IATA Reader for Windows
Step 1: Download the IATA Reader application
The IATA Reader is required to access your purchased publications. It can be downloaded for free from our Download Center (https://cargo-download.iata.org/?desktopreader=show)
Under Step 1, enter your email address and click the "Get Download link" button. You will receive a download link for the IATA Reader installer.
Please note that [Microsoft .NET Framework 4.x] is required for the IATA Reader to work. For Windows 8 users and up, this should already be installed by default. Windows 7 and Windows Vista users will have to install the Microsoft component before using the IATA Reader.
Note: Administrator rights are required to install this component. In many organizations, assistance from the Computer Support group will be needed.
Step 2: Download your purchased publication
With version 22.214.171.124 and higher of the IATA Reader (released on January 26th, 2018) the publication download can typically be done from within the Reader. You only need to input your product key. The download links for .mirdoc files are no longer necessary.
To download IATA Reader publications, select "Add Publications" on the left, then "Download"
You can also use the Download button in the menu at the top, or the Download button on the publication tile itself in 'My Library' view:
After selecting any of the above Download methods, enter your product key then click "Download":
If an error occurs, it is likely outbound communication by the IATA Reader is restricted in your organization. In this case, get assistance from your Computer Support group.
Or, obtain the publication as a document outside the IATA Reader (.mirdoc file), then install it in the Reader.
