Viki, I do not know if this is any solution to what you are asking, but I have an "06 commercial machine, and I use our old computer Windows XP, along with Embird basic, to work with designs and send them to the machine. I am not a computer whiz, just seem to somehow push the right button. I love my Embird program. Just the basic program has a lot of useful features!
i dont think i can go strait to my machine but im going to see that would be wonderful! thanks so much
thank you all god bless viki
I pray that you, given time, be able to understand more. I do not know what programme to recommend - I use Bernina V6 - and it works well for me. Maybe Rescuer has the best possible solution to your problem. May God keep you safe in His Hands. Lovies.*****
this is out of my league but I will bring it back to the top & pray for your continued strength
Try Ebay for a newer version of your software that will work on your computer. Just make sure it is complete.
I see at the bottom you say you have Sierra software - if you do then why not get the free Sierra digitizing software- Stitch Era Universal? I say this only if you already know how to use it because it is not easy to learn.
it isent free to ditg just just change formats ect
I cannot answer your question but just want to say Welcome back, may you gain strength from our cute family. Hugs Christine, Johannesburg
If you have Windows & Professional or Windows & Ultimate, you can use your old software by running something called “Virtual Machine”. It looks and acts like XP. It is included with the two versions of Windows.
How to tell if you have one of those versions: Click the Windows symbol (used to be the “Start” button. Find “Computer” and RIGHT click it. Select “Properties” and locate the version on the center top of your screen. If you have Professional or Ultimate, I can help you use your old software without spending any extra money on software.
Let me know if you want my help.
It also works on "Home Premium" too.
I like a girl who knows what she's talking about! Wish I could say the same about my computer skills. Jan
Ooops! I misspoke about the Home Premium. It doesn't work with Virtual Machine XP Mode which is what you would need.
so i cant do it? thanks viki
they wanted 1,200 to up grade my old softwear
It would only be about $100 US dollars to upgrade your computer. $1200 is a LOT of money in this economy! What about buying a second hand XP computer?
have one and for some reason it wont write for the designs to be read
embroidery machine still uses floppys
You will need to use the "Windows Virtual Machine" the others like Oracle have known issues with reading or communicating with usb/floppys. Have you tried to configure the virtual floppy drive itself?
i do good to get my free designs down loaded thanks
I am afraid the VM stuff is really complicated. Sorry. The easy way is to buy a used XP machine. Some places refurbish machines and sell a desktop for less than $100. We sell them cheap when we get them. Good luck!
sorry forgot i have an swf 1501 2001 with sierra soft wear
