Singer XL-1000


Hi I recently was given this machine and a psw1.1 and I have NO IDEA how
to use. Well the machine I have fiquired out but the psw ? I installed 1.0
and 1.1 software upgrade and cant get it to open. The lady who had this
has alzheimers and her daughter is the one who gave to me so of course the
mother cant help....Anyone have any ideas? I have googled everything I
know and really cant find out anything about....Is it still in use? I know
that now it is 2.0 can mine be upgraded again? HELP! LOL Thanx

That was my thought as well. I'm not familiar with PSW1.1, but I have PSW 2.0a and it *does* require a dongle. In addition, OP does not say what computer OS he/she uses, nor what hardware he/she has, and it makes a difference.
My PSW requires serial connectors, but I had bought a new notebook to use with it. I had to stand on my head and hold my tongue just right in order to get the serial-to-USB connection to work. I finally re-activated an older computer with native serial ports, running XP, and now everything works smoothly.

Your friendly, neighbourhood Singer dealer might be a good place to start.
A dongle is a security/anti-pirating device. I think most of the newer ones look like a USB memory device.

I am a co-moderator on the Yahoo! group TeamSewAmused. We are devoted to the enlightenment and enjoyment in using the Singer XL model machines AND PSW software (all versions). Even though the machines and software are no longer supported by Singer we can offer a wealth of information from our group which is composed of many PSW users. You have a great machine and a good program,too, even though it is not easily self-taught. I know -- I was where you are just 3 years ago.
If you're not already a member of Yahoo!, do sign up and then join our group. Your questions will be answered -- we have experience running the software on all Windows systems from 95 on up to Vista. Our knowledge is shared willingly with anyone desiring to learn how to use PSW.
I do hope you will join us.
