My custom projection does not appear in the projection list

Occurrence

I've added a custom projection line to my MAPINFOW.PRJ but it does not appear in the select projection dialog box's list.

Solution

Encom Discover's reprojection tools and Discover3D use a separate projection file (to MapInfo Pro) which you will need to copy and paste the custom projection lines into.
It is located at-

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Encom\Common\Projections (Windows 7 / Windows 8)

If it does not exist here, in older versions, it will be located in -

C:\ProgramData\Encom\Common\Projections\ENCOM.PRJ (Windows 7 / Windows 8)

C:\Program Files\Encom\Common\Projections\ENCOM.PRJ (Windows XP)


If it is still not listed check the format is exactly correct by copying the exact formatting -

"--- Customname ---"
"Projectionname", x, x, x,
