Print them, save them to a flash drive, back them up onto a cloud storage. It’s YOUR responsibility to protect your registrations. Do NOT assume you’ll always be able to utilize these options. Be smart, and do it today!______________________________________(A)Find the original emailthat MTC sent to youafter you registered.Note that anoriginal activation pin that you were issuedafter purchasing the softwareis not the registration number and cannotbe used to retrieve the registration number. This is the fastest and easiest way to get your number(s). To verify you have the correct numbers, note that an MTC registration begins with the letters “MTC” and a PCS registration begins with the letters “PCS.”______________________________________(B)Download, unzip, and run this quickWindows-only appthat will find your MTC and PCS registrations, assuming your computer currently has the program(s) installed and registered.This method will work on a PC /Windowsinstallation. Thesoftware must be currently registered on the computer.Download the fileat the following link:http://www.iloveknk.com/Support/Software/Make-The-Cut/MTC-PCS-Reg-Key-Extractor/After extracting the BATfile, double click on it, as if it were an EXE file. Youwill most likely get a warning from Windows. You will need to allow the program to be run by clicking on More Infoand then clicking on Run Anyway(or other similar option).The app will locate your registration numbers in the Windows registry and paste them into a text file that will automatically pop open.You can then save that file, back it up, print it out, etc. for safe keeping.Important:Some anti-virus programs may reject this application. You have two options: (1) locate and temporarily change a setting in your anti-virus program to allow you to override a blocked program or (2) use Option C below instead of this one.______________________________________(C)Deactivate,paste from clipboard, reactivate.This method will work on a PC or a Mac installation.Your softwaremust be currently registered on the computer.


The following videos present this method for MTC and for PCS:MTC: https://vimeo.com/295488163PCS:https://vimeo.com/295488184IMPORTANT:Immediatelyafter deactivating, paste the number into a text file, such as Word, Notepad, a new email, etc. ______________________________________(D)IF you bought MTC or your cutter from KNK USA, there’s a chance they might have a copy of your registration email. Some, but not all, were forwarded to KNK USA based on the original pins numbers that wereregistered. If you are confident that this applies to you, please send an email to smccauley45@cox.netproviding the full name that would have been used for registering and the email address. I will then contact KNK USA on your behalf. ______________________________________If you know of other MTC/PCS users who may not find this document, please share and urge them to back up their registrations TODAY! Also...If you have any questions or issues, please submit them to smccauley45@cox.net. My thanks to Paul Zingah (Crazy_Mr_Zing at the MTC Forum) for providing the solutions in Options B and C. These were key in motivating me to write up these instructions and get them out to the MTC world. Thanks also to Liz Ackerman for reading andtesting


Make The Cut recently went offline. This has caused numerous issues with registration and access to the now defunct online file gallery. Shortly after MTC went down, the developers of Sure Cuts A Lot began working on an import filter. This is an excellent option for those who have switched to SCAL, and for anyone who needs to make the switch.

If you own both MTC and SCAL, click here for a video tutorial on how to import MTC files into SCAL.
