This is embroidery design software for people using embroidery machines.
While there are such heavyweight programs like Wilcom ES, Tajima DGML amd Melco Design Studio and they are easily available, I don\'t see any point why this software would be used at all. I have used all of the above and compared to those this is just a baby.
Worst of all is the crack. The crack has a 2 day time limit. to bypass that limit a launcher program called NoLimit has to be used which would reset the date of installation everytime you use it. To my opinion it is not worth all these hassle. But if you are really keen on using PE Design then please read the following paragraph very carefully.
Install the program normally and reboot. Then copy all the files from the \"crack\" folder to the installed folder and overwrite the original. The location would nomally be \"C:\\Program Files\\Brother\\PE-DESIGN Ver7\" unless you decide to install it somewhere else. DO NOT RUN THE PROGRAM YET.
You have still to bypass that 2 day limitation. Go inside the installation folder and run the file \"NoLimit 2.0.exe\", It would ask you to select a file. The following 4 files you have to deal with, one after another: \"EMBDB.exe\", \"EMBedit.exe\", \"EMBfont.exe\" and \"EMBmake.exe\". You select one file and in the date field type current date and then apply. You\'ll see everytime you do that for one file a new file would be created. The filename would be like \"Launch EMBDB.exe\" or \"Launch EMBedit.exe\". Those 4 newly created launch files would be the ones which you have to run in future, no other files. If you run \"EMBDB.exe\" instead of \"Launch EMBedit.exe\" then you have to reinstall and crack everything again. What a hassle! So, never run them from start menu. Either create shortcut of those 4 launcher files on the desktop and use those, or go to the install folder directly and run the launchers from there. Until some proper crack comes out, this seems to be only option. I am sorry. AGAIN, FOR THOSE 4 MAIN FILES NEVER RUN ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE LAUNCHER FILES. In the start menu there are one or two other things which can be run without cracking. The 4 main files has always to be run through the launcher. Another thing I should say, everytime you run the program through launcher, the program gives you warning about 2 day limit. Don\'t bother about it, NoLimit is supposed to reset the date everytime, so that 2 day would never end, hopefully.
Now some babble which I have to copy and paste from another place:

There are two text files inside the crack folder, one is about how to crack (which I just described) and another is about what NoLimit crack is. I would suggest you read those two first. Good luck!
