Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

2 Answers

My wife has a Viking Designer 1 sewing machine. It was purchased in the early 90"s. She has all the embrodiery software that came with the machin and it has worked all these years. Now the dongle appears to be bad and Husqavana rep at our local store has been anything but helpful. Where can I get a replacement dongle for an old machine and old software. Thanks

Replacement parts for such an old device are no longer produced - , heck, i don't even believe that the repair guys from your local store know how your machine looks like, let alone how to fix it.
I know because my grandmother owns one and the only replacement parts for it were found on other junked machines that i picked on the street.
My advice - search thru Craiglist (and similar sites) for a machine sold as such and buy it cheaply for parts.

I have a designer 1 machine that came without an embroidery unit. Can I purchase one separately from the machine?


You should be able to purchase one from a Husqvarna Viking dealer - but the Designer 1 series of machines has been superseded for a few years now, so they might be hard to come by. Try eBay too. Be warned - it will not be inexpensive!

I the floppy discs that control my Designer 1 embroidery machine


You can have replacement discs ordered from Husqvarna Viking. Visit an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for them to order the replacement discs. However, you might luck out and they have some already on hand from a scrapped machine or a trade-in. You can find your nearest dealer by visiting the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com and clicking on dealer link down the left side of the page.

Good luck.

Dongle for Designer 1 not recognized in XP or Vista


Drivers can be found on Husqvarna Viking website (search for VIP software) under "other links". Here's the direct link - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/8588_4197.htm

I don't think 3D/VIP is compatible with Vista but should be compatible with XP. Download and install latest driver per Husqvarna Viking website.

Good luck !!

What Version of VIP customizing is for Designer 1 USB stick


When you purchase the Husqvarna Viking software it comes with a code key called a "Dongle". It plugs into a usb port and "unlocks" the software. You can't just load the software and have it work without the dongle and you cannot just purchase a dongle. That software is about 3 versions old and is not being supported anymore by Viking. Their new software starts at $400 and is called 4D embroidery. Their web site shows what it can do.

Viking designer se screen is stuck in welcome screen when turned on.


You might want to try loading a firmware update onto the machine. If you have downloaded any of the updates for it in the past and saved them on your computer, try reloading the update as you would load an update normally.
