comment ArcGIS python add in to call python script for importing mdb data
What happens when you replace "C:\Users\xxx\Documents\AddIns\pythonAddin\Install\xxx" with r"C:\Users\xxx\Documents\AddIns\pythonAddin\Install\test.py" and do something like print "worked!" as your total code in test.py? Make sure that you have the Python window open to see any errors as you click the button.

comment ArcPy script using 'symbology.addAllValues()' failing
Even though your code is classified, in order for us to be able to help you with this, we will need you to develop a code snippet using unclassified code that produces the same error, so that you can present that precise code and error message here.

comment Downgrading WRF Hydro GIS Pre-Processing Tools 2.2 to work with ArcGIS Desktop 10.0?
@EvilGenius That's a good idea, which I think I follow. However, in this case "The toolbox is split into two Python scripts. The ‘GEOGRID_STANDALONE.pyt’ script is the python toolbox that contains code that ArcGIS uses to handle and validate parameters. This tool calls functions in the ‘wrf_hydro_functions.py’ script.". My plan would be to not touch wrf_hydro_functions.py and to simply handle and validate parameters using Python script tools instead of the Python Toolbox (GEOGRID_STANDALONE.pyt).

comment ArcMap Label Help - Label from X/Y Coordinate
I'm not able to follow what you are trying to describe. Would you be able to edit your question to include a picture and more words of explanation about precisely what you have in your attribute table and what you want to see on your map, please?

comment UpdateCursor Not Working
When presenting code snippets for help here I think it is usually best to do so without try/except statements because they can mask the errors that Python provides you. Those errors are very helpful for future visitors to find when they encounter the same problem.

comment Worldwide Holidays in different Languages
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because there does not seem to be a GIS component to it.

comment Worldwide Holidays in different Languages
I think this is definitely off-topic here. My feeling is that Travel would be the site to look to for an answer to this.

@bleegp Would you be able to edit your question to expand your code snippet to one that works up to where you are stuck, please?

comment Change Data Source of Raster Layer Added to Map Display? Unexpected default
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Your answer here references a layer object (obj_lyr) and library (os) that the asker is not using. I recommend that you edit your answer to more closely address the question.

comment Updating (or using) Arcgis 9 Extension to Arcgis 10.1
Alternatively, you could try contacting the author of that tool, who may already have a suitable version, or be in a position to quickly create one.

comment Updating (or using) Arcgis 9 Extension to Arcgis 10.1
If there is not a later version of that extension available, then I think you should try installing the version built for 9.x with 10.1. I think there is a chance that it will just work but if it does not then maybe it will give you some information to debug/upgrade it.

comment JoinField General Function Failure[featureclasName]
I have not questioned whether a table called "tb3" exists, the problem is that the code snippet that you presented to us uses a variable called tb3 that you do not set.

comment About defining coordinate reference system
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour where you will see that we look for just one question per question. There is an edit button beneath your question that you can use to remove one of your questions to leave just the one which you would like to see answered first.

comment JoinField General Function Failure[featureclasName]
A simple Join Field would be running that tool from its tool dialog. Your comments on my answer about this being run from a Python toolbox leave me wondering whether the code you have presented is just a few lines that you have copied from that *.pyt or a standalone code snippet in a *.py that we can run from an IDE like IDLE. I think you will make much quicker progress towards getting the parts of your application working if you focus on making sure that test snippets from it each work.

comment Why do northern california river mouths face north west?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about general Geography rather than Geographic Information Systems.

comment Why do northern california river mouths face north west?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Although your question is about Geography, it does not seem to be about Geographic Information Systems: meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3416/… I think your question may be a better fit for Earth Science.

comment Is there any web-gl js libraries for creating 3D bar overlap city map?
Your question still seems to be seeking a list of options for you to choose from, and three have already been offered. Our remit (see the help center) is focussed Q&A about actual problems you face using GIS rather than putting together lists of software options, etc. If you try one of the options already offered and get stuck then that should provide you with suitable content for a new Q&A about it.

comment JoinField General Function Failure[featureclasName]
You have not presented a working code snippet, and I suspect that your code is not working (when my test does) because you may be masking error messages using try/except statements. I cannot see how your line fd = [f.name for f in arcpy.ListFields(tb3)] would fail to throw an error because you have not set tb3 from what I can see.

comment type mismatch: 'esri_8' when using field calculator
I'm confused by your last comment. Perhaps you can turn it into a slightly expanded self-answer to let us know what you did to get past where you were stuck.

comment How do I color XY coordinates with different colors in ArcGIS for Desktop?
I think you should look into Unique Values symbology.
