I admit I did not think that VIP Customizing worked on Vista at all, but I now know that some people have got it going. Have you searched the www.sewmuch4retirement.com website (the late Jan Henning's website, which is an absolute gold mine of information for Husqvarna and Pfaff machines)? The other solution might be to partitition your hard drive and run Win XP on one partitition, and use that to install and run VIP Customizing. There are also Yahoo Groups specializing in Husqvarna machines and products. These groups have a lot of members with a wide range of machines, software and experience. I'm sure there is someone out there with a similar problem and someone else with the answer.

I bought a new computer with Windows 8 & now my dongle is not recognized, why?


I tried the Husqvarna Viking dongle drivers for 4D VIP Customizing software on a new Windows 8.1 system, but nothing worked. (It worked fine on my old Vista system). After a few weeks of frustration, I found this site : http://www.safenet-inc.com/support_and_downloads/Download_Drivers/Sentinel_Drivers/.
I downloaded the Sentinel Driver v7.5.8 (they work for Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/2008/2012/Vista & Windows 7&8 (32 bit and 64 bit)), installed it, restarted my computer, and everything worked like a charm.
Somebody should tell Husqvarna about those drivers...

If you have the disc to install the program if should also install the dongle automatically. I just loaded my old copy 2 weeks ago and it was all done with that one disc. You have to install the software BEFORE plugging the dongle...

I'm looking how to put the sample fonts from the free floppies into the program to use on my designs. Disk Manager only does designs and customizer won't recognize the fonts directly off the disc.

I'm looking for a purple dongle for my vip embroidery software.


Contact the manufacturer of the software. If it is an illegal copy of course you are out of luck. If you have lost your dongle, they would LIKELY jhave you ship your original disk back for a replacement with a matching dongle. I would expect to pay a fee for the lost part.

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 !!

I made a design on customizing plus in the vip format and downloaded it to a floppy disk. When I put the floppy disk into my Designer I, it said the disk was empty. How can I get a design from Customizing...


The Designer 1 will not read a .hus file directly from a floppy disk. The file should be written to the floppy disk through "disk manager". This will convert many different stitch file formats, including .hus and .vip, to the .shv format required by the Designer 1.
If you happen to look at the files on the floppy after disk manager creates it, you will see one or two other files. Those are the magical ones that make the machine read the .shv's.
Disk manager will allow you to select multiple designs to write to the disk by selecting the blue camera icon and then clicking on the designs you want from the proper directory. Then, write to the disk.

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.

Husqvarna #1+ Dongle Not working with my computer.


You probably need to install the XP drivers for the dongle. I don't have the exact website at my fingertips (brain tips?) right now, but if you visit Jan Henning's Sew Much 4 Retirement website I think she has it amongst her Tips section. I had a similar problem years ago, but solved it by putting the installation CD into the computer, not running the automatic Install, then opening the program. It then goes looking for the dongle driver on the CD. This solution does not work for everyone, some need to download the drivers off the internet.

If you are using the 3D version of the Husqvarna Viking software, you may need to download the latest dongle drivers.
If it is 4D, you may need to update the dongle and you can do it yourself.
Check for support at:
http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/8588.htm or go to your local Husqvarna Viking dealer.

If you are trying to run 3D on a Vista computer it can be a little complicated. Let me know if this is the case.
