Hi,

I need to see some shapefiles in computer that does not have ArcMap. I create a project where my layer has labels. I read that there is not supported labels on ArcGIS Explorer 2500. So I create Layer files for all the shape files that has labels in my project. In my MXD I activate Store relative pathnames. I copy the shapefile, mxd and layer file to desktop (same information as my usb)

but when I try to add my layer file in ArcGIS Explorer I receive an error "invalid data source"
[ATTACH=CONFIG]25465[/ATTACH]

But if I add the same layer file from my usb, it can be added with no problem.

am I doing something wrong? I should be able to do that, right?

Hope anyone can help!

Best regards,

Diego Llamas
