Hi - What version of the File Assistant are you trying to run? The original version did not communicate and a subsequent version fixed this. It could also be a com port setting or a few other things.

If you email me your phone number, I'd be happy to call and try to walk you through some things to get it working. Takes too long to write and too many trouble-shooting steps that change from scenario to scenario to write it all here!

I worked for Pfaff for 10 years doing just these kinds of things and would be more than happy to try to help you out.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Loaded 3D Embroidery software on computer but will not recognize the dongle plugged in to the usb port. Drivers for dongle did not automatically load, went online to find a HASP file (driver I think) and...

1st try another usb port
2nd uninstall the software and plug the device in only after you have reinstalled the software and you are asked to plug it in. If it doesn't ask then install the software first and try again.

You can also right click on my computer and select manage.
then on the left side of the window select device manager, unplug and plug back the usb dongle and see if any devices appear or disappear also note any yellow ! marks. you may have to press the scan for new hardware button or right click on the window to scan for hardware changes.

I have the Digitizer Jr. software and it will not load onto my computer

You need to stop using Vista as Microsoft has not supported it since 2014. OK to use Vista for a while after 2014 because Windows Update still gave security updates for other Windows products (Word, Works, etc.). But now, Windows Update for Vista will not work anymore for anything. At least switch to Windows 7 as Microsoft will probably support it until 2020.

I can't update my creative 2 machine. I have download the file onto my usb stick still zipped is this correct

When I updated my Janome. I had to have them send me the files on a usb. Nothing I did with any of my USB sticks and I have several would work.

But it is likely that you need the files unziped before you load them to the USB stick.

My pfaff creative 4.0 will not read designs on my usb flashdrive

Confirm you have designs on your flash drive... via computer.

Then if you do, try reloading onto another "Good Quality" name brand flash drive, and try again to see if the machine will read it.

Sometimes it is not the machine, it is the drive
If that didn't work, Then, you can try this - hold the button that turns off your machine, once off, un plug the machine. then hold that button again for 60 seconds. plug it back in, turn it on, and retry.
If still nothing, take it into your local Sewing Machine Center Service Dept. To complex to assist online.

Loaded autodigitizing onto our new computer with Windows 7. Everything loaded just fine but when I try to open program it does not recognize the dongle.

There is an update for dongles and windows 7.

Info on Husqvarna Viking website -

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.

Good luck.

The USB cabble to my Creative 7570 does not fit onto my Vista computer in order to download embroidery patterns. Is there an adapter that I can get to make this all work for me? If so, where can I get this...

It rather depends where you live, but I would suggest any decent computer sales and repair store would be able to assist.......take both ends to show the issue.
