comment Why is ESRI.ArcGIS.Desktop.AddIns.ComboBox configured with a number of W's?
That is not entirely correct either. The size of the combobox is not the same when I use sizeString="aaaa" in stead of sizeString="WWWW" for instance. Maybe this question can really only be answered by esri. I makes no sense to me at least.

comment Why is ESRI.ArcGIS.Desktop.AddIns.ComboBox configured with a number of W's?
This is not (entirely) correct. I use 12 Ws which still shows all of my longest element of about 20 chars. And it does not answer the question about the 'why'? Is there some standard where W is a magic representation of string length? I would this to make sense.

comment Using SQL replication to replicate Geodatabases (in stead of ArcGIS replicas)
I believe this question is relevant. I think it just needs a more precise wording.

comment How to Unit test MapBasic Programs?
@MorganEllingham I agree that it would make very little sense to write any kind of standalone application in MapBasic. There is a team at the place I'm currently doing work for, which maintains a about 100k lines of code MapInfo/MapBasic application. Without unittests. That is amazing to me. And it's far beyond a little automation of MapInfo. :)

comment Which license esri server did I get the license from?
ok, good to know, but the question if I - on the client - can see which license server that provided the license.

comment Which license esri server did I get the license from?
As far as I can see there is no way to see if you checked out a license from the main license server or your failover license server in the ArcGIS Administrator. You can see the currently available license from one server, that's all (As I understand it).

comment What is the difference between Sub and a Function in Mapbasic?
@UffeKousgaard a MapBasic function can modify state (of a global variable for instance) other than the return value. As described on wikipedia on side effects

comment How to apply schema changes on Esri geodatabase two-way replica set?
Just to clarify: the python script would use arcpy for changing the schema. So no changes behind the back of ArcGIS when changing the schema.

comment How can I validate a table name on SDE with Oracle backend?
@DevdattaTengshe I have tried with arcsde 10.0 connection with the same result, so the backwards compatibility is not the problem. (not the only problem at least.)

comment Where is the File Geodatabase Raster Dataset file stored?
Thanks for the suggestion. However I believe that it is not the case in my specific case. It has the standard raster icon, not the mosaic icon.

So I need a license for each version?

comment Where can I download arcGIS desktop 9.3.1?
I can find only ArcGIS 10 software at customers.esri.com , not 9.3.1 (or any other earlier version for that matter.)

comment Where can I download arcGIS desktop 9.3.1?
Sorry about this stupid question, but I really can't find it. In my opinion esri websites are at the very best messy.

comment How to get the envelope of all the features in a feature class in Arcmap?
When I read the answers I realize that my question was not specific enough. I was looking for a tool to find the the envelope in the ArcMap GUI. Swingley's answer accomplishes exactly this in one step. However I am using ArcMap 9.3.1, which does not have that tool, but gkh's answer accomplishes this in two steps in ArcMap 9.3.1 (9.x I guess). Both Swingley and gkh's answers requires a INFO license. I didn't specify that either, but in my case that is fine.
