It was 8 years ago when Esri published a famous "Customizing locators in ArcGis 10" whitepaper. They also gave us more than 50000 lines of magic Xml covering US address styles.

I tried to make a rather simple locator style file, removing everything I found unnecessary. After a week or more I had something between 400 and 600 lines of xml file that I pushed to Create Address Locator geoprocessing tool.

I've got "Error code 42". Nothing more. A good sense of black humour.

Do you have any piece of advice how to get more diagnostics?

    ArcGIS 10.0 has been retired for a while now and locators have changed completely at least once since 10.0. There may not be too much experience with the older technology here. You may need to track the deltas you make and roll back if a test fails (test frequently) – Vince Nov 5 '18 at 21:38
