    I have the same problem with my diamond. I have a new 64 bit vista system and get the same error no matter which driver I try to install ...the 32 or 64 bit drivers and I used the disk that came with the machine. It worked fine on the old system

    Have you installed the drivers from the cd that came in the box with the Diamond?

Thanks for the response. The problem turned out to be my fault. I had my Diamond connected to my computer when I tried to install the drivers. As soon as I disconnected it, the drivers all installed and everything is fine.

I have seen this before. You can't have 2 differnt parts of the software installed and have it work. If you had an SE then got the Diamond. It can cause this. I had to uninstall all my 4D software and drivers and reinstall them. in the right order and then it worked.

It sounds like the problem is your operating system (Vista) not your Viking Diamond software.

Hi Sheila,

Click on start, click on My computer, then look in the left hand menu for View system information and click on it, click on Hardware, click on Device Manager, your VSM reader should show under Universial serial bus controllers, normally at the bottom of the page. If there is a yellow ? mark next to it, it means the driver has not been installed successfully. If so, double click on VSM reader, click on driver, make sure your software CD is in your cd drive and click on Update driver. Should solve your problem.

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.

I have a Husqvarna 1+, how can I connect my laptop to it to download embroidery designs?


Sorry,... there is not a connection to allow you to do that. However there is a Reader/Writer unit that you can plug into a USB port on your computer and write a design to the card that comes with the reader/writer and then put the card in the machine to embroidery a downloaded design.

Your reader writer will not work unless you have the Husqvarna Viking software to drive it. The first level of the software is called 4D Embroidery. Their web site does a great job at showing the features and benefits. It sells for $400 and if you buy it from your local dealer, they usually offer classes. It is not difficult software to figure out.

I need a driver for a husquvarna 3D reader/writer card, where can I find one


Info on Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

When installing the 4D Embroidery System onto Windows 7 computers, the dongle drivers may not initially work correctly, as the 4D Embroidery System installs a set of dongle drivers which were created before Windows 7.
Download and install the latest dongle drivers prior to installing the 4D Embroidery System. Failure to do this, may result in the "Dongle driver not found (E0009)" when you try to open the 4D modules.
Please follow the steps below to install the latest dongle drivers BEFORE installing the 4D Embroidery System
  1. Download and install the latest Dongle Drivers.
  2. Insert your 4D Dongle.
  3. Install your 4D Embroidery System software (and all updates).
  4. Open your 4D Embroidery System software to confirm that your dongle is working correctly.
If you installed the 4D Embroidery System software before installing the latest dongle drivers and if you experience problems such as the error message "Unable to start hasplms service..."; download and install the latest Dongle Drivers.

Link to dongle drivers - http://www.vsmsoftware.net/downloads/HASP/haspusersetup.exe

Good luck.

Can't get computer and embroidery machine to connect via USB. Computer doesn't recognize embroidery machine. (Husqvarna Designer Diamond) I also have a new DELL laptop.


If your using Windows Vista, you have to have the multi user account in the off postioin. Also if you had 3D embroidery software and you upgraded to 4D software you have to be sure to uninstall the 32 bit drivers from the 3d for the 4d to work properly.

You do have to install the communication software that came with the diamond also. It won't communicate through the 3d or 4d only.

Husqvarna Diamond Embroidery unit problems


Make sure that the red disk (smaller than a floppy) on the underside of your embroidery unit has been removed. Remove and discard the red disk. It is used for shipping purposes only. Joyce
