Are you sure you're using "ArcGIS" or ArcView 3.x?

'.avx' files are extensions which add extra functionality to ArcView 3.x products ONLY. They DO NOT WORK with ArcGIS!

If you are looking for a tool for ArcGIS, then go to ESRI's download page and look for the proper tool there (it will be in another programming language such as .net, VB, C++, .com, etc. and most authors will provide specific instructions on how to install it).

If, in fact, you are using ArcView 3.x, copy or move the .avx file (unzipped) to your ESRI/AV_GIS30/Arcview/EXT32 folder. Then, in an ArcView project go to File/Extensions and turn on 'check' the box next to the extension you just 'installed'. Read the documentation about how to use it (could be on the download page, an attached text file or even in the header itself (you can open these with the Windows Notebook)). On first use, always apply the extension to a COPY of your data - depending upon who wrote the extension and how, and what other extensions you have loaded, there is a possibility that the new extension may not work properly.

Then, analyse away!

> I downloaded a file that converts polygons to points based on the vertices. The file is .avx, and I searched for a place to add the file, but there were about three options. Even if I add them to ARCGIS, how do I access the tool?
