Clients installing the Map Magic plugin may experince and error
Sometimes Map Magic and ArcView do not communicate properly due to some automatic features not functioning.
ArcView displays error "MSW call DeleteObject failed" when selecting an item from a map. This issue also opens an MS Dos window stating "invalid parameter".
In many cases, your GIS map street names will not match the names in your crash record database. If the difference is significant, (i.e. ArcView can't see them as being similar names) then that location will not be geocodable. This is common when a state highway runs through a city. The city may use a local street name when entering crash data, and the map may use the highway name.
Map Magic is an add on to ArcView GIS 3.x and Intersection Magic 6.x. All Arcview GIS 3.x versions have a problem with Windows XP that affects operation with Map Magic. We've experienced "Segment Violation" messages; we've heard of "Can not convert string to number" error messages.
ESRI has overhauled the ArcView and ArcInfo product lines. The new ArcView is v8.x. Intersection Magic is designed to work with v3.1 or v3.2, the most recent versions before 8 was released.
In order for Map Magic to work properly, certain requirements must be met in ArcView GIS first.
