    Master xy 380

    Hi anyone
    I am wanting to get my master vinyl cutter working again and hope you can help me.

    I have a master xy380 and was running winpc letter 12.0 running with xp.
    I now have a hp pavillion slimline s5 1224 windows 7 64 bit (no serial port) which does not work with winpc letter 12.0
    Or can I put a serial port in my slimline?

    thinking of buying winpcsign basic 2009 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sign-making...499042?hash=item23349c12e2:g:B0EAAOxy2YtRujIl

    that needs no internet connection to cut.
    can you please give me your best path of getting it working again?

    I have called desay,they seem busy& want me to buy new stuff

    I am in Minnesota(central) and drive from 7 am to 8 and from evening 430- 5 30 pm
    feel free to call me with your resolution or if you have more questions.
    or repond e mail thimmesch1@msn.com or text 763-398-9751

    or other options I thought of was ...build an xp machine? depending on online requirements
    or use winpc letter 12.0 with windows7 and a serial to usb adapter?

    You will need to upgrade to WinPCSign 2014 that will run on 64 bit computers.

    Might be.
    I had one of those hooked up to a Red Sails cutter years ago worked fine.
