I am having a problem inserting an object into an aerial photo. I have a .dwg autocad file of my irrigation systems and want to overlay it into an orthorectified photo. I get the error message object not in the system registry. I have done this in the past and just can not figure this out any help would be great. running arcview 9.2

Mapping Center Answer:

It sounds as though either the .dwg or the orthorecitfied photo are not being recognized as a valid type of data.  Here is an online help topic that talks about registering COM objects -- look at the information under the subheading "COM and the registry".  You may have teh use regedit to register the orthophoto, or maybe even the .dwg.
