Hi,
Three options:
1). Try another USB port on the PC / Laptop. I have discovered that some USB ports mess up sometimes.
2). Check if you have a firewall software on this computer (some of those that normally pops up with messages at the bottom-right of your screen saying things like 'Allow, Block, etc". If you have one of such, you may want to go into the setting and disable firewall briefly and test your Dongle again. If it now works, then Allow the Dongle in the firewall settings.
3). Uninstall the Dongle. Shutdown and restart your computer. Go to Program files and delete the folder where the program was installed. Then use the CD that came with your Dongle to do an install. Then finally connect your Dongle. Should work.

How do you solve a Bluetooth Dongle Problems?


<p>Bluetooth wireless technology allows many devices to connect wirelessly to computers, keyboards, mice, speakers and even other computers. Most desktop computers come with Bluetooth pre-installed adapters, allowing many to purchase and install an external Bluetooth dongle adapter. These dongles are usually connected to an available USB port and automatically installs without much fuss, but there is the possibility of going wrong, because usually when people and computers interact. Fortunately, hiccups are usually quite easy to solve. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Unplug the dongle on the computer using the "Wizard Safely Remove Hardware". Look for an icon in the Windows taskbar that looks like a USB connector with a green circle and check mark next to it. Wait a few minutes, and then reinsert it. This will cause the drivers are loaded on your computer and your problem. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Restart the computer; make sure the dongle is working properly. Some drivers need to restart your computer before working properly. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Download and install the latest drivers for your Bluetooth dongle. If you are unsure of where to get it, Windows can do it for you. Open "Control Panel" menu "Start," click "Hardware and Sound" and then "Device Manager". Expand the Bluetooth Radios section "from the list that appears, right click on the Bluetooth adapter, and select" Update Driver ". Select" Search automatically for updated driver software. " <br /> <p><br /> <p> <p>4. Then remove, reinstall the Bluetooth dongle. Right-click on the Bluetooth dongle "Bluetooth Radios" from the "Device Manager" and select "Uninstall." Remove the dongle from your computer, restart the computer. Connect the dongle back and reinstall drivers for Windows.

My laptop which has windows 7 on it does not recognize mmy dongle


there is an update for windows 7 and dongles at the husqvarna viking website.

From 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.

If you are still unable to get it to work, visit your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Most stores have staff who are eager to help but you might want to call for an appointment

Dongle won't work with 4D Embroidery


Unfortunately some people are having this problem when they are not properly installing the updates. It's important that when 4D is installed that you assign a particular port for your 4D dongle and always use this port when loading 4D. Have your dongle plugged in and access your configure menu. Click on Smart Update. Download updates into a file where you can find them. Follow the directions for each update. For the driver update, you must uninstall the current driver you have and then install the update for the driver. If installing the updates doesn't fix your problem, the only solution is to completely uninstall 4D and all of its components and then reinstall it. Sorry...but this has been the only way to fix it with some systems. Also, make sure your User Account Control is off before installing 4D.

Pfaff Creative Customizing


Good morning,

Hoping I recall all the steps (worked for Pfaff for 10 years doing just this type of thing but found there were a lot of variables and was never able to write them all down in one place!)

If the following doesn't work, send me your phone number and I'll be happy to call and try to walk you through getting it re-installed (kim@sewingexpressions.com)

Here goes:
  1. Uninstall your Pfaff software program (either through Windows Add/Remove Programs or with the Pfaff Uninstall feature)
  2. With the dongle still connected, right click on My Computer, selectProperties, select Hardware tab, select Device Manager (assumingWindows XP if earlier version you won't see Hardware Tab - just selectDevice Manager).
  3. Locate the dongle under Universal Serial Bus Controllers (will be listed as Rainbow, Sentinal or Aladdin depending on version of dongle)
  4. Double-click the listing for your dongle, click the Driver Tab, select Uninstall. This should remove all traces of the dongle software that was previously installed.
  5. Remove dongle and re-insert in USB port. This should automatically trigger the dongle install.
  6. After dongle re-installs, right click on My Computer, select Properties, select Hardware tab, select Device Manager (assuming Windows XP if earlier version you won't see Hardware Tab - just select Device Manager).
  7. Locate the dongle under Universal Serial Bus Controllers (will be listed as Rainbow, Sentinal or Aladdin depending on version of dongle).
  8. Double-click the listing for your dongle, click the Driver Tab, select Update Driver.
  9. Make sure you're connected to the internet. A window will open - select Yes, This Time Only & follow prompts to attempt to locate newer driver. This will attempt to find the most current driver for the dongle. Depending on the version of the dongle software on your computer, it will either find a new version or tell you there is no newer one. If a newer driver available, allow it to install.
  10. Once you've finished the above to update dongle driver, close all the open windows.
  11. FINALLY, you should be able to install your Pfaff program...with no problems. LEAVE THE DONGLE INSERTED when you reinstall your customizing - even though the program tells you not to.
Rather tedious but it is necessary to remove as many traces of the previous install as possible (program and dongle drivers) before reinstalling. The key seemed to be installing the dongle BEFORE the Pfaff program, updating it and making sure it worked before trying to install Customizing.

As I indicated before, if this doesn't work, I'd be more than happy to try to walk you through - just send me a phone number and a time that would be convenient.

Crossing my fingers,
Kim
