Vista unable to install Futura software

Dear, Sir/ Madam I just bought Singer Ce200 sewing & embroidery machine and have a problem installing the Futura software. Have been trying to find solution for the last two days and it has been quite a nightmare. I read hundreds of forums and feedbacks Wondered if you had an idea what the problem is and how it could be resolved! The PC I use is a actually laptop with Win Vista Home Premium. When I put the Futura cd it freezes at 100%, than I found the website which was ment to help installing it with Vista-www.futura-support.com- followed all the instructions and still can`t make it work. There is a message coming up and saying "Futura software is not installed in your computer. Install the application and repeat this set up". And that`s as much as it goes. I have tried it 5-6 times just today all the same result! Would be really greatful if you knew something more about It! I do not want to return the machine but if there is no possible solution will have to! Sincerely Verginiya

I have a CE-100 and I am getting a laptop to use with it but they all have Vista installed. Will my Singer sewing machine work with Vista.

    I have a CE100 and new laptop with Vista it will install the Futura software and the patch, but when I try to send a design to the machine, it won't send it and then you can't get the software to work again, I am not a computer literate person and after spending several hundred dollars on this machine, let alone the new computer which I bought specifically for this (and told the agent I was getting one and was never told it wouldn't run Vista until after I bought the computer -- I was told it was compatible with everything, needless to say, I am very upset. Email Singer about problems and haven't heard back from them yet. Is there a fix out there that anyone knows of?

Check for your disk size!
try to check also for the software properties labeled on the CD especially its memory and disk allocation requirements!
it may also need you to connect the machine to the computer first before installing its software!

    try this, while the computer is off... detach the USB cable of the machine from the computer. Then turn on the computer... after the OS is done or the system is now ready... plug in the USB cable of the machine. (It should automatically detect the machine and find its drivers that was already installed) But if not yet installed, do not connect yet the machine and install first the drivers and programs needed for the machine...

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

Vista unable to install Futura software


Vista is notorious for being flaky regarding embroidery software etc.....have you had advice from the Singer Dealer where you bought the machine ? Find your local dealer HERE

Singer USA Customer Support should have solutions for these things by now too and I recommend you hound them if they cannot easily suggest what to do. Vista is some years old now, not the first few weeks of release !

Vista unable to install Futura software


I found a solution that seemed to work for my setup (Vista-Futura 200): Go to the Futura support site www.futura-support.com . Choose "Service Updates" from the left-hand Menu. Choose "Quantum® FUTURA™ (CE-200) Owners running Windows XP Service Pack 2 operating system WITH one or more of the Options (AutoPunch, CrossStitch, PhotoStitch, and HyperFont) installed". Look for the bullet-point list in the explanations. It says there: "If you own the AutoPunch Option and you could not successfully install it, download the Service Update by clicking here." Select the highlighted link, download the patch and install it. Worked fine for me, I hope it helps you, too.
