Creating Start Menu shortcuts in Windows with a silent installation of MapInfo Pro 17.0.3

Products affected: MapInfo Pro, MapInfo Pro Viewer
 
During a silent installation of MapInfo Pro, it is possible to choose which shortcuts to create between MapInfo Pro and MapInfo Pro Viewer in the Windows Start Menu.

From the MapInfo Pro v17.0.3 release note, page 81:

MPRO=True creates the MapInfo Pro shortcut in the Start menu and sets the default file association of registered MapInfo Pro file types such as workspace (*.wor) or table (*.tab) with MapInfo Pro.
MVWR=True creates the MapInfo Viewer shortcut in the Start menu. It also sets the default file association of registered MapInfo Pro file types such as workspace (*.wor) or table (*.tab) with the new MapInfo Viewer (subscription) if the MPRO parameter above is not set to True.
For details of this new feature, see MapInfo Pro Viewer page 8.

Note: If both the MPRO and MVWR parameters above are set to True, MPRO takes precedence and MapInfo Pro would be the default application associated with MapInfo Pro registered file types such as workspace (*.wor) or table (*.tab).
