MapInfo Pro v15.0.2 and v16.0.2 Patch release
New patch releases are available for users of MapInfo Pro v15.0 and 15.0.1 and v16.0 and 16.0.1. This patch fixes some outstanding issues and is particularly important for those who have the Premium Services.
In v15.0: To obtain the patch you can click on Help > Check for Update in the software. Or if you are not running the software you can click here.
In v16.0: To obtain the patch go to the PRO tab on the About page, click on Updates.
Are you using the Premium Services?
For those using the MapInfo Premium Services, this patch will be important. Microsoft has made a change to how some of the services are accessed. This impacts the Move Map to capability. Installing this patch will permit continued use of this feature.
There is no change to the 'Move Map to' feature and no intended interruption of the service by Microsoft. The changeover is scheduled for the end of June, 2017.
For the technically curious the background to this is that this release uses the Microsoft Bing REST service instead of the Bing SOAP service. The Bing SOAP Service is being deprecated at the end of June 2017.
Do you have the latest version of MapInfo Pro?
If not, a free trial is available.
