Hello, I keep on getting the same error message when creating an Address Locator in ArcMap 10.4. Can anyone help? I have already gone through the list below and cannot see what I am doing wrong. 

"000042 : Failed to create the address locator. ArcGIS 10.4

The address locator cannot be created.

Solution

Check that you have the following:

  • Permission to write to the disk or database
  • Enough disk space for the address locator you are trying to create
  • Valid network or database connection
  • Valid geocoding rule files
  • Valid address locator style"

Do a quick google search on " esri error 000042" you'll get several returns worth looking into.

That should just about do it....

That's not giving you much to work with and I don't use the old style locators anymore.  You may need to contact tech support and provide them some sample data with which to emulate your workflow.

Can you provide a sample of what you address locator source data looks like - maybe 10 records?
