Windows® 8 and BERNINA Software
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen
The following information deals with BERNINA software products, which run on the new Windows® 8 Operating System released by Microsoft in October 2012.
As far as our BERNINA software products are concerned, we can report that by and large, Windows® 8 behaves very similarly to Windows®7.
Below, you’ll find our BERNINA software products listed individually. You can find out about the requirements for BERNINA software products in relation to Windows® 8.
PLEASE NOTE: Each computer may be configured differently, and its individual settings may affect how software and hardware attempt to operate on it. There is a chance that unknown problems may arise with your BERNINA embroidery software or hardware on any operating system, especially a brand-new one such as Windows®8. Since Windows®8 is only just being released onto the market, please bear in mind that further investigation may be required in order to respond to and solve your problem. Software Support will do everything within its power to resolve your issue. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

For Windows®8, please use the new 7570 version of Designworks.
BERNINA CutWork Software:
BERNINA CutWork Software V1 SP 2 doesn’t work with Windows® 8.

BERNINA CutWork Software V1 is not being adapted for Windows® 8. Update your BERNINA CutWork Software V1 for DesignWorks. By purchasing a CrystalWork or PaintWork software code, you’ll automatically receive access to DesignWorks CutWork at no additional cost.
BERNINA Embroidery Software 6:
As a general rule, DesignerPlus, Editor Plus and ArtLink run in Windows®8 with a small additional installation of NET Framework. All BERNINA embroidery machines can be accessed via ADX, except for the aurora and artista 165/170/180/185.
First, please install NET Framework 3.5 (including 2.0 and 3.0), so that the V6 installation will run smoothly and you are able to start up your BERNINA embroidery software.
Problem with the aurora: The aurora embroidery machine can be selected in the ADX, but cannot be confirmed with ‘OK’. The ‘OK’ button is grey.
Problem with the artista 165/170/180/185: For technical reasons, the BERNINA embroidery machines are not accessible.
We’ll be offering a service pack for BERNINA Embroidery Software V6 for these machines in the first quarter of 2013. Click here for the patch.
