-====== Installing Husqvarna 3D Embroidering on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 ====== 
  
-I've spent a few hours trying to get the 3D Husqvarna Embroidering system installed under Windows. ​ It took a lot of wrestling but here's how I got it to work.  Hopefully, with these instructions,​ you'll find it much easier than I did. 
- 
-I've now tried this myself on lots of machines and had quite a few reports of success from users. These instructions work under Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista. I've gotten reports from "Home Edition",​ "​32-bit",​ and "​64-bit"​ users. Chances are good that it will work for you in any version of Windows. 
- 
-Contrary to the original instructions,​ you should connect the dongle to the computer before following these steps. If you already have the software installed, it's a good idea to uninstall everything first. 
- 
-<box round|Installation Steps> 
-\\ 
-  - Install your 3D Embroidery CD 
-  - Install the [[http://​www.emnetsoftware2.co.uk/​W/​725/​3DEmbroideryPatch725.exe|3D Embroidery 7.25 Upgrade]] 
-  - Install the [[http://​www.emnetsoftware2.co.uk/​Support/​3DEmbroideryVistaDongleUpdate.exe|Vista Dongle Patch]] 
-  - Install the latest [[http://​www.emnetsoftware2.co.uk/​downloads/​HASP/​HASPUserSetup.exe|Hasp Dongle Driver]] 
-</​box>​ 
- 
-**Step 1 - Install your 3D Embroidery CD** 
- 
-In my case we had the 3D Embroidery 7.0 CD.  First, I installed that. 
- 
-**Step 2 - Install the 3D Embroidery 7.25 Upgrade** 
- 
-In order to get to the latest version, I downloaded and installed the 3D Embroidery 7.25 Upgrade (above). 
- 
-//In case that link goes bad, I found the upgrade by visiting the  [[http://​www.vsmsoftware.net/​Registration/​3D/​Updates.htm|Husqvarna Downloads Page]] then clicking the **3D Embroidery System** link.// 
- 
-**Step 3 - Install the Vista Dongle Patch** 
- 
-In order for the program to work under Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 you'll need to install the Windows Vista Dongle Patch (above). 
- 
-//If that link stops working, I originally found that file on the [[http://​www.vsmsoftware.net/​Registration/​3D/​Updates.htm|Husqvarna Downloads Page]], but the link on the official page is currently broken. So, use the first link in this paragraph.//​ 
- 
-When you execute this download it will extract a haspms32.dll file and overwrite your old one (typically in the C:​\3dEmbroidery directory). Once that is extracted, this step is complete. 
- 
-//Thanks to Wanda White from [[http://​fatbabysfashions.freeservers.com/​emb.html|Fatbabys Fashions]] for contacting Husqvarna and getting the correct link to the Vista Dongle Patch.// 
- 
-**Step 4 - Install the latest Hasp Dongle Driver** 
- 
-Finally, when staring Embroidery 3D I would get an error of //Hasp Driver Not Found// or //Hasp Driver Not Installed// (I don't recall which). ​ To solve that problem I installed the latest version of the Hasp Dongle Driver (above), which I found on the Husqvarna [[http://​www.husqvarnaviking.com/​global/​8588_4197.htm|Other Useful Software]] page.

- 
-====== If it Doesn'​t Work ====== 
- 
-If the process doesn'​t work, you still have a few more options. 
- 
-  - [[Uninstall the Husqvarna 3D embroidery software]] and try again 
-  - Install an old copy of Windows in a virtual machine like VirtualBox 
-  - Restore the computer to factory defaults and start from scratch 
- 
-====== USB Reader/​Writer ====== 
- 
-If you have a USB Reader/​Writer,​ please let me know if it's working in the comments below. I've had a lot of reports from people that the software works but they'​re unable to get the USB Reader/​Writer to work. The one I worked on interfaced with the Parallel Port and worked fine. I don't have a USB Reader/​Writer to experiment with though. 
- 
-====== Lost Registration Codes ====== 
- 
-If you've lost your license key, you'll be unable to install the original software. Unfortunately,​ I can't provide a license key for you and you probably won't find one online. There is hope, however. 
- 
-If you've lost the registration code, and you previously registered the software with Husqvarna, you can retrieve it from the [[http://​www.6dembroiderysystem.com/​en/​Support/​Software-Help|VSM Software Product Registration Database]]. Click the first link on that page. 
- 
-Thanks to David for providing that link.
