    Very Old Craft Robo help please

    Afternoon, I used to be an active member of the site many moons ago.

    I still use my robbie a lot, but have upgraded to a windows 11 laptop, and now he won't connect. I contacted Graphtec, who suggested downloading Sillohette software, but still no luck. Seems there is an issue with the communication with 11.

    Has anyone found a work around please. At the moment i am considering getting a cheap win 10 laptop just for the robster.

    Thanks

    Hi there Sam (hope I've picked the right name!). Always nice to see a returning member as our numbers have dropped significantly in recent times, hence the alteration to our section of the site. In actual fact I have to own up that I am not answering your question because I don't use windows 11, but seeing that 30 odd people have viewed the post and no one has even said hello and welcome I felt I needed to redress the balance and offer a handshake or we may never see you again!! Have you tried searching online to see if anyone else has experienced this problem and to check if there are any tutorials or helpful videos out there, your search question needs to be carefully worded to try and capture anything relevant but it's worth a look. I do hope you have some success, and you could try going back to Graphtec to see if they have any further ideas you could try. I'd love to know if you find a solution, and it could be helpful to someone else. Nice to meet you.

    Andi

    i really hope someone can help you. I am using Windows 11 but but no longer have a Robo I have the original silhouette but haven't used it for a very long time so don't know if it still works. The machine I now use is a ScanNcut. Have you tried contacting Silhouette America to see if they have any suggestions?

    Hi, I unearthed my old Craft Robo recently and got it to work fine on Windows 10 with the (free) Silhouette Design Studio software. Much better than the original offering. The Graphtec website yielded an updated driver that once loaded, made everything work again. Hope you can get your machine up and running !
