Requirements and Installation Instructions

You must have a 64-bit version of Windows including any versions for personal, business or server use. Note that the installer can be used to install either the ProViewer or the full version of MapInfo Pro.

To install:

  1. Unzip the downloaded file and run setup.exe
  2. Follow the steps of the install wizard. On the step where you are asked to put in a serial number and access code, check the box which says: “I do not have a serial number”.
  3. Once the installation is complete, launch the viewer using the shortcut for the “MapInfo Viewer”.
  4. You will then be asked to either login or establish an account. You may already have an account if you have a previously set one up for the purpose of billing or using subscription plan for geocoding and drivetime services.

*Tech support is not available with the free viewer unless your organization has support through paid copies of MapInfo Pro.
