Advanced MapInfo Pro error - Restricted Copy Discover.exe


When I select to start MapInfo Discover, I receive the error "Restricted Copy - this must be used within from Discover.exe"


This is caused by running MapinfoPro.exe directly, with the Discover bundle licensing you MUST be starting -

C:\Program Files\MapInfo\Professional\Discover.exe

Make sure you are starting Discover from the desktop shortcut -

If you have installed the Discover - MapInfo Pro bundle (combined), you must recreate your shortcuts from the Start Menu>All Programs>MapInfo>Mapinfo Discover 

You should delete any existing shortcuts to MapInfo Professional.
