    Singer says Futura Software is not compatable with 64 bit Vista.

    My machine will not work on Windows Vista Home Premium I have downloaded the patches with no luck. Singer blames it on their software provider in europe and is not much help.

I was able to install under a user account with administrator, although some features are not enabled or working properly for other non-administrator users.

I cannot seem to down load my software onto my computer tried it on vista tried it on windows 7 i am peeved


Have you downloaded the patches for your software to upgrade to Vista? I would suggest that you visit the Singer support page on their website and read through the patches information.

http://www.futura-support.com/downloads/patch.htm

Your software is probably built for XP operating system so you would need to patch it for the newer Vista - there is not yet a patch for Windows 7.

I have just brought a bernina 180 embroidery machine with v2 softare but am unable to open it on my laptop which is run by vista home basic. Was wondering if there is a patch to download, i have been into...


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. 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. Microsoft really through out a curve ball 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

Crafty123.

After reading through your problem, I began doing some research. You are correct with your initial assumption. Singer at this time, does not support Vista 64bit Operating System. They will support it on Vista 32bit, but even then you would have to install it in what is called, "Compatability Mode." Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to have many vendors not have their software work on 64bit systems. Many programs/applications were only written to work on 32bit systems. Ocassionally, you will have a system work on 64bit, by almost pure accident. Here's the link for the system requirements on the Singer Quantum Futura. http://www.singerco.com/futural/qfutura.html
For the plain futura system, you can go to: http://www.singerco.com/futura
click on the Futura System Requirements.
If you would like to attempt to install to Vista x64. Try following the compatability mode for 32bit Vista. http://www.futura-support.com/downloads/patch.htm#/ read the "Click here" to read the detailed installation instructions for installing on a Vista system

Best of Luck.

Futura 200ce trouble


It may be possible to run the Autopunch software in Compatability mode rather than the native Vista.. If you right click on the shortcut to Hyper/Auto punch and choose properties and left click on that. You should then see a tab at the top of that screen marked Compatibility. There should be a check box and a pulldown for Various versions of Windows. Check the box and select Windows XP Service pack 2. You MAY also need to check the box for Run as an Administrator. If this fails , then Im afraid you need to contact Singer to see if there is Vista Driver. If nothing is forthcomming, then downgrading to XP is the final option, (System will run faster too -) ) Cheers. Pete

Can't get quantum to work


When I looked at Futura's website yesterday getting information on installing this software on a Vista system, there are a number of things that you have to do, not just download and install the Vista patch.  After you install the Vista patch, instructions are given on how to set the program to run in WIN XP mode and then you have to install the XP patch.  Check the website for the specific instructions.  Now if I could just find a copy of the base software to install (my mother-in-laws computer crashed and no one can find the install CD -- we found the other one and the DVD video disk but not the install).  Singer wants to sell me the program again for $269.
