Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Those are for-free. These are presumably at a price and are also offered:

Some who have run into the problem of older embroidering software not working with newer Windows versions, have recommended "4D Extra" as a program good for the Designer 1.

Some also recommend 'Embird' software as an update for more modern computers than those that run Windows XP, and with good capabilities.
