Software not opening with Singer Futura on Windows XP

Just a note for people with Windows XP using the software for Singer Quantum Futura CE 200. I could not open the program, called a computer repair person, spent lots of money, restored my computer and it still would not work. I just happened to call the store where I bought the machine and "Oh, other people have been also calling about this". Well it turns out that the only problems was that Windows XP's new automatic updates do not support the software for opening the futura program. I had to just TURN OFF the automatic updates and it worked like a charm. $500 later and losts of frustration. I hope I might prevent others from going through this. Jonebone

After much frustration with this problem, I finally went and bought a used, refurbished laptop with xp on it. Warrant lasts one year and I am ever so happy to get going again! Now, both of my machines are up and running at the same time, and I can now get my orders out on time!. I decided that when this happened, I could not afford to lose this kind of time again, so, I DO NOT CONNECT EITHER LAPTOP TO THE INTERNET, for my machines, so no possible problems ever again. I also get to use my main computer for internet only.

I do not have a solution, but the same problem. Also, Hyperfont causes the same shut done. Don't we need the sp2 for the other applications on our pcs?

I will be contacting Singer and making a complaint!

Sorry no solution but I am in the same boat as eabates. I can't load autopunch and open the Futura software. I did turn off the auto updates but if I'm reading this right I have to remove the updates as well, right? I have to turn off startup type, right? I am so new at this that I need someone to bring out the crayons. Paige

This is not a solution but I have the same problem as eabates. As soon as I intall the Futura AutoPunch software I can't open the Futura embroidery software anymore. Like eabates I have turned off the auto updates; I have disabled it at STARTUP TYPE. It all worked fine until this week. Thank goodness I found this site and got the primary software working but I WANT AutoPunch too. Anyone have any additional potential solutions??? Thanks so much for just getting part of the software working again.

I know what your talking about I have help others the same thing and turning off the updates is not all you should do cause it well come back ON in time you have to disable it from the Administrative Tools menu - click on Services, at the Automatic updates right click, click on properties at middle of page you well see "STARTUP TYPE" change it to Disabled. That well take care of it for good until you change it back to Automatic which you well need to do if you want an system update then you can go back to Disabled.

I have windows 7 and the futura software will not load into my singer quantum 200. I had no problems with my old computer which had windows xp. is there an updated futura software? Please help


Yes, there is. Go to http://www.futura-support.com/downloads/ce150.html. Read the instructions VERY carefully. You will need to have the 2.5 Futura upgrade, which is available for $99 at Jenny's Sewing http://cart.jennys-sewing-studio.com/.

In case you do have your old version of Windows XP lying around and don't care to spend the money on the upgrade, there is another alternative, though it does take a few more steps. But I use it currently on my machine to run my Futura and it works beautifully. It's available at http://www.fixya.com/support/r8955271-use_machine_windows_7_or_vista and will allow you to run any old XP software on a Vista or Windows 7 machine, but only if you have your old Windows XP software available.

Either way, be sure you follow the instructions carefully. With the upgrade, I have two friends who I've upgraded their software to run their Futura's this way and they both are working fine. As I said, I use the 2nd way and have been for month's. Good luck!

If you are using Futura 2.0.0.x software there is no update yet, but Windows 7 support has been already included into update for Futura 2.5.0.x. You may ask a closest Singer supplier about it.
