Hi,

Adobe should not be associated to open an embroidery file. It cannot. this makes me wonder if you have any type of embroidery software installed on your computer? (digitizing or embroidery viewer/sizer)

If not, that is the answer to your problem! You must have some sort of embroidery program installed to view these types of files. If an embroidery program was installed it should have automatically associated most embroidery files with it. It does not sound like your disk is corrupted, but just needs the required program to open it.

You can download one type of free program here: http://www.embroiderystartup.com/Fre...3/Default.aspx


In case you already do have software installed you may have to go under your "control panel", folder options and associate/designate your software program to open dst's.

Cheers!

You need digitizing software to view it.

Wilcom True Sizer is another.

http://www.embroiderystartup.com/Fre...3/Default.aspx

You will have to join their free site but it's free. I have it on several computers so that I can view files if I need to.

Merry Christmas.

We are assuming you have Pulse software. What may be happening is adobe is your default for opening files. In this case it will not work. Try this go to my computer and you should see your CD/DVD drive with the disk in it. Right click on the disk drive and do open WITH (not just open) you should be able to then select to open the dst with pulse. Please note there maybe a check box on the lower left that says use this for the default, make sure this is unchecked.

Hope this helps, Merry Christmas and please remember Jesus is the Reason this Season!
