I've got antiquated V3 Editor Software on my Bernina 165, but it works just fine for me. Trouble is, it only operates on my clunky old PC with an ancient operating system. Can someone tell me which of the newer versions would allow me to go to my XP laptop without spending $2000+ for V6?!

If you can find someone with an old version of the V5, it will work on XP. BTW, Windows is going to stop supporting XP next year. No big deal, except for the security updates. I run XP and have plans to change my OS by then. I am not sure if V5 will run on Win 8. A well-informed Bernina dealer or Bernina themselves can tell you that. There are Yahoo Groups for the Bernina software as well as the Bernina machines. I have no doubt that someone there can answer your question. Both are very nice, friendly, moderated groups with owners of your same machine.

Thanks! I just bought V5 on ebay (plus dongle and book)! And I goofed on my OS....it's Vista! So I'm hoping to be all set. Will continue to be involved with this websit...it's great.

Bernina V5 MIGHT work on Vista, IF it's the 32 bit version. It will not run on the 64 bit version. Also, Bernina is no longer supporting V5 at all and there are no updates to make it compatible with any operating system newer than XP.

Wasn't there a "patch" issued for that 32 vs. 64 bit problem? I'm not sure, but seems I remember something about that, but maybe it was for v6.

Thanks all! I'm having several challenges, but there were updated for both the 32 and 64bit versions of Vista. Mine is 32bit, but so far, no luck. I'll call my Bernina dealer to see if a firmware update would help.

The patch was for V6 only. Bernina is no longer supporting any prior versions (even V5) with any updates/patches/etc.
