Error in opening File Geodatabase on different machine.

Nov 2, 2011 at 3:28 PM

hi all.

I have converted osm file to file geodatabase format using this extension.

Every thing is fine on the system where i have installed this extension but if i want to open the same file geodatabase on different machine i got following error.

"Error opening feature class. Unable to create object class extension COM component""

Any ideas? I have found a Technical Articles from Esri here regarding this error.

I am using ArcGIS 10 with ArcGIS Editor for OSM 1.1.

Hello Irfan,

When the ArcGIS Editor for OSM tool is used to download data for OSM, the file geodatabase has hooks into the tools installed with the ArcGIS Editor for OSM extension. These cooks allow for tracking revisions, symbolization, and other OSM-related tasks.  To use the geodatabase in another system where the ArcGIS Editor for OSM is not installed, you need to run a tool to remove these hooks. The tool is the Remove OSM Editor Extension tool - see doc at OSM Editor Extension.

I hope this helps!
