Resolve the error 'The image control points cannot be in a straight line. Unable to open table...'

Products Affected: MapInfo Pro

Issue

When opening raster data, MapInfo Pro™ may show the error: 'The image control points cannot be in a straight line. Unable to open table...'

Cause

This issue can be cause by selecting the incorrect projection when prompted during the opening of the Raster.

Resolution

UPDATED: October 20, 2017
To avoid this error, select the true current projection of the raster; failure to do so can at the very least show an incorrect geo-referenced image or even prevent it from opening at all, when the error referenced above is thrown.
