Re: Connect to Raster Data

Try this -

 

In your options make a note of your Temporary External Reference File Location" under the Files tab and get Full Control permissions to this folder.

 

There are some files that get created and attributes set when attaching raster images.

This issue is caused by lack of permissions. If you go into

Options menu>Files tab and locate “Temporary External Reference File Location”.

This revealed the path where program copies it. Users must be given full rights to this location

(C:\Users\<username>\appdata\local\temp\).

As an alternative some people recommend creating another temp location such as C:\TEMP and setting “Temporary External Reference File Location” to there while ensuring user has full permissions. More about permissions could be found here.

This problem was just solved for me this morning in 2012. Make sure that you have permission to access the folder where your temporary files are stored. For example, I had mine set to a network drive and did not have full control over that drive & folder. I made a folder on the C: drive called _{my initials}_Temp and used the Options settings to direct files there.

Immediately my FDO worked correctly for both rasters and shapefiles.

My deepest thanks to Tatiana Machado of the Autodesk Subscription Help Team for solving this.

Please see if this helps.
