How to update from Version 4, 5, or 6 to Version 7

The steps below will tell you how to properly update from a previous version of BERNINA embroidery software to the latest BERNINA Embroidery Software (Version 7). 

Note: You do not need to install any old versions of software before doing an update. The only items you need are both dongles, and new software DVD (or download link) to complete the update process.

  1. Have BOTH the old dongle and new dongle connected to your computer.
  2. Download the latest Dongle Driver HERE.
  3. Install the dongle driver with BOTH dongles still connected to the computer.
  4. Disable your firewall AND anti-virus software prior to installation.
  5. Insert your Version 7 DVD, and start the installation process.
  6. During the installation process, the licensing information will be transferred from our old dongle to your new dongle.
  7. When installation is complete, discard the old dongle as it is now useless.
