Question about Husqvarna Rose

1 Answer

Reader/Writer box I recently bought a new computer and had problems installing my Hus program. I finally found out I could use the Program Compability Wizard and install it. Now when I put the card into the reader/writer box it says No LPT port available. All of the cables ect. are plugged into their right places. Can anyone help with this problem? Thank you in advance !

Re: Reader/Writer box

You might need an update for your reader writer box. The one you have might be old and that is why it does not recognizes it. Just go to the manufacturer's site and download an update for your reader/writer box.

I have a Viking Rose, I have the 3d customizer program, the Husqvarna Embroidery card reader writer box. When I try to run the program it states there is no dongle found. I have uninstalled and reinst

If you don't have a dongle the program will not open. If you do have it, you may need the driver updates for your computer. Lastly the 3D program only works on some operating systems. I think windows 95 or 97. If you have a newer computer with a new operating system it won't work and yeah, Husqvarna will not help!

I had a similiar problem, but I have the Designer SE. In Windows 7 there is an option to run it in a compability mode, so I had to set my program to run in XP 32 bit mode for the 4D software to run. I don't know if it will help, but if the software worked in XP, this should do the trick.

You might just need new drivers for the reader/writer. Try the Husqvarna website first, or else do an internet search for "Husqvarna Reader/Writer drivers" or something similar. Is the reader/writer a USB or serial connection? You are going to have problems if it is serial and I am not sure there is a solution, but USB connection should definitely be able to get working.

I dont believe the parallel reader writer will work with Vista. You need to purchase a Husqvarna USB reader writer and problem will be solved.
Good Luck

I bought a reader /writer for my husk. Platinum 955E. Now I have changed my computer and have lost the disc that is neded to install the program. I did register the reader/writer..but of course can't...

Have you tried asking your Husqvarna dealer to help you out? They very likely would have the software available. Another place to try might be an online group specializing in Husqvarna embroidery machines e.g. Yahoo Groups. One of the members there might be able to assist you with a spare copy of the software disk.
I can understand how frustrating these sorts of things can be. I've owned Husqvarna embroidery machines and software for about 15 years now and have experienced a few problems. However, be assured that other brands are not without their share of problems too. Husqvarna did make using their products somewhat awkward in those early years of embroidery machines, wanting to protect their property from being pirated and having to use the reader/writer and associated software was one of the prices to be paid. Technology has since moved on and these kinds of problems rarely occur these days. That's no comfort to you in your present predicament, I know, but your machine is a quality machine and worth getting it set up so it works for you the way it should. Good luck in sourcing a disk.

Program installed on Laptop Vista and will not find Reader/Writer

Uninstall it. Then Re-install it in "Compatability Mode for XP SP2" Also run it in "Administrator Mode". That is your only shot at making it go. It is NOT designed for Vista.

Cant get reader writer to work on xp servpk 3

Your Husqvarna Software and Hardware sound like they might be as much as 10 years old or so. There is nothing available to make your parallel port reader/writer work with a USB port. There is a new reader / writer that is available that uses a USB port but may not work with your older software so consulting you local dealer would be wise.If her software is called, "customizing" you'll need new software too. If your wife loves her #1+ it will cost less to just upgrade with new software and a reader / writer than replace her whole system.

Can't load software w/o the lost Software Licensing code

I too have the 3D Studio, which I purchased from an estate sale. Fortunately, I had the serial number, however I don't have the rest of the registration info to change registration for the program updates. It will not let me install any updates. However, it works just fine without them.

I've heard others with the same problem, and there is no way to bypass their protection codes. Their program also comes with a "dongle", which is a product licensing key, that plugs into your USB port. The program will not run without it. Another item that they will not replace if lost.

I had thought about purchasing another program, but really only needed the new generic reader-writer to plug in to my computer. (It must be an embroidery reader/writer.)

Husqvarna will, however, be happy to sell you another program at great expense.

Alternatively, I would suggest purchasing a more inexpensive program --Embird for expample, and the Ultimate Box (reader/writer) and Card , which will be much cheaper than what the Husky people will sell you. Also, there is no "key" to plug in to operate their program.

Hopefully, the seller can find the registration for it somewhere, because without it, it's pretty useless as far as I know. Husqvarna is very good at protecting their products.

Here is a site with lots of info on both the above items. I bought my reader/writer Ultimate Box Plus and card cheaper from All Brands, though.

Hope all this helps.

Connecting Reader Writer Box To New Computer

After checking with the Dealer, I was told my old Reader/Writer Box & embroidery software is not compatible with Windows Vista. I will have to purchase a new R/W Box which has a USB cable & a different type of dongle.
