Plug in the dongle, it should recognize it and install the necessary drivers. If not, what type and model is the dongle and what device are you trying to connect it to?

How do I activate my dongle for 4D Monogramming and Vision software when it is not working?

There should be a code in the software booklet that makes the program read your dongle.

How do I activate my dongle for 4D Monogramming and Vision software when it tells me that I can't?

I don't have 4D, so this is a guess, but I do use a lot of different embroidery design software programs. That message sounds like possibly the software has not been installed. If you're positive all was completely installed, It might be a good idea to call 4D support for their advice. If you are installing on a new computer be sure the software is compatible with your operating system. You might need to uninstall and reinstall and if so this PDF for 4D Installation Instructions might help:$20to$20install$204D$20Monogram$20and$20Vision.pdf

I have purchased 5D Professional and cannot get the dongle installed, I have put the correct product activation code in and it has been recognised but will not accept that the dongle is inserted in my USB...

I purchased 5D pro and have the same problem. I contacted Viking and was told it was a known problem with no fix. I was instructed to take the dongle to my dealer to see if they can activate it.

Hi my computer will not recognise my dongle I am getting a 1402 error

You did not say what version you are installing. When I was loading Bernina version 4 your xp computer with sp2 or sp3 the dongle (security device). The bernina software will not be recognized until the driver is updated. Support told me to go to
then download HDD32.EXE
save on your desk top. follow instructions.
you also need active sync 3.8

these two items set my computer strait to connect to my Bernina 200 E with version 4.
hope this will help

I bought a husqvarna viking 3d sketch 3years ago but never used it. the dongle with the system does not work, viking have refused to replace dongle, despite the system being brand new with origional...

I'm afraid there's nothing you can do about the replacement dongle. Have you taken your software and dongle into your dealer and had them try installing it on their computer? Or if you have a laptop, take yours in and see if they can help you. It may just be a matter of downloading new dongle drivers. Do a Google search for 3D Dongle drivers - I think Aladdin has the drivers you need. Also you will need to be running XP or Vista 32-bit on your computer for 3D software to work.

Husqvarna #1+ Dongle Not working with my computer.

You probably need to install the XP drivers for the dongle. I don't have the exact website at my fingertips (brain tips?) right now, but if you visit Jan Henning's Sew Much 4 Retirement website I think she has it amongst her Tips section. I had a similar problem years ago, but solved it by putting the installation CD into the computer, not running the automatic Install, then opening the program. It then goes looking for the dongle driver on the CD. This solution does not work for everyone, some need to download the drivers off the internet.
