Frequently asked question

Can ArcReader read PMF files that were created from a MXD file that contains references to WMS, WFS, or GML data?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


No. ArcReader does not support Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), or Geography Markup Language (GML) layers. These layers can be added to ArcMap using the ArcGIS OGC Interoperability Add-on.
