    Welcome to the Make the Cut! (MTC) software support forum.   Couple of notes, you can use MTC or Sure Cuts Alot (SCAL) software where that cutter as well as other options.  The license to both MTC and SCAL are not transferable from one user to the other so have you purchased MTC or another program to use with your cutter?  Knowing that will help us to better help you either with MTC or pointing you to where you would get the best help with the cutter and your program if not MTC.

    Second, if you bought your cutter used off of eBay - you might want to see if you can contact the seller and find out where and when they originally bought their machine.  If they bought it from an authorized dealer, they can transfer their ownership to you with the dealer and you can access information from the dealer's site.  Note however that the Black Cat Cougars were replaced several years ago with the Silver Bullet machines.

    If you are using MTC, you can start by searching here on the forum for information that may have already been addressed and provide you with some helpful information to get you started.  Once you let us know further, we can provide some further information as  I noted.
    Go Vols!
