Question about Husqvarna Designer I
Are there adapters available ? Do they work? Help
Here's one source for a cable: http://www.cablestogo.com/category/usb/usb-adapters/usb-ieee-printer-adapters?gclid=CPCq8pL-_LQCFQyDnQodFVMAbQ
I suspect this is only the start of your problems and that your software would really work best with an XP operating system. You may want to get an old laptop computer with XP and dedicate it to you sewing machine. Check computer shops that specialize in rebuilding and selling used computers. You should be able to get one for $100-150.

SOURCE: Designer 1 vip customizing is
I admit I did not think that VIP Customizing worked on Vista at all, but I now know that some people have got it going. Have you searched the www.sewmuch4retirement.com website (the late Jan Henning's website, which is an absolute gold mine of information for Husqvarna and Pfaff machines)? The other solution might be to partitition your hard drive and run Win XP on one partitition, and use that to install and run VIP Customizing. There are also Yahoo Groups specializing in Husqvarna machines and products. These groups have a lot of members with a wide range of machines, software and experience. I'm sure there is someone out there with a similar problem and someone else with the answer.

You need to download the updated Windows 7 drivers from Pfaff. Husqvarna doesn't support Windows 7, but these guys do.
The third heading down under "Useful Software" (under the photo) is
"HASP Dongle Drivers"
-Try downloading this driver. It should fix your issue.

I'm sorry to tell you but your program will simply not run in your new Windows7 pc - it simply doesn't have the correct floppy connection driver for it.
Your only option is to either install XPMode or to dual boot. In XP you will have to install the driver for the LPT addon card and then your software.

Those floppy drives that require a dongle are really no good. The USB floppy drives are the way to go. Just plug and play. Here is a link to the USB floppy drives if interested. They start at around $8.00. If you want to stick with the floppy with the dongle, you might want to try running windows update. I didn't see where you posted the maker of the floppy drive or the dongle so getting the drivers or software is pretty much impossible.
