Error: OpenInfoFile: Error opening s57.attl when converting S57 data
Solution or Workaround
When attempting to convert s57 data using S57ARC command this error occurs:
Arc: s57arc Ca49995a.000 ca80 OpenInfoFile: Error opening s57.attl Error calling OpenInfoFile Unable to initialize Object Catalog Bailing out of CONVS57
Missing directory and INFO files in $ARCHOME/templates/
The S-57 conversion commands: ARCS57, ENCREVISION, and S57ARC, require you to have INFO files installed in the arcexe80/template/s57 directory. These files were accidentally left off the ArcInfo workstation 8.0.1 CD-ROM for Windows NT and Alpha NT. You can find the missing files at the Support Center web site (click link below). Follow the instructions on that page to download these files.
