Installing ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop (ArcView Single Use)

The following topics will be covered in this tutorial:


1. Product Registration
2. ArcGIS Desktop (ArcView Single Use) Installation
3. Installing and registering ArcGIS Extensions
4. Installing ArcGIS Service Packs
5. Installing the French Supplement for ArcGIS 9.2
6. Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about installing/registering ArcGIS 9.2

Key points to remember:


- These instructions were developed for installing ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop on Windows XP Pro (SP2)
- The ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop software is contained on 1 DVD.
- The installation of ArcGIS Desktop (ArcView Single Use) is a four step process:
i. Install ArcGIS Desktop (Required)
ii. Install Tutorial Data (Optional)
iii. Install ArcGIS Desktop VBA Developer Resources (Optional)
iv. Install Crystal Reports XI for ESRI (Optional)

If you currently have any version of ArcGIS (8.x or 9.x) installed on your computer, you MUST uninstall it
before loading ArcGIS 9.2. The best way to remove the software is to insert the media DVD/CD, and
select the Remove option in the installation dialog box. Alternatively you can use the Add/Remove
functionality through your operating system to remove the ArcGIS software.

If you currently have ArcView 3.x installed on your machine, you DO NOT have to uninstall the software.

1. Product Registration (with Internet):

There are a number of registration options when going through the installation process. The easiest way
to register the ArcGIS product you have purchased is to access ESRI’s Customer Service production
registration gateway: https://service.esri.com/index.cfm?fa=registration.gateway prior to beginning the
installation process.

Follow the prompts on each page to register your ArcGIS product:

1. The first page involves choosing the product and version you have purchased. Click Next to
proceed to the next step.

3. Installing/Registering ArcGIS Extensions:

Extensions provide you with additional GIS functionality. Most extensions are optional products that are
registered or licensed individually.

• If you chose to do a Complete installation type, all the extensions have already been installed, so
you would not need to install the extensions separately.

• If you opted for a Custom installation type, you might have chosen to install only a few of the
extensions. If you decide you would like to install more extensions after the software has already
been installed, please follow the instructions below on how to Modify your installation.

• If you selected the Typical install type, none of the extensions have been installed. If you decide
at a later date to purchase or evaluate any extensions, please follow the instructions below on
how to Modify your installation.

NOTE: This section is designed for the user who has elected to buy an ArcGIS Desktop extension after
the software has been installed. As such, you will be required to register it

There are two methods for installing ArcGIS Desktop extensions on your computer. You can Modify your
current ArcGIS installation or if you are installing the software from scratch, you can do a Complete
installation (as outlined on page 5) to ensure that all features are installed on the computer without having
to modify the program.

To Modify the current ArcGIS Desktop installation on your computer:

1. Insert the ArcGIS 9 Media DVD into the DVD drive of


your computer.

2. From the ArcView Single Use menu, select ArcGIS


ArcView

3. Choose Modify option, and then click Next to


continue.

You have the ability to add and remove specific features


from the software. For example, if you wanted to install the
3D Analyst and Spatial Analyst extensions, you would
perform the following steps to complete the modification
process.

continue.

5. The next two boxes that appear will ask you for personal information. Enter all information that is
required, and then click Next to continue through both boxes.

6. You will be required to re-register your copy of ArcGIS Desktop (ArcView Single Use). The
registration number consists of 3 letters and a series of numbers (e.g. UNK123456789). Click
Next to continue.

7. Register the ArcGIS Extensions you have purchased, and then click Next to continue.

8. Similar to the initial product registration, you will be given an opportunity to evaluate any ArcGIS
Extension that you wish. If desired, place a checkmark beside each extension that you want to
evaluate. Click Next to continue.

9. The Automatic Registration will connect to the internet and register the software and extensions
you have purchased based on the registration files you have provided.

10. Click Finish to complete the registration process. The Registration Wizard will close and return
to the ArcGIS Desktop Administrator. Close the ArcGIS Desktop Administrator by clicking
the X in the top-right corner of the dialog box.

6. Frequently asked questions about installing/registering ArcGIS 9.2 (FAQ):

Q1: If my ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop (ArcView Single Use) is licensed for more than one computer can I
use the same authorization file to register on another computer?

A1: Yes. Once the UNK number(s) have been registered with ESRI and you have been emailed an
authorization file, you have the ability to transfer (via a flash drive or USB key) the authorization file to any
computer you wish.

Q2: Can I install ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop (ArcView Single Use) on a computer running Windows Vista?

A2: Yes. With the release of ArcGIS service packs #4 and 5, ArcGIS Desktop can run on Windows Vista.
To download the most recent service pack for ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop, go to:
http://support.esri.com/index.cfm?fa=downloads.patchesServicePacks.viewPatch&PID=17&MetaID=1409

Q3: Can I install ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop (ArcView Single Use) over a network?

A3: Yes. Each school’s network is different and so it would not be possible for us to suggest the best
possible solution for installing over the network.

NOTE: Installing ArcGIS 9.2 over a network is a highly specialized task that is typically reserved for IT
staff either at the individual school or at the school board level. To help assist with the installation,
a technical paper is available to provide information on deploying ArcGIS and Service Packs. This paper
discusses the deployment of ArcGIS 9.2 setups and Service Packs using Microsoft® Systems
Management Server (SMS) and Group Policy, including additional system requirements, suggestions,
known issues, and Microsoft Software Installation (MSI) command line parameters. Deployment in a
lockdown environment is also covered. Download the technical paper here:
http://support.esri.com/index.cfm?fa=knowledgebase.whitepapers.viewPaper&PID=43&MetaID=1216

Q4: Is there an easy way to install ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop (ArcView Single Use) on many computers
without a network?

A4: No. Without a network in place to install the software on multiple computers, the installation process
will need to take place on a case by case basis. However, when registering the software, depending upon
the license you have purchased, you may be able to transfer a preexisting authorization file to multiple
computers (See Q1/A1 above).

Q5: I don’t have internet access from home, is it possible to register the software without the
internet?

A5: Yes. Registering the software without the use of the internet can be completed via phone by
contacting ESRI Canada’s Customer Service department at: 1 (800) GIS-XPRT (447-9778). A customer
service representative will then register the software for you. You will however, still need access to the
internet because just as in the registration process mentioned above, an email will be sent to you.
