Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

3 Answers

New computer, old software.

I have a new computer with Vista 64 bit processor. I'm trying to install Husqvarna 1.31 on the computer as I still wish to continue using the Husqvarna 1+ sewing machine I have. I used the Program Compatibility Wizard and it appears to install correctly. When I try and open the application I'm getting the message "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running." Suggestions?

Those programs won't work on VISTA. Even if you install 3D on a VISTA system, you need hasp drivers and more. Your best bet would be to buy a 4D. Good luck! P

Is 1.31 a version of Husqvarna software? That has to be close to 20 years old. I purchased System 5 somewhere around 1990.

You may get newer versions of the software that can still be used with the #1+. The latest version, 4D Embroidery, can be used with a Reader/Writer box with the #1+.
Now I seriously doubt that your new 64bit computer has a parallel port for your Reader/Writer box to connect to. And, there are no drivers for the parallel box with a 64bit operating system. But, Husqvarna has a USB Reader/Writer available.
New software and a modern Reader/Writer will work with your modern computer and allow you to use your good old reliable machine.
Contact your local dealer. Hopefully, they will be able to assist you. If not, post here and I can tell you what to request from them.

Singer 250 can not run 86 on 64 platform


There is an update to give an x64 driver for the Singer CE-250 that will let you run on an x64. With the sewing machine not connected to the computer, install the software that came with the machine. Click OK at all of the "cannot run x86 build on a 64-bit OS" messages. When it is done, install the software from http://futura-support.com/products/ce-250/software . (The second one is for XP, Vista, and Win7 versions.) Accept the unverified driver (install anyway). After this completes, then connect the sewing machine to the USB port on the computer.

Similar patches exist for the CE-200.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the version number of your software. I know with Husqvarna Viking's 3D Embroidery, there are versions that can be upgraded to work with x64 and versions that are not patchable.

I bought a new computer with Windows 8 & now my dongle is not recognized, why?


I tried the Husqvarna Viking dongle drivers for 4D VIP Customizing software on a new Windows 8.1 system, but nothing worked. (It worked fine on my old Vista system). After a few weeks of frustration, I found this site : http://www.safenet-inc.com/support_and_downloads/Download_Drivers/Sentinel_Drivers/.
I downloaded the Sentinel Driver v7.5.8 (they work for Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/2008/2012/Vista & Windows 7&8 (32 bit and 64 bit)), installed it, restarted my computer, and everything worked like a charm.
Somebody should tell Husqvarna about those drivers...

3D can be made to work with Windows 7 - I have it working just fine on my 64-bit Win.7. Go to http://www.sewmuch4retirement.com/tips.html

I have recently bought a new computer and i installed the software, but the machine will not recognise the computer, can it be installed on computer with the new windows 7 or do i need an update??


Yes, it can be installed on Windows 7. Check the Futura support sight at www.Futura-support.com and look on the right hand side under downloads. There's a download listed for CE150/250/350, etc, that applies to XP 32 & 64 bit, Vista and Windows 7 32 & 64 bit. Follow the directions CAREFULLY! If this doesn't work for you, I've posted a set of instructions under CE100 solutions for running the CE100 software on Windows Vista/7 by installing a Virtual Machine software on Windows 7 that works regardless of the situation.

The update should work for you perfectly, however. Just make sure you uninstall the Futura software and reboot your machine BEFORE you do anything else and follow the instructions from the website carefully! Good luck!

I have the Husq Pro software for my #1+ machine and I bought a new computer with 64 bit. I can't get it installed. What do I do?


Info on Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

When installing the 4D Embroidery System onto Windows 7 computers, the dongle drivers may not initially work correctly, as the 4D Embroidery System installs a set of dongle drivers which were created before Windows 7.
Download and install the latest dongle drivers prior to installing the 4D Embroidery System. Failure to do this, may result in the "Dongle driver not found (E0009)" when you try to open the 4D modules.
Please follow the steps below to install the latest dongle drivers BEFORE installing the 4D Embroidery System
  1. Download and install the latest Dongle Drivers.
  2. Insert your 4D Dongle.
  3. Install your 4D Embroidery System software (and all updates).
  4. Open your 4D Embroidery System software to confirm that your dongle is working correctly.
If you installed the 4D Embroidery System software before installing the latest dongle drivers and if you experience problems such as the error message "Unable to start hasplms service..."; download and install the latest Dongle Drivers.

Link to dongle drivers - http://www.vsmsoftware.net/downloads/HASP/haspusersetup.exe

Good luck.

My grandmother gave me a Huspvarna viking #1+ and


That software won't work on Vista. I wish I had better news for you but the only way you are going to work with your #1+ will be to either buy the new software or find an old computer with windows 95.

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.

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

Can't get computer and embroidery machine to connect via USB. Computer doesn't recognize embroidery machine. (Husqvarna Designer Diamond) I also have a new DELL laptop.


If your using Windows Vista, you have to have the multi user account in the off postioin. Also if you had 3D embroidery software and you upgraded to 4D software you have to be sure to uninstall the 32 bit drivers from the 3d for the 4d to work properly.

You do have to install the communication software that came with the diamond also. It won't communicate through the 3d or 4d only.

Changing from windows XP to Vista


Unfortunately there is no fix for users of version 3 who have upgraded to vista.
The version 4 of Artista software does work in Vista. I have tested this and it appears to me to be related to the software "dongle" protections.
