ArcGIS Service Pack 1 - Raster / Spatial Patch

Published: October 10, 2001


This ArcGIS SP1 Raster / Spatial Patch is the ArcOnline version of QFE Aidt-81sp1-7. This QFE addresses raster and spatial issues with Spatial Analyst. ArcGIS Service Pack 1 is required to install this patch.


ESRIĀ® is pleased to announce this latest patch for ArcGIS Service Pack 1. This patch resolves several problems specific to Rasters and Spatial Analyst. It deals specifically with the problems listed below under Bugs Fixed with this Patch.

This patch replaces several ArcInfo 8.1 SP1 files; therefore, you must have the ArcGIS Service Pack 1 installed and running before you can install it. For the same reason, you should install it while no one is using the ArcInfo software.

Hardware Environment

During installation, you can either save the original ArcGIS Service Pack 1 files or overwrite them. If you choose to save them, make sure you have enough disk space. The estimated disk space requirements are:

Platform Disk Space
Windows NT-Intel 7.5 MB
