I'm a little slow, just found out about this upgrade. The way I understand it, the new software will read all of the versions of pes? Even the higher numbers. But, here's my question:
I still won't be able to use the higher versions in my machine until I convert them to lower versions, right?
Yes that is correct. I convert or download hus version, because it is less complicated and then convert to pes ver 4.0 or 1.0. I still had problems with designs that I converted pes 6.0 to 4.0 with wilcom at my machine. Also if on a duetta and still getting error the design may be too big for the hoop.
Lots of good info there, I used to get the no sewing data till I updated but now I am getting the design showing up in the folders but not showing a design of it being in my ped-basic to transfer to the card. I do have the 1.07, as Winnie the Pooh would say, "Oh bother"
hrm.. makes me wonder if the design you're looking at is too big for the default hoop you've chosen. You could try selecting a different hoop size from the PED Basic drop down and see if that helps. xXx
Nope, didn't show up then either. I'd say it's more me than it is the program, lol!
Adding info for the win7 users too :)
It looks to me to be identical to the info Brother supplies for Vista users, but I'll link to it anyway. The downloads for the update and the card driver are on the same page. xXx
lol I double posted the same msg, sorry xXx
no, admit it, you just want the extra flowers, LOL...here, have another.
crafter2243: I couldnt add links from the Brother site when answering you via the "add comment" button below your post but here is the info you ask about, taken from the Brother site:
"Full Driver & Software Package (PED-Basic Ver1.07)
When you use PED-Basic on Windows Vista®/ Windows® 7, please follow the procedure below to install these Driver and Software program.
If you use PED-Basic on Windows Vista®/ Windows® 7, NEVER install the programs from the CD in your package!!
To prevent a problem, please install these programs instead using the CD.
(Version information : PED-Basic Ver1.07 and Driver Ver3.0)"
The info link below is where I got this information, the other and also the DL page for vista users. I noticed that file size is the same for version 1.7 when compared to the update for xp users, so I'm assuming the only change for you vista users is that you need a driver file as well as this update. xXx
Thank you Dana. Very good information. Do you know if this update will work on Vista? I not6iced it staated XP
Linking to Brother site coz it got broken in my post :) 4.46 meg file for those who have to watch their DL limits xXx
This link if for XP users, see other posts for other operating systems.
lol I'm answering all my own posts and feel silly now. xXx
Well, if you can't laugh at yourself, don't worry, we will laugh at ya, lol! I often do things I'd rather hide in the corner for than laugh at myself but if everyone else is going to laugh I may as well join in!
