Address keeps changing

Some software my company uses needs a parallel dongle so I bought this product in order to use it. Unfortunately the address of the card keeps changing (my boss informs me) so we cant use said software. Can anyone suggest a reason and a fix?

When you say the address changes, is this dongle device connected to a parrallel adapter running on your computer network?

If so you could try going into the network settings of your device and forcing that IP address that your on to stay on that device rather than having the router assigning it to you.

The other way is to leave the computer on. That should keep the same IP address as well.

    So the driver doesn't let you put in a fixed IP address?



    Thats a first.



    Is this system hooked up to a router on a network? Some routers can assign an IP address by certain parameters such as MAC address. Usually it's up to the router to do the assigning if it is hooked up that way.



    Otherwise leaving the computer on overnight shouldn't change the IP while it is left on. Thats the best way to keep it fixed.

Product key needed


Having the product key of a software application is essential when installing and activating the software on your computer. Product keys may also be called CD keys, serial numbers or activation codes. If, for some reason, you lose the product key, or it stops functioning, you must get a new product key from the creator of the software. Most software companies work with their customers in resolving product-key issues. For example, Microsoft advises its customers to contact Microsoft Support Services in the event that a product key becomes lost or damaged.

Go to the website for the software company. Look for a heading such as "Contact Us," "Customer Service" or "Support." Get the contact information for the company, such as an email address or telephone number. Some companies require that you contact them through a web-based form on the website. Contact the company by phone or email explaining that you have lost your product key or that it is no longer working. Include as much information as you can to help them verify that you are an authentic customer. Include copies of receipts you received (email or physical copies). If you have original packaging from the product, include any relevant bar-code or version numbers. Refer to the name and email address that you used to register the product.

Unfortunately, your bank will probably never get to the end of it. It's very easy for a person to hide himself on the internet. I'd strongly recommend calling your bank, and telling them to cancel the payment - as you didn't authorize it. Most Credit Card companies will absorb the loss in these situations, and I think you'd have a good chance of success with your bank too.

I ve a mac, how can I use Bernina software



Select and install virtualization software for your MacBook Pro. You can choose from several popular virtualization packages for the Mac, including Parallels Desktop for Mac, VirtualBox and VMware Fusion. VirtualBox is a free, open source software package, while Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion are commercial software products

Install Windows within your virtualization software. You much purchase a copy of the Windows operating system if you do not already own it; it does not come with the virtualization software. Most virtualization software includes a wizard, or assistant, to guide you through the Windows installation. Windows will now run in a "virtual machine" on your MacBook Pro.

Install your Bernina Artista Embroidery Software on your virtual Windows system. You install software into the Windows virtual machine the same way you do on a physical PC.

Plug the Bernina security dongle into a USB port on your MacBook Pro. The Windows virtual machine acknowledges the dongle, and may ask you if the USB dongle is to be used with the Mac or Windows system. The dongle is a hardware device that provides copy protection for the Bernina embroidery software.

Run the Bernina Artista Embroidery Software by choosing it from the Windows Start menu

Access Device Manager and locate and double-click on Ports (COM & LPT). Right-click on the system's parallel printer port, and select the Properties command. Click the Resources tab and deselect the Use Automatic Settings check box. This enables the Setting Based On dropdown list, allowing you to choose a setting that matches the system's BIOS configuration. As you do so, keep an eye on the Conflicting device list box at the bottom of the Resources tab; you don't want to create other problems in the process.

Hello and welcome to fixya free utility. It seems that you purchased any software from the regnow and due to some reasons you were unable to instal it properly. In return you asked them for a refund policy which clearly states "
Each software company offering products through our service has their own return/refund policy. We support all return/refund policies of the software companies that we process orders for. You will need to contact the software company directly (their email address is in the emailed order confirmation) to inquire about their return/refund policy and process.
If you do not have the order confirmation, please contact us. We will be happy to provide you with the software company's contact email address and forward your request." Thus by mistake they provided you the address of fixya.com. I would like you to revert back to regnow if you insist on refund or else kindly let me know what software you purchased and what is your OS so that I can guide you further.

Parallel dongle will not work with new system that only has USB connections


The dongle only works with a standard parallel port, not a USB parallel port adapter, It may be possible that a PCI parallel adapter card will work with the dongle. Check it first with the supplier and or software supplier of Designer 1.

The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If the APIPA protocol is
disabled, the default IP address of a Brother print server is
192.0.0.192. To change it, use the printer control panel (if
applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software
or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 10 of this User’s Guide to learn how to
configure the IP address on your printer.
3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
4 Windows® 2000/XP users can print using TCP/IP using the
standard Network Printing software and IPP protocol software
built into any Windows® 2000/XP installation.if you need manual just email me at repagenserv@saipan.com or romeo_palencia@hotmail.com
