PE design saving files

User avatar
craftyredhead40 | Posted in Machine Embroidery on

I am having problems with my previously saved designs on my computer.  I have PE Design plus and I have been using it for 3 years.  When I saved the files as PES they showed up as a thumbnail with the PE design little pink and white flower.  Recently I had downloaded some other digitizing software to look at.   After deciding I wanted to stay with PE design, I removed the other software.  Unfortunately in my haste PE was also removed.  Now I have loaded it back on my computer but my old designs will not open with PE when I click on them.  They have Adobe assigned as the program to open.  Please help if anyone knows how to fix this!!! I have removed and reloaded it already.

    Opening ME Files

    Have you tried right clicking on one of the Adobe files and selecting either Open With or Send To?

    The Brother website has the option of contacting them for assistance.

    Best Wishes in resolving your problem as well as success with your future projects.

      As mentioned above, right click on file design from your desktop and then scroll down to Open with ( and then choose pe-design next.exe software from system directory )
