If you have the original 3D file manager disk, the drivers are on there. In XP, With the sewing machine unplugged from the computer, insert the disk in the cd drive and explore the disk. Copy the "drivers" folder to your desktop. Plug in the Pfaff 2140/2170 to the usb port. Windows will ask for a driver disk. browse to the drivers folder on your desktop and open it, windows will highlight the driver it needs and click "OK". This worked on my wife's 2140 upgraded to 2170 software and you must always use the same usb port, or go through this routing again.

whatever operating system the program was running successfully.

Then click Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then clickTroubleshooting. Under Programs, clickRun programs made for previous versions of Windows.
2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup
file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The
troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi
file name extension.
If you run Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate version, install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspx) and execute your software in Windows XP.
If you run Windows 7 Home Premium, try VirtualBox (www.virtualbox.org) or VMware Player (www.vmware.com) and install a separate copy of Windows XP (either Home Edition or Professional) for that purpose.You can find virtualization software free of charge that will run on Windows 7 Home Premium.
Hope this helps.
