I have upgraded MapInfo, and have lost my custom thematic templates

MapInfo Pro does not preserve or carry over any settings, including the Thematic Templates, from previous versions to a new version.

To copy your settings and custom thematics, symbols etc from a older version to t new version navigate to –


And copy all of these files to the newest version folder –


Where 1500 is the old version, e.g. 15.0, and 1900 is the new version, e.g. 19.0

Normally this is all that is required, however with MapInfo 17.0  they changed the structure of this folder and you need to run a special tool, see the MapInfo KB here -
