Demo /MapWindow Lite
This version also has a demo application written in C#. It doesn't have the full functionality of MapWindow v4.8.8 (https://mapwindow4.codeplex.com/
). For example the toolbox is not available and plug-ins are not supported. But the demo does support the new Shapefile editor and the new option to connect with a GeoDatabase, like PostGIS.
