I have loaded the 4D software and have communication with my Husquvarna machine through that. I communicate with my Pfaff through the old 3D software on my computer.

In this FAQ list (from PFAFF web) you find 100 times the same question and answer:
H402 My new computer does not have any serial COM ports, so how does it communicate with my Pfaff creative 7570?
You will need to obtain a USB Serial Adapter, which adds a serial port to your computer by plugging it into a USB port. Suitable adapters can be obtained from Belkin [http://www.belkin.com] and Keyspan [http://www.keyspan.com].
The following USB Serial Adapters are known to work with the Pfaff creative 7570:
• Belkin F5U103
• Keyspan USA-19QW
Please note that the Belkin F5U109 is listed as working with the Pfaff creative 2140/2144 (FAQ #H405), but it does not work the Pfaff creative 7570.

It sounds like you have it configured properly if you have the little machine and computer appearing on the display screen. I had this problem too in the beginning, file assistant doesn't use the files for the 7570 its only for some of the newer machines, use Vip customize to send the design to the machine from the file drop down menu. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately some people are having this problem when they are not properly installing the updates. It's important that when 4D is installed that you assign a particular port for your 4D dongle and always use this port when loading 4D. Have your dongle plugged in and access your configure menu. Click on Smart Update. Download updates into a file where you can find them. Follow the directions for each update. For the driver update, you must uninstall the current driver you have and then install the update for the driver. If installing the updates doesn't fix your problem, the only solution is to completely uninstall 4D and all of its components and then reinstall it. Sorry...but this has been the only way to fix it with some systems. Also, make sure your User Account Control is off before installing 4D.
