Installing Quilt-Pro and other programs with
Windows 7, 8, 10 or Windows Vista
If you are unable to install your Quilt-Pro Systems program on Windows 7 or Windows Vista, the problem is actually with the "auto run" program that starts the installer. Here are two ways to deal with the auto run program so that you can install your software:
When you insert the disk in the drive, the program should attempt to launch an install wizard for the program automatically. In this case, the AutoPlay dialog box will appear. However, instead of choosing to 'run Autorun.exe' or install the program, you should choose to 'Open folder to view files'. Then locate the program's setup file, called Setup or Setup.exe. Right Click on the file and choose Run as Administrator. When it asks you if you want the program to run, choose Allow.
If the AutoPlay dialog box doesn't appear but gives you an error message, click cancel to clear theerror message. Then go to the Start button, click on the Computer icon. Once in the Computer screen, you should see the CD with the program icon. Right-click on the icon and choose 'Explore' or "Open".Then locate the program's setup file, called Setup or Setup.exe. Right Click on the file and choose Run as Administrator. When it asks you if you want the program to run, choose Allow.

New Free Pattern For Teaching Paper Piecing: I am often asked if patterns from my books can be copied and distributed for the purpose of teaching a class. They cannot as this would violate copyright.However, I have uploaded a block pattern in the Free Patterns section that can be used for teaching others how to paper piece. Permission to reproduce the pattern is given for this purpose and is printed on the pattern.
