No, you need a dongle to attach the computer to your machine. You can probably get a replacement dongle but will most likely need to have a technician set it up for you.

I was just given a 180e embroidery machine ( I am a total novice) and I am not sure how to connect the dongle and get designs that are in my computer. Thank you so much cat

I am not exactly sure of this particular model. But the dongle should just plug into the computers port on the back of the computer.

I'm looking for a purple dongle for my vip embroidery software.

Contact the manufacturer of the software. If it is an illegal copy of course you are out of luck. If you have lost your dongle, they would LIKELY jhave you ship your original disk back for a replacement with a matching dongle. I would expect to pay a fee for the lost part.

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

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 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.
