Known Issues:

  • .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 must be installed prior to installing ArcGIS Desktop.
  • Internet Explorer Requirement:
    Some features of ArcGIS Desktop require a minimum installation of Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 7.0 or 8.0. If you do not have an installation of Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 7.0/8.0, you must obtain and install it prior to installing ArcGIS Desktop.
  • Python Requirement for Geoprocessing:
    Several ArcGIS geoprocessing tools, such as Multiple Ring Buffer, use the Python scripting language and require that Python is installed. If the ArcGIS Desktop, Engine or Server setups do not find Python 2.6.2 on the target computer, it will install Python 2.6.2 plus Numerical Python 1.3.0 during a typical or complete installation. You may choose a Custom installation to unselect the Python feature to avoid installing this feature. See the install guide for additional information concerning Python.
  • Microsoft WinHelp patch for Windows 7 and Windows Vista:
    The following Microsoft patch is recommended, but not required, when using ArcGIS Desktop, ArcInfo Workstation, ArcGIS Engine or ArcReader on Microsoft Vista or Windows 7. ArcGIS Desktop, ArcInfo Workstation, ArcGIS Engine and ArcReader provide pop-up context sensitive help topics for tools, commands and dialogs delivered using WinHlp32. WinHlp32 will not function on Windows 7 and Windows Vista without this patch. Here is Microsoft Knowledge Base article 917607about this patch, which also contains links so you can download the patch. If you access pop-up context sensitive help without this patch being present, you will get a message from Windows prompting you to download the patch. For best usability, we recommend installing the patch at the time you install ArcGIS. For additional information, please refer to ESRI Knowledge Base article 32530.
  • All Operating System platform - When running in a 64-bit environment, ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS Engine, and ArcReader run as a 32-bit application.
  • ArcGIS Developer Help System on Windows 7 requires Adobe Reader 9.1.2 or higher. See KB37244 for more details.
