I'm trying to do some trouble checking on my machine, and am wondering if anyone has had any issues with Mike Urban related to the MOUSE module and the network connectivity?  I initially thought my issues were related to a .mdb that was just corrupted over time, but now I'm not so sure....

Creating new mbd file, no coordinate system (although I have done this with a coordinate system)
Collection system -> MOUSE only (not SWMM or Asset)
Unit System -> US mgd

I am unable to create any features as Mike Urban is not recognizing that the MOUSE module is active.  I can correct this by initializing the SWMM module (File -> Mode) and then turning it off again, but I shouldn't have to.  From there, the feature creation has no issues.

Another issue I am finding is related to the importing of ESRI shapefiles.  When I import node and link files, Mike Urban is not recognizing the connectivity of the links to the nodes.  Even after I run the Rebuild Network tool, the connection data is not existing.  When I try to manually connect the links to the node, Mike Urban crashes.  If I import just the nodes and run the Project Check tool, I get the following error:
"Error during initialisation with the following error message: The geometric network was not found.  Hint: You must Close all editors/tables and exit edit mode before running the tool, this error could also be caused by access restrictions or similar"

I am running Mike Urban 2014 Service Pack 1.  I have just run the Windows Repair Tool and the issue is still present.  Anyone else experience similar issues or have any suggestions regarding resolving this?

I had the same problem that MikeUrban did not recognize the MOUSE-Module and some other strange follow-up problems (problems with network-connectivity and running the project-check tool).

I think the reason was  that I had installed a clean ArcGIS 10.1 from ESRI and then added MU afterwards:

After lots of experiments, I deleted the ESRI installation an reinstalled MU using the ArcGIS software delivered by DHI.
To my surprise, this procedure installed also some ArcGIS 9 components as I could see by ESRI/patchfinder.exe.

I am not quite sure whether ESRI-Support will be happy with that mixed installation at my next call there, but at least it has fixed my MikeUrban issues.

Well that's interesting.  That explains somethings actually as I have been having some difficulties on the side with ArcGIS 10.1 crashing.  Been working with ESRI to come up with a fix, and one of the error reports I sent in indicated an error that they haven't seen / has been fixed since 9.3.
