Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Can't install photostitch

After over a year of storage, I finally tried to install my software on my HP w/windows 7. After many attempts, and lots of research, I was finally able to do so. I'm sure not what finally worked. Got the futura upgrade, downloaded patches, it finally installed, ht machine itself first, after many attemps I finally got autopunch, cross stitch, and hyperfont to install but my photostitch wasn't in its case. Bought a new one on ebay, unopened, and it syas it's installing briefly, like the other ones did before they finally did. Please advise! Way too much stress! Thanks.

    Futura updates were installed. The other programs worked after the install. It was a few days later when I tried to install photostitch. It won't load.

Hi quackquack I was having the same problem with windows vista. If you go back on the futura website there is a patch to download which will install autopunch. Linda

SOURCE: Autopunch Installation - Vista

Check the Futura website.  There are specific instructions for how to setup the software to run in WIN XP mode and then after that is set, you have to install the WIN XP patch for Autopunch before it run.

I have installed artista v3.0 software and dongle on a machine running Windows 98. When I open the software to run it says it cannot see the security device.


Dongle will not be recognized
NOTE - If you have encountered any of the following when installing your v5 BERNINA Embroidery Software:
After the computer reboot the screen will prompt for the new dongle but will NOT recognize it.
After the computer reboot the screen will prompt AND recognize the new dongle but never ask for or recognize the older dongle.
The software installation seems to complete but when attempting to open the program you will get the tool tips for a period of time then get taken back to your Desktop.
After rebooting the PC, you get an "error 7" message in the black DOS screen.
You may try one of the following (NOTE: Disconnect ALL USB devices from the computer EXCEPT for the version 5 dongle. If doing an update, attach the old dongle only when prompted):
1. If the version 5 software is installed, go to MY COMPUTER > Local Disk C: > Program Files > BERNINA > Embroidery Software > BIN folder and in the BIN folder will be a file called 'DATAGATHER' or 'DATAGATHER.EXE'. Locate this file and double-left click it to restart the 'verifying the security device' process and should finalize the brain transfer.
2. If step 1 was not successful, you will next need to try to run the REPAIR feature from the v5 install CD. To do this, reinsert the version 5 installation cd, and choose the REPAIR feature when you are asked to make a choice. Click NEXT and YES to finalize the REPAIR and restart the computer when prompted


Also doesn't look like it will run on Windows 98. It is SOOO Old! Version 5 won't anyway.

First, there's a Windows 7 update available atwww.Futura-support.com. Click on the lefthand side, then on CE100/150/250/350,etc, etc. Follow the directions CAREFULLY. First, be sure the uninstall ALLFutura software you've attempted to install and reboot your PC.

If for some reason this doesn't solve you're problem, I've posted a set ofinstructions athttp://www.fixya.com/support/r8955271-use_machine_windows_7_or_vista that willallow you to run the software under XP on your Windows 7 machine. This is a bitmore complicated a solution, but if you follow the instructions carefully, youshould be fine. Try the Futura update first, though.

I hope this solves you're problem. Happy embroidery!

Bought the upgrade for my Futura, I have a HP laptop with windows 7, I installed it according to directions and it tells me it failed to initialize security and will not even open up.


Number 1, go out to the Futura support site at www.Futura-support.com and download the patch for Windows 7. On the left hand side of the screen, click on Downloads, then CE100/150/250/350,etc, etc. Make sure you follow the directions CAREFULLY. Also, be sure to completely UNINSTALL all of the Futura software you've already installed and reboot your computer before starting all of the instructions.

If this gives you any problems, I've posted a solution under the CE100 solutions area for running your machine with Windows Vista/7 using a virtual machine program. It's a lot more steps than using the patch, but some people do still need to go this route. Look for it on the CE100 Solutions/Problems home page. Still, you should be fine just with the patch.

Happy embroidering!

I have a Futura CE-100 and got a new laptop with Windows 7 and can not get the software to install. Gets to 100% and won't complete. How can I fix this?

Why "Digitizer 10000", which used to work on my computer with WinXP SP2, is not working on Windows 7? After installing the software, I click on the button to start the program, but the mistake comes. Help...


Windows 7 is not compatible to your Digitizer 10000.
You may need a software driver to configure it with
the new operating system. You should know that there are lots of things that work with Windows XP and won't work with Win 7. So try surfing the internet
at Microsoft to address your problem.

Futura ce 100. Changed computers and can't get past the ''cops''


If you have upgraded to Vista, there have been considerable troubles with all makes of machine in the last few years.
You will probably need to find an upgrade to the software (generally free), so contact Singer in your region.
Here is their Global Site Link if you need to find a contact locally to discuss your needs.

Pfaff Creative Customizing


Good morning,

Hoping I recall all the steps (worked for Pfaff for 10 years doing just this type of thing but found there were a lot of variables and was never able to write them all down in one place!)

If the following doesn't work, send me your phone number and I'll be happy to call and try to walk you through getting it re-installed (kim@sewingexpressions.com)

Here goes:
  1. Uninstall your Pfaff software program (either through Windows Add/Remove Programs or with the Pfaff Uninstall feature)
  2. With the dongle still connected, right click on My Computer, selectProperties, select Hardware tab, select Device Manager (assumingWindows XP if earlier version you won't see Hardware Tab - just selectDevice Manager).
  3. Locate the dongle under Universal Serial Bus Controllers (will be listed as Rainbow, Sentinal or Aladdin depending on version of dongle)
  4. Double-click the listing for your dongle, click the Driver Tab, select Uninstall. This should remove all traces of the dongle software that was previously installed.
  5. Remove dongle and re-insert in USB port. This should automatically trigger the dongle install.
  6. After dongle re-installs, right click on My Computer, select Properties, select Hardware tab, select Device Manager (assuming Windows XP if earlier version you won't see Hardware Tab - just select Device Manager).
  7. Locate the dongle under Universal Serial Bus Controllers (will be listed as Rainbow, Sentinal or Aladdin depending on version of dongle).
  8. Double-click the listing for your dongle, click the Driver Tab, select Update Driver.
  9. Make sure you're connected to the internet. A window will open - select Yes, This Time Only & follow prompts to attempt to locate newer driver. This will attempt to find the most current driver for the dongle. Depending on the version of the dongle software on your computer, it will either find a new version or tell you there is no newer one. If a newer driver available, allow it to install.
  10. Once you've finished the above to update dongle driver, close all the open windows.
  11. FINALLY, you should be able to install your Pfaff program...with no problems. LEAVE THE DONGLE INSERTED when you reinstall your customizing - even though the program tells you not to.
Rather tedious but it is necessary to remove as many traces of the previous install as possible (program and dongle drivers) before reinstalling. The key seemed to be installing the dongle BEFORE the Pfaff program, updating it and making sure it worked before trying to install Customizing.

As I indicated before, if this doesn't work, I'd be more than happy to try to walk you through - just send me a phone number and a time that would be convenient.

Crossing my fingers,
Kim

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 www.futura-support.com . 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.
