Resolve issue where the Serial Number does not work for MapInfo Pro Advanced v15.0 (32-bit)


When installing 15.0 (32-bit), you would not be able to activate it with an advanced serial number. 


MapInfo 15.0 32bit does not recognize an Advanced Serial number starting with MA....... as valid. If we want to allow it, we will have to do it in a 15.0 patch.


UPDATED: September 11, 2017
If you install and activate advanced serial number on 64-bit version first, then 32-bit Pro can use it.

For now customer can try this workaround:
  • User should install MiPro as an Evaluation copy.(Can use it for 30 days)
  • Run a Regkey to enter Advanced Serial key and access code in HKCU and HKLM.
  • Activate License through command prompt with this command(C:\Program Files (x86)\MapInfo\Professional>MapInfow.exe -activatelicense C:\testlog.txt)
On running MapInfo Pro it will be in Activated state now.
