Getting to Know ArcView starts then stops


The Getting to Know ArcView (GTKAV) application runs for a few seconds after starting and then shuts down.


Possible conflict with default.apr files from another version of ArcView.

Solution or Workaround

  1. Click Start > Find > Files or Folders.
  2. Search for default.apr.
  3. If you find additional user default.apr files, rename them to default.bak

    Do not rename, move, or delete the default.apr in the AV_GIS30\Arcview\ETC directory

  4. Start GTKAV again. It should run without a problem.
