Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

Software will not work without the dongle. Dongle went with debris from the ceiling to a landfill. Cannot get a new one unless I have pieces or old non working dongle. Do not think I should have to

During the clean up and fixing of a fallen ceiling the dongle for my Husqvarna Pro software got lost. I need a new dongle, or the software will not work. I have been told I have to rebuy the whole software package to the tune of $2100 to get a new dongle! This was not software I intended to buy even once a year. There has to be some way I can buy a new one without spending that kind of money a second time.

If you have the original receipt or can get one from your dealer, Husqvarna will replace your dongle for about $200, if they still support the version you have. I think they still support 3D software dongles. If its Just the "Pro" software that's about 10 years old, they simply won't have any dongles to help you with. The $2100 price is also for the whole new software package, not just a dongle. They have made many, many improvements in the software, if your's was the original Pro series.

I am looking for a replacement dongle for my VIP customizing software. My old dongle was damaged and no longer works. My software is from around 2000, however I have been asked to transfer some desi


You should contact the software vendor. They should be happy to replace your non-working dongle for a new one, even for a very old software version. They may have to charge you for the replacement dongle, but it should be much less than the cost of new software.

If they balk, know that there are now many different software options out there for much less than the typical dongle-enabled packages. Don't pay $1200 for an 'upgrade' if you can get a different package for $99. Search Google for 'embroidery software' and you'll see a lot of choices.

Loaded 3D Embroidery software on computer but will not recognize the dongle plugged in to the usb port. Drivers for dongle did not automatically load, went online to find a HASP file (driver I think) and...


1st try another usb port
2nd uninstall the software and plug the device in only after you have reinstalled the software and you are asked to plug it in. If it doesn't ask then install the software first and try again.

You can also right click on my computer and select manage.
then on the left side of the window select device manager, unplug and plug back the usb dongle and see if any devices appear or disappear also note any yellow ! marks. you may have to press the scan for new hardware button or right click on the window to scan for hardware changes.

How can I send designs from my PC to my Toyota 830 embroidery machine when my Pantograms software/hardware is no longer working?


Some of the Pantograms software programs require a USB dongle connected to the computer. However, the driver for this dongle has to be installed before you install the software or connect the dongle. I suspect you may not have installed the driver or the dongle is missing.

Assuming that the dongle is connected:
Close your embroidery software program and all of the Pantograms software, including the Network C software, on your computer and remove the USB device. Put the software install CD into your machine's optical drive. (If your new machine doesn't have an optical drive, get a USB optical drive or copy the files from the CD to a 1GB+ USB flash drive at another computer with an optical drive.) If Windows XP starts the autorun routine for the CD, click Exit. Then double-left click on My Computer to launch File Explorer. Go to the CD drive (or USB drive if you used the work-around) and double-click on it. Open the Rainbow Drivers folder and then open the XP folder. Double click on the program: setup.exe . Choose Complete install as the program executes. Then close File Explorer when the install is done. Now insert the USB dongle and follow the on-screen message about New Hardware found to install the Rainbow driver from C: .

If you do not see the New Hardware found message, try putting the dongle into a different USB port. (Make sure to avoid USB hubs - they can add to USB device issues.) If the dongle doesn't work at any port, you may need to use a different method. There is a flash reader available for connecting a USB flash drive to the Toyota 830 here: http://www.plrelectronics.com/lab/usb_reader.php . (Scroll down to the Toyota machine section. This isn't cheap but it is cheaper than some of the newer embroidery software packages.)

I hope this helps.

How can I use the software for my Pfaff 2124 without a dongle ?


You can't. The dongle is a security key that allows your software to work. Sorry

I need a driver for a husquvarna 3D reader/writer card, where can I find one


Info on Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

When installing the 4D Embroidery System onto Windows 7 computers, the dongle drivers may not initially work correctly, as the 4D Embroidery System installs a set of dongle drivers which were created before Windows 7.
Download and install the latest dongle drivers prior to installing the 4D Embroidery System. Failure to do this, may result in the "Dongle driver not found (E0009)" when you try to open the 4D modules.
Please follow the steps below to install the latest dongle drivers BEFORE installing the 4D Embroidery System
  1. Download and install the latest Dongle Drivers.
  2. Insert your 4D Dongle.
  3. Install your 4D Embroidery System software (and all updates).
  4. Open your 4D Embroidery System software to confirm that your dongle is working correctly.
If you installed the 4D Embroidery System software before installing the latest dongle drivers and if you experience problems such as the error message "Unable to start hasplms service..."; download and install the latest Dongle Drivers.

I have a reader-writer box for a Viking Rose machine that is missing the dongle. Is there any place I could get just the dongle?


The dongle is only available with the software when you buy it. The dongle alone doesn't run the reader/writer box. The dongle is the code key for the software that allows you to send designs to the reader/writer. So purchasing new software (which also gets you the new dongle) is what you'll need to do if you want to send designs to the programmable card. Another issue you may have is that the older reader /writer box that uses a parallel port hook up, doesn't work with the new software. So if you have an old reader /writer, you'll also need a new usb reader / writer box. The new reader / writer also comes with a new programmable card.

What Version of VIP customizing is for Designer 1 USB stick


When you purchase the Husqvarna Viking software it comes with a code key called a "Dongle". It plugs into a usb port and "unlocks" the software. You can't just load the software and have it work without the dongle and you cannot just purchase a dongle. That software is about 3 versions old and is not being supported anymore by Viking. Their new software starts at $400 and is called 4D embroidery. Their web site shows what it can do.

Dongle


I believe that the information that you have been given is correct. The VIP dongle is no longer available.
As for the second part of the question, do you have a damaged dongle or has it been lost completely? If it has been lost, there is no way to replace it without buying a new software package.

Dongle


Hello. No, the only way you are going to get this to work is to replace the software with new ones, as all software come with different dongle numbers. The dongle numbers are specifically for the software that you have, you can't even change dongles. Can you get in touch with the seller to give you the dongle? I have a set of Cracked software for the BERNINA ARTISTA 180 that I can copy for you for $200, which you don't need a dongle for. Email me on: lfr6@bigpond.com I have a BERNINA ARTISTA 180 as well and this is the software I run. RRP for the VERSION 3 and the CPS software is $4500.00. Thanks. Lawrence
