Question about Sewing Machines

Software types and sewing

Does this machine also function as a sewing machine? Also, If I do not have the explorations software included when I purchase, is there a different software that is compatible with this machine? Thanks!

I believe you will need to be much more specific to expect a specific solution. First, which machine and model, how old, serial number, etc. As for the software, you might check the manufactures site for downloadable software specific to your make model, year, and serial number--then check for any advancements to that software. Not always the easiest, but necessary. Usually manufacturers will have a solutions center where you can ask for specific assistance. It may be without cost or a 900 number. I have seen both.

SOURCE: What do I do if my computer still will not recognize the machine and software?

Hi - What version of the File Assistant are you trying to run? The original version did not communicate and a subsequent version fixed this. It could also be a com port setting or a few other things.

If you email me your phone number, I'd be happy to call and try to walk you through some things to get it working. Takes too long to write and too many trouble-shooting steps that change from scenario to scenario to write it all here!

I worked for Pfaff for 10 years doing just these kinds of things and would be more than happy to try to help you out.

Look forward to hearing from you,
Kim

SOURCE: Can't load software w/o the lost Software Licensing code

I too have the 3D Studio, which I purchased from an estate sale. Fortunately, I had the serial number, however I don't have the rest of the registration info to change registration for the program updates. It will not let me install any updates. However, it works just fine without them.

I've heard others with the same problem, and there is no way to bypass their protection codes. Their program also comes with a "dongle", which is a product licensing key, that plugs into your USB port. The program will not run without it. Another item that they will not replace if lost.

I had thought about purchasing another program, but really only needed the new generic reader-writer to plug in to my computer. (It must be an embroidery reader/writer.)

Husqvarna will, however, be happy to sell you another program at great expense.

Alternatively, I would suggest purchasing a more inexpensive program --Embird for expample, and the Ultimate Box (reader/writer) and Card , which will be much cheaper than what the Husky people will sell you. Also, there is no "key" to plug in to operate their program.

Hopefully, the seller can find the registration for it somewhere, because without it, it's pretty useless as far as I know. Husqvarna is very good at protecting their products.

Here is a site with lots of info on both the above items. I bought my reader/writer Ultimate Box Plus and card cheaper from All Brands, though.

Hope all this helps.

When you purchase the designs online, there should be a choice for file type based on YOUR machine. No other software is necessary but windows explorer to move the file to the floppy drive. I am not familiar with what file type Viking uses. I am also assuming your machine takes floppy diskettes?

Need to buy a manual for Singer CE-100 Futura Computerized Sewing Machine


If you have the software CD that came with the machine, the manual is on it.
The following paragraph is from Singer's Customer Service page:
  • Is there a more extensive manual for the Futura™? printbutton.png pdf_button.png Yes. With the basic Futura™ CD in the D drive, open up Windows Explore, by right clicking on the START button on the bottom tool bar. Left click on the drive and the contents of the CD will appear on the right side of the screen. Among the folders listed will be the Manual. Double left click on the icon. The manual is 92 pages and explains in detail all of the programs functions.
However if you have lost that CD, the Singer Asia Pacific site provides only accessory software CDs for purchase. You can try e-mailing Singer customer service in the form provided to see if they have the original CD in stock; otherwise you can purchase the tutorial CD.

How can i mirror image on the ce100, the directions in manual are not working. are there updates to capibilities?


As far as I remember there was no function "Flip hor./ver." in Futura 1.0.0.x. You could upgrade your software to version 2.5.0.x which is working with ce100/200 sewing machine models and contains functionality as newer models have. In this software version you will find function "Flip" in the context menu of Select mode (select design or color blocks you'd like to mirror, click right mouse button and select in the menu "Flip horizontally" or "Flip vertically").

I am trying to hook up my singer embroidery machine converter box to my laptop. I think I have to have a specific type of driver on my computer for this, can you help?


Dear Dawn528,

The driver is included with your PSW software and will load automatically when you install the software.

You will need a serial/usb adapter to connect from the machine serial port to your laptop usb port. This will come with a seperate driver that you nee to install.

Good luck

Can't read my disk that I read in the sewing machine. Want to combine words and designs to put on my machine and embroider it.


What software are you using? You need to read the disk back to your PC in Disk Manager (VIP, 3D or 4D software) or use the input/output of Embird, if that is what you have. The disks that are used in the Designer 1 are not able to be read directly by a PC in Windows Explorer because they are in sewing machine language, not PC language. You can combine designs and lettering on the Designer 1 machine, without having to use PC software at all. Let me know if you need help with this.

Singer Futura CE200 Software


If you use the standard FUTURA software. you will have to buy an add-on for the Software.

Singer offers an add-on called Hyperfont which allows to digitize any true type font on the computer.

The software is available in stores and online, but be sure to get the right version for your software. There are versions for the Futura CE150, CE 250 etc, and there are other versions for the CE100 and CE200, so be careful.

You should also keep in mind that although you can digitize any true type font with this software, not every font is suitable for embroidering and will stitch out nicely.

Sincerely yours,

Aki
