Resolving “Initialization error: unable to load the CLR (-2146232062)” in MapInfo Professional

Issue

During the installation of  MapInfo Pro, users may receive the error
'Initialization error: unable to load the CLR (-2146232062)'.

This error can occur even after running the setup.exe file by right clicking and choosing the Run as Administrator option and uninstalling and reinstalling .NET Framework.

"CLR" errors typically involve an issue with the .NET, one of the pre-requisite programs for MapInfo Pro..

Cause

This error may occur when .NET Framework can only be installed by a domain administrator and not a typical "user".

Resolution

UPDATED: September 12, 2018
Users should allow their Network Administator (i.e."IT" rep.)  to log onto the machine and uninstall and reinstall both .NET Framework and MapInfo Pro.
