Im trying to run geostatistical analyst's IDW but keep getting the following error:
'you do not have the necessary license to execute the tool'
followed by:
'adding this item is not supported or the application that opens it is not found'

I have checked my ArcGIS desktop manager and it says i have a valid license for geostatistical analyst. Im confused as to why it doesnt work. Cheers
