I was trying to geocode an excel table in which I have Zip code and Address as some of its attributes. I chose " US Streets Geocode Service Online(ArcGIS Online) Locator and got this error message: " The address locator is damaged. Resource is not available, regardless of authorization".
Can you tell me what I have to do to fix this problem?

I'm getting the exact same message and it won't repair the locator when it asks if I would like to repair the locator

There's a new default locator XML file you have to download-once you get the new file, here's what to do with it (it's an e-mail from ESRI Tech Support:
This is Kara M. with Esri Technical Support regarding incident #1240876. The reason you are experiencing this error message is that we have officially retired the tasks address locators. More information regarding the deprecation of the tasks locators can be found here:To resolve the initial issue of the error message you are receiving, please follow the steps below:

1. Close out of all ArcMap and ArcCatalog sessions.
2. Download the attachment from this email.
3. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.0\Locators and rename the DefaultLocators.xml to DefaultLocatorsOLD.xml.
4. Copy and paste the attached file into this folder.
5. Open ArcMap and retest.

Would it be possible to attach that XML file?

I could also just edit the XML file to include the block of XML that has changed.

I can't find the attached file you said I have to copy and paste into Locators folder. Also, in the Locators�?? folder I�??m seeing only "DefaultLocators.xsd" but not "DefaultLocators.xml"
