Installing the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension

The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension is installed with three separate setups:

  • The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS Desktop
  • The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS Server
  • The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS Pro

ArcGIS Desktop

To install the Data Interoperability extension on ArcGIS Pro, run setup.exe located in the similarly named folder provided with the ArcGIS installation media.

Installing the Data Interoperability extension gives you immediate access to WFS and GML-SF (simple features) datasets. You can now create ETL tools using the Workbench application.

Authorizing the extension

Authorizing the Data Interoperability extension with a valid license and enabling it in the ArcGIS Pro application grants you access to the FME Workbench application.

To enable the Data Interoperability extension in ArcGIS Pro applications, you must first authorize it with a valid license.

Single use

Single-use installations of the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension require an authorization file. If your ArcGIS Pro Single Use installation is not licensed to use the Data Interoperability extension, you can obtain an authorization file at the Esri Customer Care website.

After you receive your authorization file, open ArcGIS Administrator. Click Authorize Now, choose the I have received an authorization file from Esri and am now ready to finish the registration process option, click Next, and click Browse to locate your saved provisioning (.prvc) file.

Concurrent use

ArcGIS Desktop Concurrent Use installations borrow a license from your license manager. If all licenses for the extension are currently in use by other users, you will not be able to use the extension until a license becomes available.

To view your current licenses, open ArcGIS Administrator.

Enabling the extension in ArcGIS Desktop

After the Data Interoperability extension is installed and authorized, you can enable the extension for each application in the ArcGIS Desktop suite.
