I am trying to geocode addresses in ArcMap 10.1; when I try it gives me an error message ???The address locator is damaged, would you like to repair it? Access to this resource is forbidden, regardless of authorization???. I???ve spent several hours trying to troubleshoot the ???Access to this resource is forbidden, regardless of authorization??? part of that message. The other thread which mentions the issue talks about ArcGIS servers. Do you need ArcGIS servers in order to geocode addresses or is there another problem? I've never used this technique before, but it seems pretty straightforward.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
