Hello Everyone,

Since i was not able to fix this issue bymyself and i as well could not find appropiate help on the internet, i hope you can help me out. I want to use the "GPX To Features" Tool, which does not work for me, because of the following Error:


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "e:\arcgis\desktop10.5\ArcToolbox\Scripts\", line 259, in <module>
    gpxToPoints(gpx, outFC)
  File "e:\arcgis\desktop10.5\ArcToolbox\Scripts\", line 36, in gpxToPoints
    tree = ElementTree.parse(gpxfile)

ImportError: No module named expat; use SimpleXMLTreeBuilder instead

Apparently the module expat is not available, but it is installed in the Anaconda2 library i have installed, as well as in Anaconda 3 and the ArcGis Desktop.

I don't even know where to look up for it, since it seems, that his module is available.

Anyone have an idea to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!
