OESD Magic Box Embroidery Software

Specs: Windows 7

When I try to use my OESD software I get a conflict and it's unable to recognize the box plugged into usb port. How do I find an upgrade - all the info I have seen said it won't work with Win 7. There has to be a workaround solution. Thanks for any help

From their web site.

"* PLEASE NOTE:
The Magic Box software is not compatible with 64-bit Windows XP, 64-bit Vista, or 64-bit Windows 7. It is compatible with 32-bit operating systems only."


Tell us if you have the 64 bit version of W7.

You may have to install the 32 bit version.

It may be that you have the Windows 7 dvd and you can select to re-install the OS with the 32bit version.

It is also possible that you could run a Virtual Machine along with some 32 bit operating system but I don't know what you need to connect to. It may or may not support sewing machines.

You may have to use a dual boot system too just for that application.

1. The first thing I tried was Properties.
The Magic Box plugs into a usb port, and has an embroidery card which plugs into one of it's 4 slots which converts files to exp extension which I then can plug card into my Bernina 330 embroidery machine. I didn't receive a dvd for win 7 when i purchased new notebook. The program worked great on last notebook with Win XP. Sorry to be so much trouble but I sure appreciate any help. gvartist

You will have to do this first. You need to find out how you are supposed to return your computer's data back to the way it was new. Either you have to make disks, or there is a hidden file (partition) or you have to buy disks. You really need to know that before you have to use them.

Once you have them you may be able to install a 32 bit OS.


It may be that in some future date the 64 bit OS will be supported. It is also possible that we can figure out some way to get this to work.

One idea is to use a Virtual Machine. VMplayer is a way to run two operating systems at the same time. It may be good enough to run a usb device correctly. You would need a copy of a 32 bit os to run. Windows 95 to Windows 7 all may work but I'd consider XP. There may be other ways that might work too.

If you want to keep trying send me a Private Messaage and we may be able to get it working.
