Compass Enterprise does not automatically load when opening MapInfo Professional


You wish to search and update the Compass Catalogue directly from within MapInfo Professional.

How do I enable Compass Enterprise to open automatically?


To start Compass Enterprise automatically, open MapInfo and navigate to Tools>Tool Manager
Click on the Add Tool button. A dialogue box will appear.
In the Title field type "Compass Enterprise".  In the Location field, click on the button on the far right
hand side, using the dropdown menu located adjacent to the 'Look in:' window, navigate to the
folder where the Compass Enterprise application has been installed.

By default Compass Enterprise will install to C:\Program Files\Encom\Compass Enterprise.
Select the MapBasic file (denoted by the .MBX extension) called 'CELauncher.MBX' and click "Open".

On returning to the dialogue box, a description of the tool can be entered if required.  Click "OK".
This will return you to the Tool Manager.  Tick both the "Loaded" and "Autoloaded" boxes as this
will activate the automatic startup with MapInfo Professional.

This initial need to run Compass Enterprise through the Tools menu for each new user is required
as MapInfo creates all the registry entries for the MapInfo Tools under each user name rather
than in the machine registry entries.
