The MapInfo Pro v12.5.5 update includes important corrections to MapInfo Pro v12.5.1, v12.5.3, and v12.5.4. We recommend that all MapInfo Pro v12.5.1, v12.5.3, and v12.5.4 users update their version of MapInfo Pro. This patch is not valid for any pre-releases of MapInfo Pro or Runtime. There are no user interface changes to localized releases of MapInfo Pro v12.5.1, v12.5.3, or v12.5.4.

Prior to installing the patch:

  1. Ensure that MapInfo Pro v12.5.1, v12.5.3k or 12.5.4 is already installed.
  2. Quit MapInfo Pro if it is running (and MapBasic if you have it installed) prior to launching the patch installer.

NOTE: If you are using MapCAD tool, you will need to install an updated mbx prior to using the tool. The link to the mbx as well as a utility to install it are included at the bottom of the page. If you are using mbx, you will need to put it into the MapCAD folder (on a typical install it will be placed in C:\Program Files\MapInfo\Professional\MapCAD folder). Provided utility will automatically put it into MapCAD installation folder.
