Unable to open a Seamless Layer and stuck in endless loop of 'Image files open error. Unable to open table
' errors - MapInfo Pro™
Products affected: MapInfo Pro™
MapInfo Pro™ errors when trying to open a Seamless Layer that was created in an older version of MapInfo Pro™ 64 bit or MapInfo Professional® 32 bit.
When opening the layer in MapInfo Pro™ 16, the following error appears: Image files open error. Unable to open table <TABLE NAME>.
After the errors stop appearing, some parts of the Seamless Layer appear. However when zooming into/out of the Map the errors appear again and after selecting OK the same error appears each time causing a loop.
Opening the seamless layer in previous versions of MapInfo work fine.
This is a bug in MapInfo Pro™ v16.
