How can I run MapCortex Free Edition application?

MapCortex Free Edition (which is essentially the same as MapCortex BETA) is a forthcoming Windows Store application, which means one is required to have a Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 R2 or  Windows Server 2016 to run it. The application will soon be available from the Windows Store, free of charge.

MapCortex Free Edition can also be run on Microsoft Surface in fact, owing to the touch-screen components of that hardware the user may be able to create any type of drawings on the map by using the Surface touch-screen interface.

However, owing to the screen size requirements and the composition of the icons MapCortex Free Edition is not designed to be used as an UWP application - though it runs fine with Windows 10.

If you don't have Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 based computer then I am afraid you will not be able to use the MapCortex Free Edition client. However, it is planned to create a similar, yet less sophisticated application for web browsers, built upon either on Google Maps or Nokia HERE Maps - but that is nowhere near at the implementation horizon.
