Have you tried the Bernina website, they have various software downloads there for the embroidery software. Under Suppport, Downloads and Manuals.

Is this what you needed?

My Bernina Artista 180E no longer works with updated Windows. Is it possible to upgrade so that I can still use my 180E and not have to buy another machine?


Just use the free download software from Bernina called Artlink. I used it along with a USB to Serial converter cable to connect to the machine. Works wonderfully. Allows me to still use my old Artista designer software if I want to on an older machine and then when I want to actually transfer the designs I use the laptop with the USB cable.

Artista embroidery program version 3.0 and Windows 7


For other versions and probably yours...
You'll need the following service packs to use BERNINA Embroidery Software V5 aand under Windows® 7 / Windows Vista™ operating system:
  • Service Pack 2 for BERNINA Embroidery Software V5 (V5.0W)
  • Aurora driver for 64-bit Windows® operating systems
  • Latest dongle driver
  • EConPC 3.1 & ADX 7.14
You'll find them at www.bernina.com\downloads
Hope this helped.

I need to convert my parellel port dongle to USB


I have the same problem...V3 software. have not heard of an adapter. The software wouldn't work with Windows XP or Vista anyway. I upgraded to Editor plus V5 but have kept my old Designer plus on an ancient laptop so I can transfer old patterns. You will also find that your new laptop doesn't have a serial port to accomodate the old cable to bernina 180. Unfortunately it's always the case with updating a PC. Everything else has to follow! My advice, get hold of an old laptop:)

I have the same problem my windows xp and Bernia emb.


I kept an older, XP laptop with paralell port just for embroidery and machine knitting software programs. Bernina, etc, never have up to date drivers unless you buy the current stuff - very poorly supported considering the costs involved.

At one point, the Hasp4 driver upgrade was posted on the bernina site and on the alladin site - 2004 o4 2005. The alladin (sp?) site still has hasp4 drivers available for download, but they are newer, and I don't know if they will work for you.

I will try and find my older hasp4 upgrade, although my searches have produced nothing so far, and I am not sure exactly what the file was called.

Hi, Unfortunately any of Bernina's software that is older than Version 5 , will not work with Vista. There are some software patches available on the berninausa.com web site, but there is nothing out there that will help you if you have any Version 4 software or older. Microsoft really through out a curve ball to everyone with VISTA as there is a lot of software out there that will not work in that operating system.
Actually the lowest cost solution would be to get a nice used computer that runs Windows XP. You do not need a super fast, state of the art computer to run embroidery programs.
I bought a nice used computer at a yard sale for $10.00 and it even came with the XP install disk. I replaced the hard drive just because they do wear out after a few years, installed XP in it and that computer is now in my wife's sewing room and it is only used for her embroidery work.
You might have a computer repair shop in your area where you can buy an older XP computer that has been reconditioned. The few dollars you would spend to get an older computer would cost you far less than buying new Bernina Version 5 software. It is EXPENSIVE! Good luck...bushvideo

Version 2 was made back in the Windows 98 days but it should install in a XP computer but you are out of luck with Vista.

Connection problem with computer to sewing machine and reader/writer


Hello,
It is not true that the 180 is not compatible with new software.
I'm owning a artista 180 from 2002 and just installed the software designer V5+ on a laptop with windows vista.
The only problem was that there was no serial port on the laptop, now I have a new cable with USB ans serial output and the software works very well !!
When you contact Bernina you will get the same answer.

greetings Carla
