When adding a MrSid image as an image theme to a view, the following error message displays:
"Where is [filename].sid".
When the above error message is dismissed, the following error message displays:
"Error in image source [filename].sid. Unable to make theme".
When MrSid images are added to a View as an image theme, a temporary BIP image is created in the system's TEMP directory. If the contents of the TEMP directory are too large (> 100 MB), ArcView may have trouble creating the temporary BIP file.
This error can also occur if the TEMP environment variable is set to a folder, which is not 8.3 compliant. For example, 'TEMP = c:\documents and settings\users\local settings\temp' will evoke the problem.
