Question about Sewing Machines
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.

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,

Use program compatibility wizard and you'll be able to use the same program in Windows XP also.

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.
