FAQ: Why is my model broken after I install version 9.2?

Question

Why is my model broken after I install version 9.2?

Answer

The model contains one or more of the tools listed below. The model broke because these tools' signatures (their parameter properties) changed at ArcGIS 9.2.

Though these changes are avoided as much as possible, they will occur if they allow for improved usability, functionality, or user experience of a given tool in model builder.

For details on how to fix this type of error, please see the related FAQ article "Why is my model is broken, or displaying a red 'x'?"
