Error Message

Clicking the Edit Contacts button on the Metadata author, Point of contact, and Distributor pages in the ISO metadata editor causes the following error:

"Component 'MSADODC.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

This error may also be encountered by double-clicking the ISOEditContacts.exe in the arcexe82\Metadata\ISOWizard folder. The Edit ISO Contacts aplication is used to modify the contents of the ISO metadata editor's contacts database.

Cause

ArcGIS 8.2 does not install the msadodc.ocx and msdatgrd.ocx files, which are required by the Edit ISO Contacts application. These files are installed by Office 2000 SR1, Visual Basic 6, Visual C++ 6, Visual Studio 6, and Office 2000 Developer.

Solution or Workaround

Download the ISO Metadata Editor Patch from ESRI Patches and Service Packs link, below. Click on ArcInfo Desktop > ISO Metadata Editor Patch.

Follow setup instructions; the required files will be installed if they are not already present on your computer.
