Question about Bernina Artista 180

2 Answers

Dongle I purchased A Bernina Artista 180 that included software. However, I was not aware of the dongle that was needed and by the time I found out about it the seller was long gone. So I have this wonderful software that I cannot fully avail myself of due to no dongle. Is there any way to get a new dongle without purchasing all new software?

Hello. No, the only way you are going to get this to work is to replace the software with new ones, as all software come with different dongle numbers. The dongle numbers are specifically for the software that you have, you can't even change dongles. Can you get in touch with the seller to give you the dongle? I have a set of Cracked software for the BERNINA ARTISTA 180 that I can copy for you for $200, which you don't need a dongle for. Email me on: lfr6@bigpond.com I have a BERNINA ARTISTA 180 as well and this is the software I run. RRP for the VERSION 3 and the CPS software is $4500.00. Thanks. Lawrence

Lost dongle bernina 180 artista version 3


Unfortunately, your dongle is like a Key that is made just for your machine. You could try contacting Bernina or the place where you bought the machine originally and ask if they can send you a replacement. I've afraid it will be very expensive though.

Good luck.

USB to Serial port cable for Bernina Artista 180


Just happen to be sitting in front a Bernina 180 at this very moment - with the connecting cable attached to a Keyspan USA-19HS Adapter. It is a current adapter available from either Keyspan (www.keyspan.com) or any number of computer retailers - physical or online. Seems to run around $30.00 just about everywhere. Auction sites may have bargain. Worked like a charm on an older XP computer as I was able to test the older software I had due to it having the necessary parallel port the the older dongle. While I am fairly certain this combination would also work on my Windows 7 computer, I am unable to test it as I have not come across a parallel adapter that will work with the older software parallel dongle. I've had other programs/peripherals that utilize usb to serial adapter (on my Windows 7) that have worked fine, so I suspect this would also be the case.

Hope this helps. If you have specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Happy stitching,
Kim

Bernina 180 usb to serial cable not working


it's in your computer control panel - you need to assign the com port to the cable - it took me a few tries.

In the long run, I bought the Editor Lite software for $120 on ebay - it comes with a USB dongle - that solved all my issues other than assigning the com port to the serial port. It all works like a charm now.

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:)

Cannot open Bernina Software - States Hasp not installed -100 -


More likely the software you have is a corrupt one or is not compatible with windows ME.
However, to be on a safe side, follow the steps :-

 1. Remove the dongle from the USB port.  2. Uninstall the software.  3. Restart the PC.  4. Download the software.
 Make sure that the software is compatible.
 Unless change the CD or download the software from some different website ( In case you are downloading it from a particular website ).
Thanks.
