comment Can multiple users access ArcGIS styles on server at same time or only one?
I am definitely NOT confusing style file with layer file. Data added to map automatically inherits symbology from a style file if the symbol has the same name as the feature class being added. As I've mentioned in my answer, there are exceptions.

Did you already use up your 3D analyst trial?

comment Creating TIN in ArcGIS for Desktop?
For LiDAR you will need to use a terrain dataset which is designed to hold a very large amount of data. Once you've created a terrain dataset, convert XYZ files to points and load them into the dataset.

comment What does an asterisk (*) mean when shown beside a field name in the attribute table?
I stand corrected. We did index those fields. THanks

comment 3D soil profile from borehole information
3D Anlyst is not suitable for this type of work. It is possible with extreme effort and some programming skills but you are much better off using a specialized software that can handle boroheles/drill holes, assays and allows building if lithologies from such data.

Thanks! SO i guess those get generated automatically. Because I did not create any indexes.

comment LiDAR point cloud to 3D model of street
This is not possible in ArcGIS with 3D Analyst. As @MichaelMiles-Stimson suggests, perhaps the city engine may work. Lidar cloud alone wont be enough. You will need a way to classify points as being a "member" of this or that structure; there are Lidar technologies that also record RGB values with each point - something like that may be helpful but I beleive this data is quite expensive. with just a cloud and whatever default Lidar classes you will have at your disposal, you may heave to a lot of manual modelling, classifying, QAQC.

@Martin - That's a legit answer. Please make this comment an answer.

Python or ArcObjects solution is fine. I am looking for a quick click-identify-fix tool.

comment Is it possible to add values+symbols to an imported symbology in ArcMap?
Then you should be able to just hit "Complete List" in the dialog and those values should appear then add them to your symbology as I now explained in my answer.

comment Is it possible to add values+symbols to an imported symbology in ArcMap?
You have to add any new symbology that does not yet match any existin features manually. Import your layer file then Add Values -> Add to List -> Manually type the value and add to list. This will create a new additional symbol in the list but there will be no features that match it until you create them.

comment Is it possible to add values+symbols to an imported symbology in ArcMap?
Yes you have to. IN order to add new values, the layer has to already contain those values. Use the Add Values -> Add to List button to add non existing values. This way your original symbology is preserved and you can add new non-existing values. When editing and you add new features whose attributes match the new symbology they will inherit the newly created symbols. Alternatively, and this is the better way, you can setup Sybtypes in the parent geodatabase.

After you import the layer file, click the "Count" heading in the Symbology list of the Symbology tab. Is the cound beside each symbol greater than zero? (See screen capture above)

comment Is there any reason not to upgrade to Windows 8.1?
Personally, I am skipping the whole Windows 8 train wreck. Windows 7 is working fine so no reason to upgrade. If you do any custom add-in development, I would advise to make sure that VS express 2010 can still be installed and functioning and that tools compile and work correctly in Windows 8.1.

comment Calling an ad-hoc model with vb.net
You 100% certain strTBX contains the correct path? I would say debug the add-in. Break on first line and step line by line. It has to crash somewhere.

Do you get an error? If so can you you post the code and indicate the line it dies on?

comment Volume calculations in ArcMap 10.1 vs AutoCad Civil3d?
I no longer have Civil 3D so I can't do a comparison. I did a few projects back in 2010 where I calculated volume excavated from a pit using both 3D Analyst and Civil 3D and they were close but not exact. We actually compared these calculation with volume of material extracted from the pit by calculating load on trucks and came pretty close. That was done with ArcGIS 9.3 and Civil 3D 2010.

comment ArcGIS 3D Security Camera Analysis
I highly recommend using SketchUP for these types of applications. It's very intuitive and surprisingly powerful.
