Coordinate System .prj files

Idea created by richstrazzo on Feb 26, 2013
    It would be nice to have the coordinate system .prj files available in ArcGIS 10.1 in the "\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\Coordinate Systems" folder like they were in ArcGIS 10.0 and previous ArcGIS versions. These files are used by many other third party tools and are necessary for defining the coordinate system for feature classes created by these tools.  In ArcGIS 10.1, the coordinate system information is now embedded in files that are inaccessible by the third party tools.  ESRI should consider installing all coordinate system .prj files in the next ArcGIS 10.1 Service Pack.
