VERIFIED SOLUTION i

Distinguishing MapInfo Pro from MapInfo Viewer application after the 17.0.2 release installation

Product affected: MapInfo Pro™ and MapInfo Viewer™ version 17.0.2 and higher.
 
Since the release 17.0.2, MapInfo Pro can be run in a connected viewer only (subscription) mode.

Two shortcuts are now available after the installation, named "MapInfo Pro 17 (64 bit)" and "MapInfo Viewer 17 (64 bit)".

MapInfo Viewer 17 (64bit) shortcut will ask you to create a Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud account at the first launch. An internet connection is therefore required to use MapInfo Viewer.
