Where to find MapViewer serial number

KB no longer maintained - MapViewer is a Legacy Product. Legacy Products are still supported, but no longer receive new features or updates. Many of MapViewer's features have been moved to Surfer. Please contact support@goldensoftware.com with any questions.


There are many locations where you can find your MapViewer serial number. With your registered serial number information complete, we will be able to mail you announcements of upgrades and newsletters.  Registering your serial number will also ensure you always have access to your license information and latest software download through our My Account portal.

Please complete the registration card and return to Golden Software or register online at our web site.
  4. Download instructions:
    If you received a download only copy of your Golden Software product, the serial number was included with the download information that you received from our sales department.
