Singer PSW 1.1 Will it run on Vista?

Threaded View


Hi all,

Back in 1998 I bought an XL 1000 and along with it, the PSW 1.0 and 1.1
upgrade.  At the time, I didn't have the patience to learn how to use the
PSW.  Recently, however, I got it out, dusted it off and decided to give
it a try.  Now, of course I have a newer computer running Vista and I will
soon upgrade to Win 7.  I am wondering if there is a fix to get PSW to
work with Vista and/or Win 7? I haven't as yet tried installing PSW on my
computer running Vista.  Any suggestions/advice/help would be greatly
appreciated.  Thanx!!

If you haven't yet tried to install it, how do you know it needs a fix?

There is/was a problem even running 1.1 in XP, for which a free patch
is available.

Just go ahead and install it. If it doesn't work, try to obtain the XP
patch. After that, you may still have to run it in XP or 9x
compatibility mode.

Thanks for your reply.  Yup, I have Singer's support site for PSW
bookmarked; I have the fixes for XP downloaded and ready to go.  Tomorrow
I will load up PSW, install the fixes and see what happens.

I bought a new laptop (and paid a "downgrade" fee for XP
Pro!) to use with my Singer Quantum XL5000.  However, I had
problems getting the USB-to-serial adaptor to transmit
designs to the embroidery machine. It's weird because I can
open the PSW "Conversion Tool" software, and it finds the
embroidery machine just fine with all the identical port
settings.  But it's a pain to create a design, save it in
PSW, close PSW, and open Conversion Tool EVERY TIME in order
to send designs to the XL5000.  I finally have resurrected
an older computer (also running XP Pro) which has a serial
port for the PSW dongle  and it works perfectly.  So I've
retired the laptop to be my backup DVD recorder.

You have nothing to lose by doing a test install and seeing
if it works.  If it doesn't, partition your harddrive,
install XP on a bootable parititon, and run PSW from there.

I don't have PSW 1.0 (I have PSW 2.0a).  Does it use a
dongle?  If so, you may have to find a USB adaptor for the
cables, none of the newer computers have serial ports AFAIK.
I did find USB-to-serial adaptors for my newer laptop, but
it was a less than perfect work-around.

I am looking for PSW 1.1.  I have an older computer which I use for PSW 1.0.  Do you still use your PSW 1.1?  If not would you be willing to sell it?
