I am desperate for software to run my older reader/writer for my Viking rose. any suggestions on how to make it work or what I can use

You might be ahead to buy an older computer with the windows version
that works with your reader/writer and dedicate it to embroidery only. That was my solution for my software.

Would you be able to use a Magic Box?

Check Embrilliance. I cannot say enough about this software. Not too expensive and you only have to buy the modules you need. Hugs. Nan W

that would not help as the prbloem is that the reader/writer needs to be recognised by the operating system and newer than Vista just does not. It would maybe work if you can use a virtual Vista - but my Windows 8.1 does not offer that possibility. I do not know if Windows 10 does.

oops - problem

I have an Iris that needs the reader/writer. Unfortunately Husqvarna has not made patches/ upgrades that allows it to function on an OS newer than Vista. As the Iris has no in-built designs but came with one card, it makes it rather useless as an embroidery machine. I am afraid the same applies to the Rose.

Yes, I have the Rose and have the same issue. Luckily I kept an old windows machine which still has the software on it and use that but ended up getting another embroidery machine. Wish they would do a patch--we paid dearly for that software!!
