ArcGIS Desktop GML/WFS patch

Published: April 17, 2023


EsriĀ® announces the ArcGIS Desktop GML/WFS patch. If you are using ArcGIS Desktop 10.8.1 or 10.8.2 to read Web Feature Service (WFS) or Geography Markup Language (GML) files, this patch addresses an equivalency issue with 10.8 where it was possible to read (GML) and (WFS) open source data formats with the Add Interoperability Connection feature of an unlicensed install of the Data Interoperability extension for ArcMap. This patch deals specifically with the issue listed below under Issues Addressed with this patch

Issues addressed with this patch

  • BUG-000150861 - The Web Feature Service (WFS) and Geography Markup Language (GML) files require an activated Data Interoperability extension license to work in ArcGIS Desktop 10.8.1 or 10.8.2. The problem occurs with the Polish operating system.
