Help with registering my MTC (Mac software upload)..... Mac USERS?

I've been sick for 2 years, and I've forgotten everything I once knew about my Zing, PLUS my laptop which held my MTC program and was lost along with all my files when the laptop broke down..I received a new registration number from the company.  but NOW, when I open the MTC program and try to register the software, I can neither PASTE the number NOR 'hand enter it'...I am using a Macbook PRO  (new to me) laptop) with Maverick OS.  
 have not yet connected it (bridged it) to my (about 5 years old) ZING...Is that the issue? I KNOW that the MTC Mac program does not 'run' on a Mac without help from a  "WINDOWS" program, but I don't know where to find it.  A SENIOR MOMENT (years now) from a 77 year old GRANNY!  HELP!

    Registration Keys are about 33 characters long, split up into three groups separated by dashes, and begin with "MTC"

    the MAC version of make the cut included all it need to run on a MAC 

    what happens when you attempt to paste the registration keys in do you get a message saying it invalid or similar
    when you select to copy it be sure you are not include a space at the beginning or end

    YES...   MTCKKSMRGAHHP7WZ etc..... The issue is that I can't successfully ENTER the reg. number in the 'register the product key' in the pop up box when first opening MTC...    
    I see NO 'Paste' when try to enter the # directly copied from my email into the reg. space.  The 'edit' for MTC  PROGRAM itself is 'inactive,  and the 'edit' for top bar for the MTC has only a 'copy', but NO paste...

    Ok I'm not a mac user but you would need to used either the shortcut keys for paste or the mouse buttons to bring up a menu the allows paste

    If that makes no sense not to worry I'm sure there will be a mac user allow that can explain exactly what to do

    Have them resend you your registration

    reinstall MTC and try again

    remember to restart your computer

    On the Mac you cannot just reinstall MTC, you have to use a cleaner program after you have removed MTC, then you reinstall it. There are some instructions I am sure in the Zing manual here:

    Still using MTC but slowly migrating to SCAL. KNK cutters including the Force and Maxx Air continue to be my favourites. Fluent in other cutter languages.

    Also cut and paste shortcuts will not necessarily work - they won't work with my imac. You can type it in - although that will not work with a pc. Use cut and past under edit if you do not want to type it out the long way. If you have El Capitan download the current version of MTC. I have not updated to Sierra yet - so I do not know if it will be seamless and if MTC will still function. I put a question out about that but neither @Andy or @SBryanW responded.

    I use MacBook Pro and if I want to copy/paste I copy then go to where I want to paste tap on where to paste once then again and hold - paste appears  - then click on paste,  hope you understand what I'm saying!

    Copy from your email to get it loaded in your clipboard but you can't use the shortcut keys - at least I can't on my imac because of wine interface. I have to do paste manually under edit in drop down menu or type in the code manually. This differs from what I would do in windows.
