How do I Lower the pressure foot for sewing after changing from embroidery on my brother pc- 8500?

Would a manual help?

Brother PC 8500 User Manual

Are the feed dogs in the raised position? Is it a regular stitch presser foot or a darning foot? A darning foot is shorter in height so the fabric can be maneuvered without use of the feed dogs. Just some ideas. Could also be an embroidery setting that has not been deactivated.

I have memory craft crashed and had to relace- now have windows 7 and can not install my cstomiser 10000 plus (ver1.0

There are software updates for the Customizer 10000. See: . Drivers and installers have changed over time.

I do not know the limitations of the update software.

I hope this helps.

(The other thing to try is the compatibility mode. This may work directly - right click on the installer and choose Properties. Then choose the compatibility tab and set the Program to always run as compatible with XP. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. If this doesn't work, another option is to run a second computer with an older version of Windows. You can use a true second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (which takes a portion of memory from the main computer but doesn't require a restart). If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. The other options require a valid Windows license for the older OS. Install your Customizer in the older OS as you would normally install the software.)
