Question about Singer CE-100 Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

Software not opening with Singer Futura on Windows XP

Just a note for people with Windows XP using the software for Singer Quantum Futura CE 200. I could not open the program, called a computer repair person, spent lots of money, restored my computer and it still would not work. I just happened to call the store where I bought the machine and "Oh, other people have been also calling about this". Well it turns out that the only problems was that Windows XP's new automatic updates do not support the software for opening the futura program. I had to just TURN OFF the automatic updates and it worked like a charm. $500 later and losts of frustration. I hope I might prevent others from going through this. Jonebone I have the Futura CE 100 and have tried to install the HyperFont with negative results. After trying the installation the original Futura software won't open. Please Help! Thanks

    I have this problem with my CE200 futura software and windows XP. Earlier today I saw details on how to remove an XP security update to fix the problem. I did this and the software did launch. After restarting my computer I having this problem again. The security update has not been reinstalled. I saw that someone else had posted additional information to prevent a reoccurance. I logged back in to the site, but I can not locate this information. Any help ?

Bit out of my league can I suggest you talk to a computer expert.
My limited knowledge tells me while trying to update, your previous software package has been corrupted.

My embroidery (Singer Quantum XL6000) requires the Windows XP and lower on a computer to acquire additional patterns, will it work with Windows 7?


Mine works with Vista. :)
Just install the XP patch (futura-support.com/downloads/patch.htm) and tell Windows 7 to run the software in XP mode.

I have windows 7 and the futura software will not load into my singer quantum 200. I had no problems with my old computer which had windows xp. is there an updated futura software? Please help


Yes, there is. Go to http://www.futura-support.com/downloads/ce150.html. Read the instructions VERY carefully. You will need to have the 2.5 Futura upgrade, which is available for $99 at Jenny's Sewing http://cart.jennys-sewing-studio.com/.

In case you do have your old version of Windows XP lying around and don't care to spend the money on the upgrade, there is another alternative, though it does take a few more steps. But I use it currently on my machine to run my Futura and it works beautifully. It's available at http://www.fixya.com/support/r8955271-use_machine_windows_7_or_vista and will allow you to run any old XP software on a Vista or Windows 7 machine, but only if you have your old Windows XP software available.

Either way, be sure you follow the instructions carefully. With the upgrade, I have two friends who I've upgraded their software to run their Futura's this way and they both are working fine. As I said, I use the 2nd way and have been for month's. Good luck!
