MapInfo Pro 17.0.3 and resolving slow launch time

Products affected: MapInfo Pro™

Issue

Some MapInfo Pro 17.0.3 users have experienced slower than expected startup times, compared to previous versions.

Cause

This slow startup can be caused by the loading of the "Welcome" splash screen and of the MapInfo Pro Tools.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, try starting Pro like this, which will supress the loading of the splash screen and the tools:

Launch MapInfo Pro from a Command line:
