Question about Husqvarna Rose

5 Answers

Software patch required

I have recently purchased a new laptop that runs on Winodws Vista. The laptop only has USB ports, and I can no longer connect my Reader writer box, and all the adpaters we have purchased do not communicate with the box.

I am currently running (my old PC) on Windows XP; my original Husqvarna software runs on Windows 95. I have the Viking Rose machine.

Is there a software update that is available to assist with my problem.

You did not indicate which operating system is used on your laptop. If you have Win Vista, 7, or 8, there is a patch that you can download from singerco.com, find your XL400, go to software and download the patch (should go to your download folder) . Next go to the Control Panel and uninstall the software. Re start your computer. Turn OFF your anti virus software and install the Base Singer software. Next, go to the download folder and double click on the Futura patch. Plug in your usb to the singer, then laptop, and turn on the sewing machine. At this point you can Launch the Futura software.
1. Turn on Computer
2. Plug in usb from XL 400
3. Turn on XL
4. Launch Software

Singer 250 can not run 86 on 64 platform


There is an update to give an x64 driver for the Singer CE-250 that will let you run on an x64. With the sewing machine not connected to the computer, install the software that came with the machine. Click OK at all of the "cannot run x86 build on a 64-bit OS" messages. When it is done, install the software from http://futura-support.com/products/ce-250/software . (The second one is for XP, Vista, and Win7 versions.) Accept the unverified driver (install anyway). After this completes, then connect the sewing machine to the USB port on the computer.

Similar patches exist for the CE-200.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the version number of your software. I know with Husqvarna Viking's 3D Embroidery, there are versions that can be upgraded to work with x64 and versions that are not patchable.

My Bernina Artista 180E no longer works with updated Windows. Is it possible to upgrade so that I can still use my 180E and not have to buy another machine?


Just use the free download software from Bernina called Artlink. I used it along with a USB to Serial converter cable to connect to the machine. Works wonderfully. Allows me to still use my old Artista designer software if I want to on an older machine and then when I want to actually transfer the designs I use the laptop with the USB cable.

Machine will only respond with desk top not lap top computer when doing embroidery. why?


Could be a number of reasons, as I don't know what response you are/are not getting or what messages you're getting. First, do you have the same operating systems on both machines? (Windows XP, Vista, 7) There's a patch available for Windows 7 on the Futura website at www.Futura-support.com that should allow the Futura software to run on this operating system.

Another reason could be with the USB ports. Not all USB ports provide the same amount of power, and the Singer machine and USB cable require 12V. On a desktop, you normally have to have the cable plugged into the BACK of the computer, not into a front port or USB hub. If you're getting a message on your laptop that the cable isn't plugged in, then this is most likely your problem. If you're using a USB hub, plug the cable directly into a port on the back of your laptop. And if that port doesn't work, move to another port, trying each one on your laptop, until you find one that works. That port has the power that you need.

I hope one of these solutions works for you.

Your software cannot connect through a usb port if it originally connected through a printer port. The usb option came about in later versions of husqvarna's software and there is no patch that makes it work through a usb hub. Her only option for running your old software is to have an older computer with the parallel port for the printer style cable.

I have a Husqvarna 1250/Viking 1+ that my aunt recently gave me when she upgraded machines. I have installed the Customizing 95 (version 1.31) software on my laptop and it works fine. However, I can not...


1. Did the software come with a dongle? This is a "key" that looks like a memory stick, that is actually a copyright protection device. You cannot access the program without it. To get the program to recognize it. plug it into a free USB Port, then power up your computer. It will read the dongle as a new device and install it on your computer. Always make sure the dongle is plugged into the same USB port as when its installation.

2. Check the operating system compatibility of your embroidery software and your computer.

What is your computer's OS? If you have Vista, it will not read Win95-XP. In that case, you may need to find a used computer to dedicate to your embroidery and install Win 98. I have XP 2000 and it reads all the Win programs back through 95.

My Husqvarna Rose/3D Embroidery Studio, will not operate with the Vista program. It will run on XP, because XP is backward compatible to previous Windows programs.

If this is the problem, you can still purchase older Windows programs very affordably. Before installing it on your hard drive, I would get expert instructions from a professional, who would back up your hard drive. I've also heard of people partitioning their hard drives, so that they could use more than one operating system.

(This is MUCH CHEAPER than purchasing a new machine and all the software, etc to go with.)

Just a note: The small notebooks they've come out with, do not have the proper drive to run your embroidery program.

3. If you have the reader'writer that came with the machine and no serial port on your computer or printer, you can take the box to your local Radio Shack or computer repair, where you can get an adapter with a serial plug on one end and a USB plug on the other, or get the "Ultimate Box Plus". The adapter is cheaper.

One, or all, of these little tidbits may fit your problem.

Hope this helps.

Cannot install software for futura error message continues to say machine not turned on or not connected Despite installing patch to my vista


First check whether your Vista is 32bit, 64bit Vista is not supported yet. If Vista is 32bit and still software cannot communicate with the machine then probably you installed an update or patch for another Futura version. Write here machine model, software version (Help->About Futura) and additional options (Autopunch,Photostich etc) if you purchased any.

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.
