I really want to get a laptop I can use for my embroidery, does anyone know if there is a problem using the 5D software with Windows 8?

You guys are awesome!
Patti, thanks for the yahoo group! They say to go to a different group for software questions, I will hunt that one down.

Wolf, just sent them an email, hope they get back to me soon!

I got an answer on Pfaff's facebook page, YES it does work with windows 8!

And they gave me a phone number to call if I need help with it.

Now on to finding an inexpensive laptop.....

I have windows 8 and 5D and yes it works. The Driver you choose is the 64 bit when you get to that part in the download from the 5D disk
