    It is something to do with the .dll file. There was a security update from microsoft that apparently was supposed to fix usb cable issues, but did the opposite for the ce-200. I am finding that a vast majority of the issues with the ce-200 and windows xp have something to do with security updates. There is a fantastic group on for the ce-200 that explains alot of the tech issues with the ce-200 and XP. Hope this helps someone.

Clem Driver for Futura XL 400

I suspect that the problem you're having is your machine came with two CDs -- one for the basic software, and one for the add on software. If that's the case, before you can install the add-on software, you have to initialize the driver in Windows. Otherwise, you'll be a message that the driver isn't installed.

After installing the basic software (one CD), plug the USB cable into your machine and then connect the cable to your computer, then turn your machine on. You should them almost immediately get a message that a new device was found, and Windows is installing the driver for it. You can then proceed to install the second CD.

Software problem.

Ugh - computers! If you have access to another computer, try the download to see if it works. I kept my old desk top with xp for such occasions.

It could be you need to download a new driver for the program.

I would go to the Singer Company site where they have a Futura section with tutorials and FAQ. If a solution cannot be found, I would give customer service the entire story and ask for help.

I´m trying to install de clem driver in a pc with windos xp ande de driver not install correctly

There is no update or patch with the driver separately from the corresponding communication part intergrated into main software.
If installation cannot be completed successfully it must be something that interfere into this process. There is a troubleshooting utility in Futura folder that creates a report which is supposed to be sent to support service.

I have the same problem my windows xp and Bernia emb.

I kept an older, XP laptop with paralell port just for embroidery and machine knitting software programs. Bernina, etc, never have up to date drivers unless you buy the current stuff - very poorly supported considering the costs involved.

At one point, the Hasp4 driver upgrade was posted on the bernina site and on the alladin site - 2004 o4 2005. The alladin (sp?) site still has hasp4 drivers available for download, but they are newer, and I don't know if they will work for you.

I will try and find my older hasp4 upgrade, although my searches have produced nothing so far, and I am not sure exactly what the file was called.

Singer futura ce 250 software

This problem is with VISTA 64 bit. You need to load Vista 32 bit on your laptop. There are no 64bit drivers for the Futura CE 250. You will probably find this problem with other software too that doesn't specifically support 64 bit OS.

Singer Futura CE100 Connect Error. Check that USB cable is connected and power switch is turned on.

So here's what I did and it worked for me. Somehow the WinDriver that is on the software is uninstalling itself and needs to be listed with the drivers for Jungo for this software to work. I installed the software when I first got the machine with no problems, then suddenly I couldn't open it and was receiving the same connection error. When you go to to install the drivers, you'll notice their screen shot shows both the CLEM driver and the WinDriver. Check your machine following their instructions to see if you have both listed under the Jungo driver. If not, go to and select the link under "Available WinDriver Toolkits" for your operating systems (I selected WinDriver USB for Windows). It asks a bunch of questions which I didn't know the answer to so I selected "other" on almost everything then entered "NA"or "?" for the other description. Select Download now and it will need to restart your computer. Once done, I looked at the device manager again and now WinDriver is listed under Jungo and CLEM and the software opens, no problems.

This will at least temporarily solve the issue, however, it's a free trial which means the download will expire at some point. Good news is, the windriver is on the futura disk, I just don't know why it's not installing or staying on the machine. I am sending all of this to Singer to figure out what they're missing in the installation files and hopefully get a fix permanently.

Good luck!

Can't get quantum to work

When I looked at Futura's website yesterday getting information on installing this software on a Vista system, there are a number of things that you have to do, not just download and install the Vista patch.  After you install the Vista patch, instructions are given on how to set the program to run in WIN XP mode and then you have to install the XP patch.  Check the website for the specific instructions.  Now if I could just find a copy of the base software to install (my mother-in-laws computer crashed and no one can find the install CD -- we found the other one and the DVD video disk but not the install).  Singer wants to sell me the program again for $269.
