MrSID files cannot be added in ArcPad or ArcView 3.x

Last Published: April 26, 2020


This issue is addressed in the ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 Raster patch.
When using the Get Data tool from the ArcPad toolbar in ArcGIS 9.1, the resulting MrSID images cannot be added to ArcPad. This problem also occurs when using ArcGIS 9.1 to export an MrSID file and attempting to add it to a View in ArcView 3.x.


The MrSID encoder is not writing the needed world files.
