BERNINA Embroidery Software 8 – even more creativity in 3D BERNINA Embroidery Software 8 provides you with a wide range of unique features and 3D effects for creative embroidery with an individual touch. A 30-day trial version of the Software is also available as a free download. The Software comes with a USB stick and a card with a product key that replaces the dongle of previous versions. The USB stick is used to install the software, which must then be activated by the product key. The USB stick consists of two parts: one takes care of the installation, is write-protected, and hence appears in Windows Explorer as the CD drive. The other serves as removable media, and can be used to transfer data such as embroidery motifs to your embroidery machine. BERNINA Embroidery Software 8 is activated online using the product key. The licensing agreement, which must be accepted before completion of installation, allows the user to activate the software on two different computers. A third activation option is also held in reserve for a new computer replacing an old one.
