    PLTS Cross-reference database problem

    SAFMU
      Hi,
          I am using PLTS data loader. I am trying to load my data from database A to database B. I managed to do it in the past recently after installing the service pack i seem unable to run the program. I have no problem creating the cross-reference mdb but when I click on load the data loader i got this error message "Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation" I was however able to run it on other machine install with PLTS 9.3.01 service pack 2

      Please assist

              Thank you for your response. Looking at the information you provided, you have two different machines running different releases of PLTS 9.3.1 Foundation. As of today, the latest release for PLTS 9.3.1 Foundation is SP2 Patch1 Build 775.

              I recommend that you do the following:

              1. Upgrade your machines to PLTS 9.3.1 Foundation SP2 Patch1 Build 775.

              2. Create your XRef databases.

              3. Execute data loader.

              What happens?

              On a separate note, do you have PLTS 9.3.1 Defense installed?

                  ArmandL,

                  At 10, we are no longer referred to as PLTS. We are now known as Mapping and Charting. Please see the link below:

                  http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/extensions/mapping-charting/index.html

                  Through this link you can request free 60-day trials. However, if you reside outside the United States, you will need to contact your local Esri distributor.

                  Regards,
                  Dan

                    Hi Dan,
                               Can you provide a link here to download the latest  PLTS 9.3.1 Foundation SP2 Patch1 Build 775.

                    In addition I do have PLTS 9.3.1 Defense installed within the same machine. How is this affecting the performance?

                    Thanks

                        Hi Dan,
                               I would like to know the rationale behind "PLTS 9.3.1 Defense provides XRef databases at PLTS_INSTALL_LOCATION\Mgcp\DataConversion and it also provides its schemas located PLTS_INSTALL_LOCATION\Mgcp\Schema\Gdb." Would this cause any conflict when I am using the PLTS? In addition, you mentioned 2 patches for me to download, is it advisable to download and install both within the same pc?

                          Daphne,

                          My rationale is this...you had mentioned that you are creating cross-reference databases. Your Source is MGCP.mdb and your Target is MGCP_new.mdb. If your databases match the schema databases that I referenced, then you could use the XRef databases that the PLTS 9.3.1 Solution provides rather than create your own. Saving you time.

                          When you say "Would this cause any conflict when I am using the PLTS?", what conflict are you referring to? What do you mean by conflict?

                          If you have PLTS 9.3.1 Defense installed (i.e. PLTS 9.3.1 Foundation and PLTS 9.3.1 Defense are installed on the machine), then you should be running the latest release for PLTS 9.3.1 Foundation and PLTS 9.3.1 Defense. As of today, the latest release for PLTS 9.3.1 Foundation is SP2 Patch1 Build 775. As of today, the latest release for PLTS 9.3.1 Defense is SP2 Patch2 Build 774.

                            Hi Dan,
                                     I have reinstalled ArcGIS and PLTS and updated it with the latest patch but the problem still persist. Is there any other possible solution to it?
