Question about Husqvarna Designer I

3 Answers

I have a new Viking Designer SE Limited Edition with 4D software and USB connection. My friend has a Designer 1 that uses diskettes. She purchased some pricey designs on CD and asked me to assist her in copying them on diskettes for her machine. I am having no luck. Have tried .shv, hus, vip formats. None work. I have a portable diskette with USB which I use to test them on my machine. They are OK. Need help...am out of ideas !!

    the woman who sells the CD designs said they would work on the Designer 1 machine using the diskettes. You have to copy them to diskettes from the CD.

    the link to download says, "page cannot be found". Does the Designer 1 have it's own disk manager, or will my 4D manager system work.

Format the disk. Then try again.
You have to use the disk manager software to copy files onto the disk. Simply copy and paste will not work for disks meant to be used with Designer 1. Download it here. Take note of where you save the file so that you may access it to install after downloading.

    Apologies for the broken link. It is from H-V, so I will not know when it is fixed. As for the software, your 4D software will work to transfer files to disk.

I don't think they are copyable.Software is copyrighted and there is usually a program built into it which prevents it from being copied.Here is a link about a couple of other reasons though.I tried to copyright something myself last year.Once I researched all the laws and media pertaining to it,it answered quite a few questions for me.I constantly try to find repair manuals on many things.If it isn't in the owner's manual,it is not free due to copyright laws.Music,repair manuals,service manuals,parts manuals,software,pictures from websites,and many other things too numerous to list.That was the main issue at hand also when the big problem was people downloading music for free on the internet.Since then,there has been a much stricter watch on wha people are allowed to do.You probably won't like my answer but I am not here to lie or post false information,far from it.When I tell people about this copyright issue,I get a bad rating almost every time.I don't know if people do not just want to hear it,or if they are persistent that everything should be free,but as I said I have thoroughly researched it.It is a fact,that's all.Back in the 80's,when Phil Jackson was coaching the Bulls,they came up with 3peat and he copyrighted it.Any merchandise which is sold with that term,he is getting,or should be getting,legally,a royalty for that item.Greg

You need to reinstall them, they will be on the communication disk that came with your machine or the 4D software cd if you purchased that.

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.

You can find this information by touching the configuration icon (this looks like pliers). The item that shows you how many sewing hours is called Timer. You should know that this can be reset to 0 by anyone.

Can't update my new husqvarna diamond embroidery machine


Thanks for the response. The problem turned out to be my fault. I had my Diamond connected to my computer when I tried to install the drivers. As soon as I disconnected it, the drivers all installed and everything is fine.

Dongle issue


The Designer SE software does not use a dongle. If you are attempting a "Smart Update" on the Designer SE and it asks if you use a dongle, just say no and the update on the machine will run.
If you have 3D or 4D software, it uses the dongle and it will be USB. Download the latest driver for your software from the Husqvarna Viking website. The link is through the homepage at Husqvarnaviking.com/us . Click links on the left side of the screen for 4D Software, Help & Updates, and Other Useful Software at the bottom of the page. This will have the latest 3D driver. 4D will require the latest update to the software and a firmware upgrade to the dongle. Run Smart Update on the software and then get the firmware update that is directly below the 3D HASP driver on the Other Useful Software page.
