ArcGIS 10 SP 3 released


Service Pack 3 for ArcGIS 10 was released today and as usual I am picking some of the issues fixed and posting them here. SP 3 is a big one with 443 fixes for Desktop and only 25 for Server.

Here are the issues I have picked from the bunch.


  • NIM004239 - Hillshade tool with model shadows option produces artifacts when used with low altitude values.
  • NIM008882 - After copying and pasting a legend the copy loses custom legend settings.
  • NIM047093 - Cut Polygon Features tool fails on feature classes that have been upgraded from low to high precision spatial references.
  • NIM049488 - Weighted Overlay tool returns "Sum of % Influence Weights must equal 100" error when 5 or more input rasters are using user-defined % influence values.

To see the complete list of issues addresses go to resources page and for download go here. Desktop and Server download file is only 401 MB.

I’ll have a look at issues addressed in ArcSDE soon and I’ll post them here.
