When the Central Feature tool, or Spatial Statistics toolbox, is run on an ArcView license, it fails with the error message:
"Tool SelectLayerByAttribute is not licensed"
Inside of the Central Feature script, the SelectLayerByAttribute tool is used. SelectLayerByAttribute is not licensed to work with an ArcView license, therefore the tool fails.
This is not documented in the Central Feature tool documentation.
ESRI recomends that a copy of the Central Feature code be copied and a separate tool created when modifying the code.
