may also find that the 4D Embroidery package will do what you wish to do and it is under $400. 4D Embroidery Extra is the $700 package.

If you only want to put existing designs onto the card with no manipulation, you can get the Reader/Writer kit, $199 MSRP that includes Organizer which will allow you to load 1 design to your card at a time.

Unfortunately, System 5 was replaced by VIP which was replaced by 3D which was replaced by 4D. I don't think that system 5 will run on anything newer than Windows 98.
