Xl400 futura software won't work on windows xp

I owned an XL-400, and now own an XL-550 and Quintet, which all run on the same software. Could you be more specific about the problem you're having?

I have a feeling that you received the basic Futura software, as well as a second CD with the add-on software like AutoPunch, and THAT software refuses to install, giving you a message that the basic Futura software hasn't been installed. It has, but XP has not yet installed the drivers into Windows. What you need to do is after installing the basic Software, you need to plug the machine into the computer and turn it on. You will get a message, "Installing new Hardware." Bring up the Futura program once and then close it, and NOW you will be able to install the add-on software.

Use Your Machine with Windows 7 or Vista!

First,there's a Windows 7 update at on lefthand side,then on CE100/150/250/350, etc, etc.Follow directions CAREFULLY.First, be sure the uninstall ALL Futura software you've attempted to install & reboot your PC.
If for some reason this doesn't solve you're problem,
YOUR PC RUNS WINDOWS 7 PRO OR ABOVE If you've Windows 7 Professional or Above,solution to running any XP software is fairly easy. Go to your Windows 7 system & language, follow ALL instructions, & Microsoft will take you through to running XP mode on your system! If you've still a problem with the USB cable being recognized,be sure you're plugging it into BACK of the PC, not through a hub or one of the front ports.The program for the embroidery machine & the cable require more power than these allow, a technical point Singer doesn't seem to be aware of.You should be fine to install the machine's software & run it from within the XP mode now.YOUR PC RUNS WINDOWS 7 HOME, STARTER OR VISTA Unfortunately, you'll need to have a CD of Windows XP for this,no way getting around it. Hopefully, you have a copy of it lying around,or a family member,neighbor or friend who does Doesn't matter if it's XP Pro or Home.This solution is a bit more complicated,but you can get there.You're going to download a free & SAFE software,VmWare Player.The download requires you to register, but there's no cost, it's updated regularly to keep it safe & has been thoroughly checked out by a lot of experts.It's available at in required information,follow instructions from the email you're sent, & download. Normally,software will be downloaded to "Downloads" folder unless you download elsewhere.Before you do anything else,place the Windows XP CD in CD drive.Make sure you've the registration # ready.Now go to "Downloads" folder, double click on VmWare installation file(Vmware-player-etc,) & follow instructions to install.Once that's installed & you reboot your PC, double-click VmWare icon on the desktop.It'll open up a Welcome screen.Click "Create a New Virtual Machine."Next window will automatically show under installer disc "Windows XP (Pro or Home" detected." Just click next.Enter XP product key & keep entering required info in BLANK spots in the screens. ANY spot filled in LEAVE ALONE.Leave PC alone-process'll take about 20minutes.Once it's done,VmWare Player will launch Tools Installer to integrate virtual XP with your PC.It may have to download or update tools-if you see yellow banner at bottom of window,click Update Tools or Install Tools.Tools will download & install,thou you may have to approve prompt or 2.You'll be able to click between folders on your systems to copy & paste your designs back & forth.I strongly suggest whatever AntiVirus software you use you also install on XP-it'll look for updates on internet & will be subject to any viruses out there.Make sure you use any firewall,too,if you use something other than XP;s(you'll know if you do).Now-close VmPlayer completely. Don't restart it, close it-then reopen it.Get a message at the bottom that USB device connections are disabled?We've one more step before installing embroidery software.USB DEVICE CONNECTIONS DISABLED OR USB ARBITATION SERVICEFAILS/TERMINATED OR DEVICE ATTACHED TO THE SYSTEM IS NOT FUNCTIONING.Arggggh! One more thing?Okay, this is the technical part.You've got an AMD processor,not an Intel,in your PC.Congrats on a smart purchase.VmPlayer has a conflict with it.What you'll do may seem scary, but it's simple-& there's a backup if anything goes wrong.JUSTDOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING YOU DO BEFORE YOU DO IT.OK.You're going into an area that's supposedly forbidden-nonsense. Make a backup, be careful,& understand others who know what they're doing have checked these instructions.And my PC works fine WEEKS after I've done this!First, let's make a back up.Click the Start icon in lower left hand side.See that blank line on the bottom just begging for something to be typed into it?Type "regedit" & hit ENTER.Click on FILE, EXPORT.Select DESKTOP on right, name file REG BACKUP & click SAVE.Now you've made full backup of registry so if anything goes wrong you can goright back into "regedit",go to FILE, IMPORT & select file.See?Easy.Now. In Registry Editor screen that you've opened, 1. ClickHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControlClass(36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8065-444553540000).2. In right hand panel, if UpperFilters exists, delete it.YES,delete it.3. Go toHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServices.4. Delete the usbfilter string.5. Close registry6. You'll want to go to Start,then Computer.Double Click on C, then WindowsSystem 32/Drivers. Scroll down to fileusbfilter.sys & delete it.Now reboot your PC.FINALLY-REINSTALL YOUR EMBROIDERY SOFTWARE ACCORDING TO THEORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS FROM YOUR MANUFACTURER.I hope this helps everyone!

My embroidery (Singer Quantum XL6000) requires the Windows XP and lower on a computer to acquire additional patterns, will it work with Windows 7?

Mine works with Vista. :)
Just install the XP patch ( and tell Windows 7 to run the software in XP mode.

I have a ce-100 futura sewing machine that will not work with windows 7 what do i need to do to fix this problem

The Futura software and the machine drivers exist for Windows 98, NT, 2000, ME, or XP. If you have Win7 32-bit, you may be able to run in the compatibility mode. Load the CD into the optical drive, then right click on the .exe file on the CD. Then choose Properties. Select the Compatibility tab and check Run this program in the compatibility mode. Click Apply and OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. This isn't guaranteed to work since the changes in the OS are significant.

To check if you have Win7 32-bit or the 64-bit version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. The title will say Windows 7 (Version) for a 32-bit OS. It will read Windows 7 (Version) x64 for the 64-bit version of the OS.

If you have the 64-bit OS or the compatibility mode doesn't work, you need a computer running an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual-boot computer (where you select your OS at startup) or a virtual computer (that runs inside the real computer). If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of those versions, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

(The last person I dealt with with the issue of an embroidery machine not talking to Windows 7 kept their old Windows XP computer just to work with the sewing machine. Fortunately the old computer was still working enough to use for the purpose.)

Cannot download patters from a computer that has Windows XP. Sewing machine worked with Windows 95 and 98, but won't with Windows XP.

Sometimes the PC operating system's security will not allow correct installation of software.

You can try to reinstall your software by temporarily turning off the firewall and anti virus programs. Be sure to turn them back on after the installation.

If this does not help, you will need to contact Pfaff support -

Changing from windows XP to Vista

Unfortunately there is no fix for users of version 3 who have upgraded to vista.
The version 4 of Artista software does work in Vista. I have tested this and it appears to me to be related to the software "dongle" protections.
