Error: "There was a problem adding data to Map" when connecting to WMS

Issue:

When using Data Connect to connect to a WMS, the following message is displayed:
There was a problem adding data to Map" appears.

Causes:

This is a Permissions issue.

Solution:

  1. In AutoCAD, run the OPTIONS command.
  2. On the Files tab of the Options dialog box, locate and expand Temporary External Reference File Location.
Users must be given full rights to this location in Windows. the default is C:\Users\<username>\appdata\local\temp\.

FilePaths

Alternatively, some users will specify another temp location, such as C:\TEMP, and set that as the Temporary External Reference File Location.

 

  1. After making this change, you may need to exit AutoCAD Civil or Map 3D and try to connect again to a WMS.
