I have a laptop which is still running Windows XP dedicated to my  
(Singer XL6000) embroidery machine, and it runs PSW2.0a just fine.  
I cannot offer advise on Win10.  However, since you were able to  
install the software, you might want to consider that it may be a  
 >hardware< issue,  I had to go through about five different  
USB/serial adaptors before I found one which would work with the PSW  
dongle.

Good luck.

After several false starts, I found an ATIVA USB-to-serial adaptor  
which worked.

Like this one:

I bought mine at Fry's as I recall, but they do not seem to have  
them right now.

It has a mini CD installation for the drivers.

What embroidery machine does your wife have? I had to contact Singer  
to get all the correct speed, port, etc. settings, but mine is very  
stable now.  This was all 10+ years ago.

I wish I could help more.  I suspect there may be an issue with  
Windows 10, that is why I have retained my laptop with Windows XP.  
If your wife's machine and software worked with a previous OS, you  
may find it necessary to run a computer with that in order for her  
to use PSW.

At one time, Singer support was very helpful, I don't know if they  
still maintain a support division for legacy machines.
