MapInfo ProViewer v17.0.4 activation ?

  • 1.  MapInfo ProViewer v17.0.4 activation ?

    Posted 04-02-2020 07:21
    Hello,

    I am trying to install the MapInfo ProViewer from https://www.pbinsight.com/support/product-downloads/item/mapinfo-pro-viewer-v17.0.4

    for read only but it seems I have to use a license for it ?

    Please, give me a short instruction for the activation of this MapInfo ProViewer.

    Thanks and regards,
    Friedhold

    Hi Friedhold

    After installing MapInfo Pro, you should have two shortcuts in the MapInfo folder in your Start menu: MapInfo Pro and MapInfo Pro Viewer.
    If you use MapInfo Pro Viewer you don't need a license

    Do you see both shortcuts?

    One thing to try, that I found using this support article: Error starting MapInfo Pro Viewer: your subscription does not have any valid features

    Try to sign up for the needed free account here: https://signup.pitneybowes.com/signup/mipro
    And then try starting MapInfo Pro Viewer again.

    PS: Is there a specific reason why you didn't go for the newer MapInfo Pro v2019?

    Thank you Peter, I have signed up a free account and it works for me now!

    @PS: Is there a specific reason why you didn't go for the newer MapInfo Pro v2019

    => No, really not. Can I try to install the MapInfo ProViewer v.2019 with the ProViewer option or
          is there another download link for the newer MapInfo ProViewer v2019 ?

    I am working with first steps on MapInfo Pro 2019 .

    Thanks again,
    Friedhold

    Hi

    The MapInfo Pro v2019 installer also lets you install MapInfo Pro Viewer. We do not have a separate installer for MapInfo Pro Viewer. MapInfo Pro and MapInfo Pro Viewer is the same application that just gets started with different launch parameters.
