MTC 4.6.2 was the latest version, but 4.6.1 was nearly the same. 4.6.2 had a small fix for one of the supported cutters. If 4.6.1 that you have does not work on the PC that you get, let me know. Take care of your registration keys!

I found a website "software.informer.com"  that claims it has the software version 4.6.2.. has anyone tried it? Norton and CNET have rated it safe but I'm cautious. 

It also looks like I can download  a copy of PCS on knkusa.com but I can't even try it without an operating PC. Has anyone else tried that?

So now i'm looking for a reasonably inexpensive PC that can run MTC and PCS. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I won't use it for anything else.  I have both registration keys and my files.

Andy, the developer  of MTC and PCS, went to a full time job elsewhere, and has not been supporting the software for a long while. He continues to pay for server space for the forum and videos, but has not fixed issues with the galleries, sales, and support pages. The software still works on PC computers.

Re MTC going

Hello Julie
Has anyone told you lately that you are pretty awesome?  Thx for the heads up and for all the info you have given to the group re how to ensure that our MTC and PCS software continues to work for us and for the zip files to download as an added backup. Thankfully I kept my original reg letters for both progs and had copied them and the various versions to a backup file, however, as external USB sticks and even large external backup drives can sometimes fail, (and it has), I have gone into overkill and did a few back-ups as I would hate to lose the prog which I have so enjoyed using all these years. We can only hope that M/Soft continues to support the older versions should they change their operating system and Emoji we will continue to be able to use the software for years to come and our group continues to thrive.  Thank you again for all your hard work and for being there over the years to sort out our problems, I truly appreciate it.
xx Christine

You would have received your registration key at the email address that you originally used when you purchased Make The Cut.

I want to strongly emphasize that MTC is NOT dead. It is abandonware but it still works and functions on a Windows 10 pc even the earliest versions. It will continue to work until such time as when Windows 10 or future Windows stops supporting 32 bit programs. If your MTC isn’t working that’s your isolated issue not the standard de facto. You can post a new message specifically outlining your issue and we can attempt to help you. 

So keep cutting and MTC  on!!!!!

You may be able to remove the drive from the dead computer, and hook it up in an external case to access the files there. 

I am attaching a zipped file containing the trial versions of MTC, PCS, as well as the plugins for various cutters. Save the zipped file to  your computer, then double click on the file and select Extract All. Your registration key can be used to activate the software.

MTC 4.6.1 or 4.6.2 are the latest software versions. MTC 4.1.0 is the one you need to use with the Legacy Cricut machines. You also need the PCCPlugin.dll for use of MTC 4.1.0 to work with the legacy Cricut machines. You should find that in the plugins folder for MTC 4.1.0.

The Make The Cut site is GONE. This means that Make The Cut software and Popup Card Studio software are no longer for sale. This also means that there is no longer an option to retrieve your registration keys for MTC or PCS. You can no longer download MTC or PCS Trial versions or drivers. The MTC and PCS User Galleries no longer work within the software. 

However, you CAN still use Make The Cut and Popup Card Studio if you ever purchased it, and have saved it and your registration key on your computer. You DO need to PROTECT your copy of the software and your registration keys for future use. Save your entire Make The Cut! directory as well as your registration number to a thumb drive or a CD, in case you need to install Make The Cut to another computer. Copy everything from this folder  C:\Program Files (x86)\Make The Cut! to the thumb drive.  Then you can then plug in the thumb drive to a new computer and copy these files to the new computer.

Make The Cut is full featured cutting software that will cut directly to many different cutters. It includes many advanced design features. The software imports and exports many different file types. There have not been updates to this software in several years, so plugins for newer cutters are not available. But the software is still quite competitive in the market for those designing SVG cutting files.  You can create your own cutting files, or customize or edit designs that you have. Then you can select all (ctrl+a) and export as SVG Ctrl+Shift+S). These SVG files may be imported into your favorite cutting software.

The User Gallery in Make The Cut is no longer functional.  However, you can download thousands of designs from that Gallery. If you own Make The Cut, see this document to learn how to Retrieve your registration key by Sandy McCauley. She has also made some of the archived gallery files available for FREE download:

Files contributed by Dave (AKA Berry One) Dave contributed files primarily in MTC format. There are a few SVG files among his collection that even those who do not own Make The Cut can access.

MTC Gallery Rescue by User Paul Zingah   These are primarily files in MTC format with PNG thumbnail images.

Learning Make The Cut

Support for  Make The Cut software is available in the free User's Manual as well as at the Make The Cut Forum,  here at the free MTC-Tuts Group (join to access free  tutorials and cutting files), and at my YouTube channel.  We are here to help you use this excellent software. There are features in Make the Cut that I cannot find in other software. And many of its features are easier to use in MTC than in other programs. Make The Cut works very well in creating or customizing and editing cutting files. And you can export your designs from MTC to SVG format to use in other software programs on many different cutters.

Let me know how I can be of more assistance in your use of MTC or PCS.

There have not been updates to this software in several years, so plugins for newer cutters are not available. But the software is still quite competitive in the market for those designing SVG cutting files.  You can create your own cutting files, or customize or edit designs that you have. Then you can select all (ctrl+a) and export as SVG Ctrl+Shift+S). These SVG files may be imported into your favorite cutting software.

The User Gallery in Make The Cut is no longer functional.  However, you can download thousands of designs from that Gallery. If you own Make The Cut, see this document to learn how to Retrieve your registration key by Sandy McCauley. She has also made some of the archived gallery files available for FREE download:

Files contributed by Dave (AKA Berry One) Dave contributed files primarily in MTC format. There are a few SVG files among his collection that even those who do not own Make The Cut can access.

MTC Gallery Rescue by User Paul Zingah   These are primarily files in MTC format with PNG thumbnail images.

Learning Make The Cut

Support for  Make The Cut software is available in the free User's Manual as well as at the Make The Cut Forum,  here at the free MTC-Tuts Group (join to access free  tutorials and cutting files), and at my YouTube channel.  We are here to help you use this excellent software. There are features in Make the Cut that I cannot find in other software. And many of its features are easier to use in MTC than in other programs. Make The Cut works very well in creating or customizing and editing cutting files. And you can export your designs from MTC to SVG format to use in other software programs on many different cutters.

Let me know how I can be of more assistance in your use of MTC or PCS.
