    Your CE5000 is not listed,  try one of the lower ones.  Maybe they will work.  Maybe not.  You may have to buy software.    If all you need is cutting software.  And you have Windows, you can get Vinyl Master.

    I got it working Mz. Skeeter, thank you for your quick response and helpful knowledge. much appreciated.

    Your first problem is Windows 10. I'm not railing on Windows because I'm 85% Mac user. I run my laser from a Windows 10 machine, with CorelDraw - and that last  update Windows pushed out was a dozey. I thought CD was broken. I don't know how many times I uninstalled and reinstalled the software, and I even uninstalled the stupid update, and it was never the same. I still have a huge latency issue when sending files to 'print' to the laser. Mind you, some files are very small - just simple text. So if you can, use another machine that is either Win7 or earlier.

    Definitely give SB a try. It looks a little antiquated and a bit like a kids program, but it's a workhorse and can get the job done.

    Keep us posted.

    yes that's exactly when I began having issues, shortly after the last update. then again I seem to take anything computer related like  its a rocket science course, when in fact it was a super simple set up... I got it working after a week of frustration, high blood pressure, and the invention of tons of new cuss words....and now I shall cut away. …..thank you for responding …….y'all are the best!...

    Which  cutting software?    Have you set the cutter up to your software? Have you plugged the cutter into your computer and tried to cut?
