Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
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.
