The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for Desktop is installed with two separate setups:
- The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for Desktop for ArcGIS for Desktop
- The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for Desktop for ArcGIS for Server
ArcGIS for Desktop
To install the Data Interoperability extension on ArcGIS for Desktop, run setup.exe located in the similarly named folder provided with the ArcGIS installation media.
Installing the Data Interoperability extension gives you immediate access to WFS and GML-SF (simple features) datasets. You can create interoperability connections for WFS and GML-SF data, add them to maps, and use them with geoprocessing tools. You can also use conversion tools in the Data Interoperability toolbox to read WFS services and read and write GML-SF datasets.
Authorizing the extension
Authorizing the Data Interoperability extension with a valid license and enabling it in the ArcGIS for Desktop application adds additional out-of-the-box support for over 100 GIS, CAD, raster, and database formats, and grants you access to the FME Workbench application.
To enable the Data Interoperability extension in ArcGIS for Desktop applications you must first authorize it with a valid license.
Single-use installations of ArcGIS for Desktop require an authorization file. If your ArcGIS for Desktop Single Use installation is not licensed to use the Data Interoperability extension, you can obtain an authorization file at the Esri Customer Care website.
After you receive your authorization file, open ArcGIS Administrator. Click Authorize Now, choose the option I have received an authorization file from Esri and am now ready to finish the registration process, click Next, then click Browse to locate your saved provisioning (.prvc) file.
ArcGIS for Desktop Concurrent Use installations borrow a license from your license manager. If all licenses for the extension are currently in use by other users, you will not be able to use the extension until a license becomes available.
To view your current licenses, open ArcGIS Administrator.
Enabling the extension in ArcGIS for Desktop
After the Data Interoperability extension is installed and authorized, you can enable the extension for each application in the ArcGIS for Desktop suite in which you intend to use it.
To enable the extension, start ArcCatalog, ArcMap, ArcScene, or ArcGlobe; click Customize > Extensions in the main menu; then check Data Interoperability.
ArcGIS for Server
To install the Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS for Server, run setup.exe located in the similarly named folder provided with the ArcGIS installation media. You can install it side by side with the Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS for Desktop on the same 64-bit machine and run them simultaneously.
The Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS for Server requires its own license and it is not interchangeable with a desktop license.
