I believe you'll need ArcInfo Workstation installed, not just ArcInfo
Desktop (the 2nd pack of the two pack set)
ArcToolbox -> Coverage Tools -> To Coverage -> Import From Interchange
Then you'll have to export out to a shapefile or whatever else you want.

Subject: shrug-l: Import from Interchange File

I have downloaded a few ArcInfo Interchange files (.e00). I am using
ArcInfo 9.1 and tried using the Toolbox > Data Interoperability Tools >
Quick Import> and I get a window "Tool Not Licensed".

However the ability to import Interchange files was available in 8.3
Toolbox > Conversion Tools > Import to Coverage > Import from
Interchange File. It was very simple and easy...


Does any body know how to extract these files using 9.1? 


Thank you for all your suggestions.
