Help Please. I have downloaded/upgraded SewIconz 64bit but can not get my patterns to appear or convert to pes. I have also downloaded WinZip. If you have Windows 10 and SewIconz how do you convert your patterns to pes (Brother) so that you can load them onto a USB and then onto your machine? I never had this problem with my old computer.

You want to unzip the file?? Right click on the zipped file, from the drop down menu ,you can now
either "OPEN" and copy and paste your design. Or "EXTRACT ALL" which will give you an unzipped file folder. Hope this is what you are looking for.
Windows 10 doesn't need another program to unzip files.

Try opening on the desktop screen. I do this sometimes to get mine. After open then put the one pes in another folder. then you will have the pes format only.

I have SewIconz and windows 10. SewIconz allows me to see the design in all formats. To covert from one format to another I use WILCOM TRUSIZER which is a free conversion download. I hope his helps.

Thank You for your answers but still can't achieve what I want.Think I should go back to square one. Never thought I was dumb until now.
If I have just bought this Windows 10 Computer and wanted to buy patterns from say Embroidery Library (Which I have bought many) I have downloaded the Zip file from them and now want to convert it so I can load it onto my Brother machine with a USB. Please tell me what to do/buy. p.s. I have now deleted WinZip thanks to rescuer

If you have bought designs at Embroidery Library go to your order history and change the design from ? to Pes and re-download it. I have done this to all my orders as I had a Janome and now have a Brother as well. As for Sewlconz I can't help you. Maybe crafter2243's suggestion is the way to go. Hope this helps a little.

I don't have Sewlconz, but I do have SewWhat Pro from the same Company. Once you unzip your designs, you can convert them to whatever format you want.
If you have SewWhat Pro, let me know and I will tell you how to do a Batch Convert.

In Windows 10 you do not need Winzip. Just right click on a zipped file and choose Extract all.
I do not know anything about SewIconz. All can think of that you may need to link your files to it in Properties

Ok I looked at the property of my pes files and it says unknown application and then I realized that I had purchased SewIconz a while back and had the same issue. I contacted the company/owner and he send me a small program that fixed it.

First, you don't need winzip. Windows has the ability to extract zipped files. Additionally, winzip often has Trojan/virus payload.

Second, you need to right click on an embroidery file and select SewIconz as the program you wish to use for embroidery files. You will need to do this for each file type (i.e. pes, jef, art etc.)

I hope this makes sense.
