If driver was not installed properly the first thing you should check is whether you have 32bit or 64bit Vista. 64bit Vista is not supported and there is no possibility to launch Futura software on pc with such platform. If your Vista is 32bit and you have a driver installation problem send troubleshooting utility report to Singer.

I bought a new computer with Windows 8 & now my dongle is not recognized, why?

I tried the Husqvarna Viking dongle drivers for 4D VIP Customizing software on a new Windows 8.1 system, but nothing worked. (It worked fine on my old Vista system). After a few weeks of frustration, I found this site :
I downloaded the Sentinel Driver v7.5.8 (they work for Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/2008/2012/Vista & Windows 7&8 (32 bit and 64 bit)), installed it, restarted my computer, and everything worked like a charm.
Somebody should tell Husqvarna about those drivers...

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.

Changed computers and Artista 180 needs Windows 95 to exe the set up program. Also downloaded V3 in 2003 and need to have that running on the new computer. HELP

Windows is able to run applications in Compatibility mode. Open the cd in Explorer, RIGHT click on the setup.exe file you see there. In properties look for compatability mode and set it to windows 95. It doesn't always work but often will.

If you have Vista 32-bit the following will work. If you have Vista 64-bit it will not work and they don't plan to fix it I'm told.

To do so:
  1. Open Windows Explorer. (use to be called My computer)
  2. Location the application executable. (if you have the CD in right click it and choose Open.)
  3. Right click the executable (setup.exe) and click the Properties option.
  4. Select the Compatibility tab.
  5. Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option. From the drop-down list, choose the operating system you ran before upgrading to Vista. (I choose XP with service pack.)
  6. Click "apply" and then "ok". That window will close.
  7. Right click the setup.exe icon again and choose to "run program as an administrator".
  8. Click OK.
  9. double click the "setup.exe' icon and it should work.

Vista Compatability is zero

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.

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.
For the plain futura system, you can go to:
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. 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

Don't buy computers with Windoze Vista on them, go to your local shop and get them to build you one with XP on it. XP will be around for a long time at least to 2014. Vista is junk, always will be.
