ArcGIS Engine 9.2 Dynamic Display Caching Improvements Patch
ESRI® announces the ArcGIS Engine 9.2 Dynamic Display Caching Improvements Patch for ArcGIS Engine and ArcGIS Desktop. This patch solves display-pauses that may happen while panning, zooming and roaming. Through improved cache performance these actions will now be smooth and uninterrupted. We recommend that all who use Dynamic Display, download and install this Patch at their earliest convenience to ensure the highest quality experience when working with ArcGIS 9.2. Users should apply this patch to the development and the deployment machines running your customer dynamic display application built using ArcGIS Engine or ArcGIS Desktop. It deals specifically with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this Patch.
Issues Addressed with this Patch
NIM005549 - Dynamic Display pauses during panning, zooming and roaming.
