Installing ArcGIS Pro

ArcGIS Pro is a new application representing the next generation of desktop GIS software from Esri. "Pro" is quickly gaining all of the capabilities of its predecessor -- ArcGIS Desktop (a.k.a. ArcMap/ArcCatalog/etc.) -- and also features such long-awaited capabilities as multi-threaded, 64-bit processing, multiple map layouts and combined 3D/2D visualization. If you need to run the older software, see Installing ArcGIS Desktop.

Installing ArcGIS Pro is reasonably simple, but a couple of steps are required before you can run the software, which is not fully functional without logging in with an ArcGIS Online account that has been joined to the UVM organizational account (use the contact form to request an invitation to join the UVM org account).

Installation Instructions

Contrary to the official instructions, you should not download from myEsri (students do not generally have the required "esri access"). Here is what to do instead:

  1. Download an installer using one of the links below
  2. Run the installer, and accept the license agreement
  3. Click "Next" at each subsequent screen to accept the defaults (unless you wish to change the install location)
  4. Request a license using the contact form

If a newer version of ArcGIS Pro is available, you will get an upgrade notification the first time you run the software. Upgrading is a seamless process that generally does not take very long.
