  1. Using 8.1 with MC 10001

    I was able to use my new laptop to access designs using windows 8.0 on my MC 10001, but I had to use a SanDisk card instead of direct wire.
    Recently, we upgraded to 8.1, and I have lost the use of my software. What do I need to download? I know Janome says it does not support 8.1 with Digitizer Pro, but there must be a way. (Wish my old laptop had not died.)

  2. Using 8.1 with MC 10001

    Isn't there an update on Janome Global website? There is a chance to upgrade to MBX v.4 for a reasonable price, but I imagine that you have looked at that already. MBX is really very much more intuitive that Digi Pro or any of the previous versions. That seems to happen as software evolves - sometimes. In Digitizer's case it is definitely a plus, but I do wonder about Windows sometimes. I use a MacBook Pro and then software to run Windows - I'm stuck in Windows 7 and probably should go to Windows 8.1, but haven't done so yet. My computer is now 5 years old and I'm sure I will need to upgrade that soon, but I'm in no hurry as I will have to decide whether I stick with Apple and the Mac or go back to a PC.

    Bev, Digitizer pro was written for older operating systems, there is a possibility of setting up a virtual machine inside your PC and running XP on it, but I have no idea how viable that would be for you.
