Install options

You can install one or more language packs, install ArcGIS Pro silently, and uninstall the application and its components. You can also get updates for ArcGIS Pro by default when an update is released, or check for updates during a session.

Install a localized version of ArcGIS Pro

Running setup.exe provides a fully localized installation experience. Setup.exe is a bootstrapper executable that runs the core product ArcGISPro.msi and the language pack Pro<language>LP.msi as a secondary installation. For example, if you run setup.exe for ArcGIS Pro Spanish, both the ArcGIS Pro setup and Spanish language pack are installed. Additional language packs must be installed separately.

Setup.exe runs the ArcGIS Pro setup and automatically installs the language pack. An Add/Remove program item is created for each setup. The ArcGIS Pro uninstallation process does not uninstall language packs—they must be removed individually.

ArcGIS Pro supports the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Czech
  • Finnish
  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Portuguese (Brazilian)
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • Turkish


When running a localized ArcGIS Pro installation, the option to Run ArcGIS Pro when the setup completes appears on the Ready to Install dialog box. If the option is left selected, ArcGIS Pro starts after the installation of the core product and its corresponding language pack. ArcGIS Pro does not start automatically after a silent installation.

Install ArcGIS Pro silently using command line parameters

ArcGIS Pro can be installed without a user interface (UI) by running the setup using Windows Installer command line parameters.

ArcGIS Pro installation command line parameters

The following are the command line parameters that can be used when executing ArcGISPro.msi. Use these with the MSI command-line options as needed. The parameters are case sensitive and should be used as defined below.


The ArcGIS Pro installation location. If not specified, the installation location is %System Drive%\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro for a per-machine installation, and %System Drive%\%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Programs\ArcGIS\Pro for a current user instance (see ALLUSERS property).


Defines the installation context of the ArcGIS Pro setup, where ALLUSERS=1 specifies a per-machine install and ALLUSERS=2 is a per-user instance. If this parameter is not specified, the installation defaults to per user.

If a user without administrative privileges attempts to set ALLUSERS=1, the installation fails.


Specifies whether to enable participation in the Esri User Experience Improvement program. The default value is 1, which enables participation. To opt out of participation, specify ENABLEEUEI=0.


If specified, the BlockAddins registry value allows system administrators to configure the types of add-ins that ArcGIS Pro will load. Created under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Esri\ArcGISPro\Settings.

This property is only read during a per-machine installation; it is ignored if specified for a per-user setup.

Setting BLOCKADDINS=#0 will load all add-ins regardless of whether they have digital signatures; #1 only load add-ins that are digitally assigned by a trusted certificate authority; #2 only load add-ins that have been published by Esri; #3 only load add-ins from the administrator folders and those published by Esri; and #4 do not load or execute add-ins.


For per-machine installations only, set this property to 0 to disable automatic update notifications of ArcGIS Pro. If not specified, the property defaults to 1.


Specifies the host name of the license manager.


Can be "Viewer", "Editor", or "Professional".


Use "SINGLE_USE" to install ArcGIS Pro as a Single Use seat; "CONCURRENT_USE" to install as a Concurrent Use seat; and "NAMED_USER" for a Named User license.


During a silent, per-machine installation of ArcGIS Pro, if the authorization type is defined, this is set to True under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Esri\ArcGISPro\Licensing. When LOCK_AUTH_SETTINGS is True, the licensing settings in the registry apply to all ArcGIS Pro users on that machine; an individual user cannot make changes. To allow ArcGIS Pro users on the machine to define their own authorization settings through the ArcGIS Pro application, set LOCK_AUTH_SETTINGS to False.


Specifies whether a connection to should be available from the Portals page. To include the connection, set this property to "TRUE". If set to "FALSE", the connection will not appear on the Portals page.


To add one or more portal connections to the Portal page, set Portal_List="<portalURL1>; <portalURL2>". Use semicolons to separate portal URLs.

If "ArcGIS_Connection" is set to "False", this property cannot contain "".

If your portal supports HTTPS, it is strongly recommended that the Portal_List URL(s) uses HTTPS.


To specify the URL of the Named User licensing portal, set License_URL="<portalURL>".

If "ArcGIS_Connection" is set to "False", "License_URL" cannot contain "". To use this property, "AUTHORIZATION_TYPE" must be set to "NAMED_USER".

How to perform a typical silent installation of ArcGIS Pro

Run the following from a command line to install ArcGIS Pro in the per-machine (all users) context:

msiexec.exe /i <setup staging location>\ArcGISPro.msi ALLUSERS=1 INSTALLDIR="C:\MyArcGISPro\" /qb

The /qb switch provides the basic UI of the progress status and error handling; /qr provides a reduced UI; and /qn provides no UI at all. For full details, refer to MSDN's Command-Line Options topic.

Uninstall ArcGIS Pro

For Windows 7 and Server 2008, click Start > Control Panel, then Uninstall a program. Select from the list the program to be removed.

For Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 (if not using a touch screen), point the mouse to the upper right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Search, then enter Control Panel in the search box. Click Uninstall a program and select from the list the program to be removed.

For Windows 10, on the Start menu select Settings, then System > Apps & features. Select the program to be removed, and click Uninstall.

Uninstall the ArcGIS Pro products silently

To uninstall a product silently, use the following Windows Installer command:

msiexec.exe /x <{product code}> /qb

The product codes for the ArcGIS Pro suite are found in the registry at either HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Esri (for a per-machine install), or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Esri (for a per-user install), in the string value ProductCode under that product's registry key.

Get ArcGIS Pro software updates

  1. When Esri releases an update for the application, by default, a notification appears when you start ArcGIS Pro. You can click the notification message to learn more about the update, and start the update process.
  2. To check for updates in the middle of a session, click the Project tab and click About. If updates are available, you can run the update process. You can also turn off the option to check for updates when starting ArcGIS Pro.


For system administrators who want to disable automatic update notifications for a per-machine installation of ArcGIS Pro, browse to the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Esri\ArcGISPro\Settings and set the value of CheckForUpdatesAtStartup to 0.
