Converting layer file 10.2 to 10.0 fails

Question asked by rgpugent on Jan 25, 2016

I am having problems with converting an ArcGIS 10.2 layer file to a 10.0 layer file.

I used ArcGIS online to import webmaptiles into my ArcMap 10.2.2. desktop version. In order to use them offline, I saved them as a layer file.


My colleague uses ArcMap 10.0, so I saved the layer file as a 10.0 version.

However, when adding this layer in ArcMap 10.0 he gets following error message:


Adding the selected layer file failed.

Possible reasons include that it may have been created using a newer version of ArcGIS and can't be opened in the version you are using.


What causes this conversion to fail?


I tried importing the webmaptiles using ArcGIS online on his computer, but this did not work either.
