Instructions provided describe how to ensure compliance between ESRI's ArcGIS 9.x Desktop and Leica's LPS 8.7. The recent releases of ArcGIS 9.x Desktop; including ArcView, ArcEditor, or ArcInfo licenses, and Leica Photogrammetry Suite (LPS) 8.7 contain some shared libraries which work together if the products are installed in the correct sequence. If ArcGIS 9.x Desktop and any of its Service Packs are installed onto the machine first, followed by the LPS 8.7 and its Service Pack 1, there are no problems of compatibility. However, deviating from that order makes the products incompatible.
Users who have experienced any of the following incompatibilities should follow the procedure below.
- ArcGIS 9.x does not recognize raster data.
- ArcGIS 9.x licensing has been modified incorrectly.
- Attempting to start LPS 8.7 generates an error stating that it needs repairing.
Installing LPS 8.7 and an ArcGIS 9.x Server or Engine product to the same machine is not supported at this time. Leica and ESRI are working toward a solution for delivery as soon as possible. Return to either company's Web site for updated information.
If problems still occur using these two products on the same machine, contact ESRI Support or Leica Geosystems Support.
