Default New to Futura CE-200

I am new to the Futura CE-200. Very excited about it. Problem-cannot get the autopunch software to work and once I load it, Futura software will not open at all. I have downloaded the upgrade from the Singer website. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hmm..that's very odd. Installing and opening software should be very straightforward. The only thing I can think of is that somehow the software did not install properly or if the software was working before you upgraded, maybe you did not upgrade it properly by choosing the wrong upgrade package for your system.

Have you tried uninstalling the software then restarting the computer and then installing the software again? Does the software work before the upgrade? We need more details and tell us what operating system you re running

I started with a fresh installation of Windows XP and did not install any updates. I did this because I am not going to go onlne with the computer. Autopunch has since worked!!!

Now I am experiencing 2 major problems:
bobbin looping
Feed dogs won't work after switching back to sewing from emboidery

I can see that the machine can be wonderful--but it seems to be over the rainbow right now!

Any suggestions?
Thanks, Sue.

Angry Re: New to Futura CE-200

I am also having the same problem that Futura Autopunch will not install. It keeps saying that the installation is aborted. Does anyone know how to correct this yet? I have Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1, 512 MB of Ram. I was using Autopunch, then I installed the correct service update and then I couldn't even click on Futura and open it. I went back in and uninstalled the update and reinstalled Futura, and now the Autopunch will not install. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I miss using Autopunch. Thanks

Thumbs up Re: New to Futura CE-200

Thank you Eastview! That definately was the problem in my case too. My program still seems to act up a little, but I am just glad I was able to install the Autopunch. I am glad you were able to help. I emailed SINGER many times and never got a response. I wanted to purchase Photostitch and Cross Stitch for my machine, but with all the problems with Autopunch and the fact that you can never get any help from SINGER, who knows what I will do. I guess I just wish that SINGER thought as much of their customers as we think of their products. SINGER is always there when you want to spend the money, but have a slight problem and SINGER has left the building.

Default Re: New to Futura CE-200

I've only had my futura 200 for three weeks and I can't stop creating embroidery items. It's so much fun. I had the same problem when I loaded autopunch (hyperfront would have created the same problem also.) A friendly singer dealer gave me the answer. It's a conflict with a windows xp update. You can fix it. Here's how to do it: The update was fairly recent (not before June, 2006 for sure). First, you have to go to control panel, click on security center. Then left click on automatic updates located at the bottom of the pop-up screen. Select notify me but...or turn off automatic updates.Click OK. Now, to remove the problem update. Go to control panel. Left click on add/remove programs. Check the "show updates" box. Scroll down and look for "Security Update for Windows XP (KB917422). It WILL be there. left click on this update. Left click on remove. Continue following the prompts to remove the update. Reboot computer. Mine did that automatically. I reinstalled autoPunch. It didn't cause Futura software to "not open". I immediately went to Create on the Futura page. Auto punch is there. I pulled up a favorite clip art piece that I'd saved. I followed the steps right through to the sewing part. It set my little clip art piece up with 12 different colors for the design. I transmitted the design and it sewed up. I hope this will help you guys who are having the same problem I was having. Good luck.
