The MapInfo Pro v16.0.3 update includes important corrections to MapInfo Pro v16.0, v16.0.1, v16.0.2 and Runtime. We recommend that all MapInfo Pro v16.0, v16.0.1, v16.0.2 and Runtime users update their version of MapInfo Pro. Please note that this patch is only for the 64-bit release.
Prior to installing the patch:
- Install MapInfo Pro v16.0, if not already installed.
- Quit MapInfo Pro if it is running (and MapBasic if you have it installed) prior to launching the patch installer.
- Create a temporary directory on your hard drive, such as C:\temp\MIPro1603patch.
- Click on the MapInfoPro16.0.3MaintenanceRelease.zip file to download the zipped installer.
- Extract MapInfoPro16.0.3MaintenanceRelease.exe to the temporary directory created in step 1 (such as C:\temp\MIPro1603patch).
Refer to the Maintenance Release Notes for detailed instructions and additional notes.
Right-click the MapInfoPro16.0.3MaintenanceRelease.exe file and select Run as administrator from the popup menu to install using elevated privileges. If a prompt for permission to continue displays, click Allow or Yes to proceed (if you do not respond and the message times-out, the install is unsuccessful).
This program starts the install wizard that leads you through the rest of the patch installation process. It is important to wait until the installation completes.

If you need GDA 2020 Datum Support in MapInfo Pro:
Geocentric Datum of Australia (GDA 2020 Datum) #1028 was added in MapInfoPro 16.0.3. NTv2 conversion is available for use as preferred method in version 16.0.3 and later. Two new grid shift files are provided in the links below: GDA94_GDA2020_conformal.gsb and GDA94_GDA2020_conformal_and_distortion.gsb to support NTv2 conversions for supporting GDA 2020 Datum. Download these *.gsb files and place them in the MapInfoPro Program Directory (e.g.: C:\Program Files\MapInfo\Professional\)
MIF\MID and *.WOR files will be versioned 15.0.3 and higher if datum #1028 is used.
Users of MIPro 15.0.3 will be able to use a custom datum definition based on 7-parameter similarity transformation published by ICSM.
NTv2 Transformations will NOT be available for use with MapInfo Pro 15.0.3.
