24164: <value> dataset will not be available for use in ArcGIS Pro 2.9 or earlier

You are sharing a project package, map package, or layer package that contains data that cannot be used in ArcGIS Pro 2.9 or earlier. Packages created using the commands on the Share ribbon contain 2.x and 3.x content, allowing users working with ArcGIS Pro 3.x to continue collaborating with others using ArcGIS Pro 2.x. Since ArcGIS Pro 3.x is a major release with new functionality, some datasets created or upgraded to 3.x will not be available in ArcGIS Pro 2.x.

The following are examples of dataset types that are not available in ArcGIS Pro 2.9 or earlier:

  • Annotation layers
  • Dimension layers
  • Utility network layers
  • Trace network layers

The <value> parameter refers to the dataset type.


Do one of the following:

  • If a backup of the dataset was created before it was upgraded, add the backup dataset to the map instead.
  • Do nothing. The data source of the layer will be broken if the package is opened in an older version of ArcGIS Pro.
