SOURCE: Bernina Embroidery Software version 4

If you have Vista 32-bit the following will work. If you have Vista 64-bit it will not work and they don't plan to fix it I'm told.

To do so:

  1. Open Windows Explorer. (use to be called My computer)
  2. Location the application executable. (if you have the CD in right click it and choose Open.)
  3. Right click the executable (setup.exe) and click the Properties option.
  4. Select the Compatibility tab.
  5. Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option. From the drop-down list, choose the operating system you ran before upgrading to Vista. (I choose XP with service pack.)
  6. Click "apply" and then "ok". That window will close.
  7. Right click the setup.exe icon again and choose to "run program as an administrator".
  8. Click OK.
  9. double click the "setup.exe' icon and it should work.

SOURCE: can you upgrade Bernina artisa designer plus

The Bernina site has the official downloads of software updates and upgrades which are available. The site needs your specific ino, which I don't have, so I am directing you to their site.
http://www.berninausa.com/news_search-n32-sUS.html

I did find several warnings regarding using other downloaded software for Bernina machines.

Good Luck!

I have installed artista v3.0 software and dongle on a machine running Windows 98. When I open the software to run it says it cannot see the security device.


Dongle will not be recognized
NOTE - If you have encountered any of the following when installing your v5 BERNINA Embroidery Software:
After the computer reboot the screen will prompt for the new dongle but will NOT recognize it.
After the computer reboot the screen will prompt AND recognize the new dongle but never ask for or recognize the older dongle.
The software installation seems to complete but when attempting to open the program you will get the tool tips for a period of time then get taken back to your Desktop.
After rebooting the PC, you get an "error 7" message in the black DOS screen.
You may try one of the following (NOTE: Disconnect ALL USB devices from the computer EXCEPT for the version 5 dongle. If doing an update, attach the old dongle only when prompted):
1. If the version 5 software is installed, go to MY COMPUTER > Local Disk C: > Program Files > BERNINA > Embroidery Software > BIN folder and in the BIN folder will be a file called 'DATAGATHER' or 'DATAGATHER.EXE'. Locate this file and double-left click it to restart the 'verifying the security device' process and should finalize the brain transfer.
2. If step 1 was not successful, you will next need to try to run the REPAIR feature from the v5 install CD. To do this, reinsert the version 5 installation cd, and choose the REPAIR feature when you are asked to make a choice. Click NEXT and YES to finalize the REPAIR and restart the computer when prompted


Also doesn't look like it will run on Windows 98. It is SOOO Old! Version 5 won't anyway.

How do I install Bernina Artista Software V5 on Windows 8?


Contrary to what Bernina has said about their software (Bernina Embroidery Software v5), that particular software CAN be installed AND ran in Windows 8 with no issues whatsoever. When you install it, it will perform normally (not go to a blue screen like Bernina says), then it will ask you to insert the dongle. After installation, go to the Bernina Embroidery icon and right click. Select troubleshoot compatibility. The computer will run a test to see what system you should run the software as. It should say Windows XP Service Pack 3. Select next. Now double click your Bernina software and it should start up fine. Hope this helped.

Bernina 180 with Firmware 2.08 - can it run DesignerPlus 5 or 6?


You will need to update the software in the machine, to a min of version 3.08 this can be done at BERNINA dealer (usually free of charge) once this is complete you designer will fully be compatible. WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR MACHINE IN TO BE UPDATE DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE THE EMBROIDERY UNIT IN AS WELL AS IT CONTAINS ITS OWN SOFTWARE

Downloading bernina


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 curveball 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 ann 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. Good luck...bushvideo

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. 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.
