How 2 add FDL2 ArcMap? / Data Interop Extn. IFMEWorkspaceFactory removed in Arc10;

Discussion created by mravichandran on Sep 27, 2013
dear Readers,

thank you for taking the time to read this question.  I am wondering how to add a programmatically created .FDL file into ArcMap.

our application programmatically creates an FDL file and it is automatically saved in: C:\Users\FirstName.LastName\AppData\Roaming\Safe Software\Interoperability folder.

as soon as the file is saved, a refresh of the Data Interop folders in an open arcmap session lets the users see the newly created FDL file.

The users wanted to see whether the application will be able to add the programatically created new FDL file to arcmap TOC.

http://help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/conceptualhelp/index.html#/type_changes_between_9_3_and_10/000100000408000000/


Right now, the users can do a refresh, select the newly created FDL, and drag it into ArcMap and start using it.

after digging deep, it is evident that workspace factory associated with a FDL file is not present in ArcMap 10.

trying to add .dlls present into the project was not an option because they would not add.

searching the registy for "Interoperability" or "esriDatasources" did not yield any meaningful directions.

any suggestions would be appreciated.

thank you for your time.

regards
ravi.
