Data Interoperability is installed with two separate setups:
- Extension ArcGIS Data Interoperability for Desktop.
- ArcGIS Data Interoperability for Server.
To install Extension ArcGIS Data Interoperability for Desktop run setup.exe located in the similarly named folder provided with the ArcGIS installation media.
Installing Data Interoperability 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 Data Interoperability with a valid license and enabling it in the ArcGIS 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 you must first authorize it with a valid license.
Single use installations
Single-use installations of ArcGIS Desktop require an authorization file. If your ArcGIS Desktop Single Use installation is not licensed to use Data Interoperability, you can obtain an authorization file through My Esri.
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.
Concurrent use installations
ArcGIS Desktop Concurrent Use installations borrow a license from your license manager. If all licenses are currently in use by other users, you will not be able to use Data Interoperability, until a license becomes available.
To view your current licenses, open ArcGIS Administrator.
After installing Extension ArcGIS Data Interoperability for Desktop, you can enable it for each application in the suite.
Start ArcCatalog, ArcMap, ArcScene, or ArcGlobe; click Customize > Extensions in the main menu; then check Data Interoperability.
To install ArcGIS Data Interoperability 10.8.1 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 Extension ArcGIS Data Interoperability for Desktop on the same 64-bit machine and run them simultaneously.
ArcGIS Data Interoperability 10.8.1 for Server requires its own license and it is not interchangeable with a desktop license.
