To run the Viewer version of MapInfo Pro, the user must create an online account, which can be done from MapInfo Pro by selecting the "Pro" tab and then clicking on "Services"
MapInfo Pro Viewer supports all languages supported by MapInfo Pro.
Features and Limitations
1. MapInfo Pro Viewer mode allows you to open and view any MapInfo Pro workspace (.wor) file. In addition, MapInfo .tab files and other supported formats (such as geopackage, csv, excel, sql server, postgis, etc.) can be opened and viewed.
Version 17 of MapInfo Pro introduced the new "Customer Experience Program" which anonymously tracks user activity. This information is used to identify most commonly used features and areas for improvement. If running MapInfo Pro in Viewer mode, the User cannot opt-out of the Customer Experience Program. The full version of MapInfo Pro gives the User the option to turn off the Customer Experience Program from Pro > Options > Application Preferences.
Styling in Viewer:
The Viewer uses a subdued grey theme, which is quite different from the MapInfo Pro colour scheme.
The same MapInfoPro.exe is used to install the normal licensed version of MapInfo Pro, the trial version and the Viewer version.
While installing MapInfo Pro, if the license key is entered, both the Viewer and the licensed Pro is installed, MapInfo Pro being the default mode. There are check boxes to install either or both programs.
