error 824 executing script, licensing problem w spatial analyst and other extensions

Discussion created by davidhcmex on Jul 10, 2011
Hi, I need help doing a stand alone python script using arcpy geoprocessing functions:

I know that for some extensions (spatial analyst included)  I wont be able to use those extensions' geoprocessing
funtions without proper licensing (that is explained in http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesk...000z000000.htm)

The thing is that I am getting the error 824 using any geoprocessing function, even the
functions included in the basic arcgis package (for example arcpy.RasterToPolygon_conversion).

Is that normal behavior ? What can i do to work with those geofunctions that are not included into extensions (spatial analysts, tracking analyst,etc)

Thank you for you help !!!!
