Singer Futura C-100 Loading problems using Vista

Just bought a new computer with the 32 bit Vista on it. I went to the Sindger site and got the installing instuctions and patch for vista. Followed the directions and it keeps asking for the optional disk for the digitizing software you can get for this machine. I do not use this software since I use another digitzing program. How do I get past this. It seems that the patch is for the C-200 only.

SOURCE: Vista unable to install Futura software

Vista is notorious for being flaky regarding embroidery software etc.....have you had advice from the Singer Dealer where you bought the machine ? Find your local dealer HERE

Singer USA Customer Support should have solutions for these things by now too and I recommend you hound them if they cannot easily suggest what to do. Vista is some years old now, not the first few weeks of release !

I have a singer futura ce 200. MY old computer crashed so i got a new computer with windows 7. I read that i needed the upgrade to make it compatible but still cant get the software to intall. HELP!!

Go to your start menu, then look for internet explorer (32 bit) do not use the 64 bit. I have the same problem with using my printer. I hate windows 7, it stinks. All my old programs I have to do this with.

I have recently bought a new computer and i installed the software, but the machine will not recognise the computer, can it be installed on computer with the new windows 7 or do i need an update??

Yes, it can be installed on Windows 7. Check the Futura support sight at and look on the right hand side under downloads. There's a download listed for CE150/250/350, etc, that applies to XP 32 & 64 bit, Vista and Windows 7 32 & 64 bit. Follow the directions CAREFULLY! If this doesn't work for you, I've posted a set of instructions under CE100 solutions for running the CE100 software on Windows Vista/7 by installing a Virtual Machine software on Windows 7 that works regardless of the situation.

The update should work for you perfectly, however. Just make sure you uninstall the Futura software and reboot your machine BEFORE you do anything else and follow the instructions from the website carefully! Good luck!

Singer CE0100 Futura connection error....

Hi I had the same problem sent question to Singer and this was their reply

"Do you have Vista 32-bit or Vista 64-bits? Unfortunately the CE-100/200 machine will not be compatible with either Vista 64-bit systems or the newest Windows 7 computers. The CE-100/200 will only be compatible with Windows 98 through Vista 32-bit operating systems.

This appears to be a hardware issue and not something that we will be able to create a patch to correct. Drivers necessary for 64-bit operating systems are not compatible with the CE-100/200 machines." so I guess we are SOL

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

I received an email back from Singer stating that it is not possible at this time to load the Futura software on a 64-bit system using Vista. I have emailed to ask whether it would load if the OS were XP, but I haven't heard back yet.

They said that they were working on finding a fix for this, but they aren't sure that they will since it's a hardware problem.

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 350 and 150


After reading through your problem, I began doing some research. You are correct with your initial assumption. Singer at this time, does not support Vista 64bit Operating System. They will support it on Vista 32bit, but even then you would have to install it in what is called, "Compatability Mode." Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to have many vendors not have their software work on 64bit systems. Many programs/applications were only written to work on 32bit systems. Ocassionally, you will have a system work on 64bit, by almost pure accident. Here's the link for the system requirements on the Singer Quantum Futura.
For the plain futura system, you can go to:
click on the Futura System Requirements.
If you would like to attempt to install to Vista x64. Try following the compatability mode for 32bit Vista. read the "Click here" to read the detailed installation instructions for installing on a Vista system

Best of Luck.

Vista unable to install Futura software

I found a solution that seemed to work for my setup (Vista-Futura 200): Go to the Futura support site . Choose "Service Updates" from the left-hand Menu. Choose "Quantum® FUTURA™ (CE-200) Owners running Windows XP Service Pack 2 operating system WITH one or more of the Options (AutoPunch, CrossStitch, PhotoStitch, and HyperFont) installed". Look for the bullet-point list in the explanations. It says there: "If you own the AutoPunch Option and you could not successfully install it, download the Service Update by clicking here." Select the highlighted link, download the patch and install it. Worked fine for me, I hope it helps you, too.
