My husbands late wife had an embroidery machine. We have found the Palette software, upgrade for versions 1-4 to version 6.0. The computer will not let me download the upgrade because I don't have the original .
where can I get the 1-4 version?

You will need to upgrade to Palette 8,0 or NeXT versions that are compatible with Windows 7. I'm not sure if Palette 7 upgrade will work either. Other option, may be to get old computer with Windows XP and the right Parallel printer port with the card reader security device for Palette software to work.
You do not need to changes any board. The machine carries software and so does the embroidery unit, in order for the to read each other the s.machine and e.unit must have same software. Just take you machine and embroidery unit into your local bernina dealer and have you dealer download version 4.01 to you machine and e unit. then all will work just find. usually the dealer will do the download for free!!!!!!!!!!
This error can appear when you attempt to start 4D software. This will happen if you have installed any version 8.0 4D software, and the 4D Embroidery System software that is already installed has a later version than your 4D software.
If you have a CD (or DVD) containing 4D Embroidery System Software for version 8.1 or later, install the update for the 4D Embroidery System found in the Patch folder on the CD (or DVD).
If you have updated your 4D Embroidery System to version 8.1 or later using an update obtained with Smart Update, find the update you have already downloaded and run it again.
If you are unable to find the update, or you are not sure if you have the latest update, use Smart Update to obtain the latest update, as described in CC007.
When you run the update, you may be asked to choose between Modify, Repair and Remove. This selection appears because you have updated on a previous occasion. Choose the Repair option, and this will ensure all your 4D Embroidery System software is updated.
Use program compatibility wizard and you'll be able to use the same program in Windows XP also.
To start the Program Compatibility Wizard, click Start, click Help
and Support, click Find compatible hardware and software for Windows XP, and then, under See Also
in the navigation pane, click Program Compatibility Wizard.

Hi, Unfortunately any of Bernina's software that is older than Version 5 , will not work with Vista. There are some software patches available on the berninausa.com web site, but there is nothing out there that will help you if you have any Version 4 software or older. Microsoft really through out a curve ball to everyone with VISTA as there is a lot of software out there that will not work in that operating system. Actually the lowest cost solution would be to get a nice used computer that runs Windows XP. You do not need a super fast, state of the art computer to run embroidery programs. I bought a nice used computer at a yard sale for $10.00 and it even came with the XP install disk. I replaced the hard drive just because they do wear out after a few years, installed XP in it and that computer is now in my wife's sewing room and it is only used for her embroidery work. You might have a computer repair shop in your area where you can buy an older XP computer that has been reconditioned. The few dollars you would spend to get an older computer would cost you far less than buying new Bernina Version 5 software. It is EXPENSIVE! Good luck...bushvideo
Not if you just want to get the patterns off the internet, etc., you cannot, or at least with my older version, make your own designs. You need to download the program to your computer. Its pretty simple if you get on the internet and download the designs put your palette on your computer, go to the designs, with a blank card, and load the patterns. Hope this makes sense.
