How to save a .GST geoset file in MapInfo Pro?

Answer:
It is possible to save a map as a .GST file from within MapInfo Pro

Please Note: The MapInfo Pro 64 bit version does not come with the files, GeoSet.MBX, Geoset.str by default. You will need to install a trial of the 32 bit version and copy the two files from the following directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\MapInfo\Professional\Tools" and then Paste into the MapInfo Pro 64 bit Tools location "C:\Program Files\MapInfo\Professional\Tools​"

1) Once in the Tool Extensions, Scroll down to the 'MapX Geoset Utility' tool by registering the Geoset.MBX.
 
2) Click both 'loaded' and 'autoload' boxes. 'Loaded' will add the tool to the tool menu only for the current MapInfo Professional session. Checking 'Autoload' will make the tool a permanent item in the tool menu.
 
3) Now that the tool has been added, it is possible to select 'save MapX Geoset as' to save the current active map as a .GST file.
