Hi Has anyone had licensing issues with the Java.exe component of Mapinfo desktop installations. Apparently changes to recent Java licenses mean they are now chargeable? Is this right? Should we uninstall Java now?

Hi Jeremy


MapInfo Pro does not rely on Java so we do not require you to have Java running on your desktop in order to use MapInfo Pro.

Spectrum Spatial does rely on Java so you would probably need to look into the deployment of Java on your server if you have Spectrum Spatial.
