Bug: When defining ArcSDE data as the data source for DDE, the Specify Input Data Source dialog is empty
hen using the Define Data Source wizard and defining the ReaderType Geodatabase_SDE for the ArcIMS Data Delivery Extensions or DDE, the Spatial Assistant dialog Specify Input Data Source is empty.
To use the Geodatabase_SDE reader, ArcGIS Desktop must be installed and licensed because DDE uses the ArcGIS API to read and write geodatabase data.
This is also true of the ReaderType Geodatabase_MDB.
- Install ArcGIS Desktop on the same machine as the ArcIMS Data Deliver Extension.
- To make an ArcGIS license available, start ArcMap or ArcCatalog on the same machine while defining the data source.
