For old models CE100/200/200E Futura software could be upgraded to version 2.5 (ask you Singer supplier), since version windows 7 is supported.
For newer models CE150/250/350 SES1000/2000 software can be updated normally, since version windows 7 is supported.

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.

Future CE-250 software compatible with Windows 7?

I just bought a new Futura CE250 & had the same problem.

I fixed my "can not run an x86 build of this utility on x64 platform" by visiting the futura support website & downloading a service update. I have a computer with Windows 7 installed.

The website is

Is the Singer CE-1oo Futura Windows Vista compatible? Also, can you put a #1 card in it to do the alphabet?

No it's not, All Singer futura users should be intitled to a 100% refund, or Singer should install new chips in the c-100's for former users. This is obsurb! you invest in the machine, and when the software upgrades itself, you are unable to use your machine. This is so awful

Singer CE0100 Futura connection error....

Hi I had the same problem sent question to Singer and this was their reply

"Do you have Vista 32-bit or Vista 64-bits? Unfortunately the CE-100/200 machine will not be compatible with either Vista 64-bit systems or the newest Windows 7 computers. The CE-100/200 will only be compatible with Windows 98 through Vista 32-bit operating systems.

This appears to be a hardware issue and not something that we will be able to create a patch to correct. Drivers necessary for 64-bit operating systems are not compatible with the CE-100/200 machines." so I guess we are SOL

My software won't run on the vista windows

I had the same problem. I called a singer service center and he told me that was a major issue with the software made for Vista. I was determined to find a solution and finally found a patch. Here you go:

If you have Vista 32-bit the following will work. If you have Vista 64-bit it will not work and they don't plan to fix it I'm told.

To do so:
  1. Open Windows Explorer. (use to be called My computer)
  2. Location the application executable. (if you have the CD in right click it and choose Open.)
  3. Right click the executable (setup.exe) and click the Properties option.
  4. Select the Compatibility tab.
  5. Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option. From the drop-down list, choose the operating system you ran before upgrading to Vista. (I choose XP with service pack.)
  6. Click "apply" and then "ok". That window will close.
  7. Right click the setup.exe icon again and choose to "run program as an administrator".
  8. Click OK.
  9. double click the "setup.exe' icon and it should work.

After reading through your problem, I began doing some research. You are correct with your initial assumption. Singer at this time, does not support Vista 64bit Operating System. They will support it on Vista 32bit, but even then you would have to install it in what is called, "Compatability Mode." Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to have many vendors not have their software work on 64bit systems. Many programs/applications were only written to work on 32bit systems. Ocassionally, you will have a system work on 64bit, by almost pure accident. Here's the link for the system requirements on the Singer Quantum Futura.
For the plain futura system, you can go to:
click on the Futura System Requirements.
If you would like to attempt to install to Vista x64. Try following the compatability mode for 32bit Vista. read the "Click here" to read the detailed installation instructions for installing on a Vista system

Best of Luck.

Futura 200ce trouble

It may be possible to run the Autopunch software in Compatability mode rather than the native Vista.. If you right click on the shortcut to Hyper/Auto punch and choose properties and left click on that. You should then see a tab at the top of that screen marked Compatibility. There should be a check box and a pulldown for Various versions of Windows. Check the box and select Windows XP Service pack 2. You MAY also need to check the box for Run as an Administrator. If this fails , then Im afraid you need to contact Singer to see if there is Vista Driver. If nothing is forthcomming, then downgrading to XP is the final option, (System will run faster too -) ) Cheers. Pete

Don't buy computers with Windoze Vista on them, go to your local shop and get them to build you one with XP on it. XP will be around for a long time at least to 2014. Vista is junk, always will be.
