ArcObjects® is a development platform provided by ESRI that allows developers of other applications (such as GMS) to incorporate ArcView/ArcGIS® capability directly within their application. GMS can use ArcObjects® to access some of the same functionality in GMS that is available in ArcGIS®, providing GMS is running on a computer that has a current license of ArcGIS®.

The Data | Enable ArcObjects command queries the ESRI license manager for ArcView/ArcGIS® to see if a license exists. If a valid license is found then the ArcGIS functionality within GMS is enabled. If a license is not found then the ArcGIS specific features remain unavailable.

ArcObjects® is a development platform provided by ESRI® that allows developers of other applications to incorporate ArcView/ArcGIS® capability directly within their application. ArcObjects® is used to incorporate ArcGIS® functionalities into XMS software. This allows users to use ArcGIS® functionality within XMS software. In order to use ArcGIS® functionality, a current license of ArcGIS® must be installed. Without a license, much of the same functionality is available, the primary differences being that only the shapefile format is supported, and many of the selection and display capabilities are minimal.

"Error initializing EMRL_LicCheckMod.dll"

If the dll "EMRL_LicCheckMod.dll" fails to register automatically, selecting the Enable ArcObjects command will bring up the error "Error initializing EMRL_LicCheckMod.dll". Please contact Technical Support". To fix this, register the dll manually by following the steps below.

1. Select "Start | Run"
2. Type in 'regsvr32 "<directory where GMS 7.0 was installed>\EMRL_LicCheckMod.dll"
     The default location for GMS 7.0 is "C:\Program Files\GMS 7.0".  If the program was installed in the default location, for 
     example, this line in the Run window will be: regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\GMS 7.0\EMRL_LicCheckMod.dll"
3. Select OK
4. Restart GMS 7.0
