CQ00165398: Cannot find valid addresses when using mtch indexes on the nationwide street database
Before installing this patch you must install the ArcSDE 8.1.2 upgrade for ArcIMS 3.1 users.
- From your Services control panel, stop the ArcIMS Tasker, ArcIMS Monitor, and ArcIMS Application Server (in that order).
- Download the updated ArcIMS 3.1 mtch.dll (ZIP format, 133 KB).
- Use WinZip to extract mtch.dll from AIMS31_09_intel.zip
- Open your Windows Explorer.
- Navigate to your <ArcIMS 3.1 install directory>\indexbuilder and make a copy of the mtch.dll file named mtch_31.dll.
- Navigate to your <ArcIMS 3.1 install directory>\server\bin and make a copy of the mtch.dll file named mtch_31.dll.
- Replace the following files with the patched one in this distribution.
- <ArcIMS 3.1 install directory>\indexbuilder\mtch.dll
- <ArcIMS 3.1 install directory>\server\bin\mtch.dll
- Restart the ArcIMS Application Server, ArcIMS Monitor and ArcIMS Tasker (in that order).
- Rebuild the geocoding indices for your data. The geocoding index for a shapefile is located in the same directory as the shapefile. If using an ArcSDE layer, the geocoding index is located in a user defined directory. Delete the existing indices. Open Author and use the Geocoding Properties button to rebuild the indices.
