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

A localized setup (Setup.exe) includes setup files for both the core ArcGIS Pro product and a specific language pack:

  • ArcGISPro.msi
  • Pro<language>LP.msi

Both setups are installed by Setup.exe. For example, if you run Setup.exe for ArcGIS Pro Spanish, both ArcGIS Pro and the Spanish language pack are installed.

Two different Add/Remove program items are created for ArcGIS Pro and the language pack. Uninstalling one does not uninstall the other.

Additional language packs are installed separately. To install a second language pack, you run only the Pro<language>LP.msi file for the language.

ArcGIS Pro supports the following languages:

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

Note:

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.

INSTALLDIR

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 the ALLUSERS property).

ALLUSERS

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.

ENABLEEUEI

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.

BLOCKADDINS

If specified, the BlockAddins registry value allows system administrators to configure the types of add-ins that ArcGIS Pro will load. It is 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 will only load add-ins that are digitally assigned by a trusted certificate authority; #2 will only load add-ins that have been published by Esri; #3 will only load add-ins from the administrator folders and those published by Esri; #4 will not load or execute add-ins; and #5 will only load add-ins from the administrator folders. Level 0 is the default.

CHECKFORUPDATESATSTARTUP

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.

ESRI_LICENSE_HOST

Specifies the host name of the license manager.

SOFTWARE_CLASS

Can be Viewer, Editor, or Professional.

AUTHORIZATION_TYPE

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.

Note:

If all three properties (ESRI_LICENSE_HOST, SOFTWARE_CLASS, and AUTHORIZATION_TYPE) are used for per-machine install, licensing registry keys are created in the HKLM\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing hive. For per-user install, licensing registry keys are created in the HKCU\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing hive.

LOCK_AUTH_SETTINGS

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.

ArcGIS_Connection

Specifies whether a connection to www.arcgis.com 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.

Portal_List

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

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

If your portal supports HTTPS, it is strongly recommended that the Portal_List URLs use HTTPS.

License_URL

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 arcgis.com. To use this property, AUTHORIZATION_TYPE must be set to NAMED_USER.

At startup, ArcGIS Pro checks the license setting in the HKCU\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing hive. If the license setting exists, ArcGIS Pro opens using this setting. If the setting does not exist, ArcGIS Pro copies the license setting from the HKLM\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing hive to the HKCU\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing hive and uses that setting.

If you include the LOCK_AUTH_SETTINGS option, ArcGIS Pro copies the license setting from the HKLM\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing hive to the HKCU\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing hive, regardless of whether or not there is an existing license setting in that hive. In this case, ArcGIS Pro always starts with the license setting specified in the HKLM\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing hive. In addition, the user is not able to change the license setting.

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
Note:

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.

Additional examples of silent installation of ArcGIS Pro

Run the following from a command line to install ArcGIS Pro with licensing configurations:

Named User license command line

Named User licensing for per-machine installs

msiexec.exe /i <Path to msi> /qb ALLUSERS=1 SOFTWARE_CLASS=Professional AUTHORIZATION_TYPE=NAMED_USER License_URL="<portalURL>"

Named User licensing for per-user installs

msiexec.exe /i <Path to msi> /qb ALLUSERS=2 MSIINSTALLPERUSER=1 SOFTWARE_CLASS=Professional AUTHORIZATION_TYPE=NAMED_USER License_URL="<portalURL>"

Concurrent Use license command line

Concurrent Use licensing for per-machine installs

msiexec.exe /i <Path to msi> /qb ALLUSERS=1 ESRI_LICENSE_HOST=yourlicenseserver SOFTWARE_CLASS=Professional AUTHORIZATION_TYPE=CONCURRENT_USE

Concurrent Use licensing for per-user installs

msiexec.exe /i <Path to msi> /qb ALLUSERS=2 MSIINSTALLPERUSER=1 ESRI_LICENSE_HOST=yourlicenseserver SOFTWARE_CLASS=Professional AUTHORIZATION_TYPE=CONCURRENT_USE

Note:

The ArcGIS Pro Licensing Service setup is required for a per-user installation of ArcGIS Pro to work offline with a Concurrent Use license.

Single Use license command line

Single Use licensing for per-machine installs

Install setup

msiexec.exe /i <Path to msi> /qb ALLUSERS=1 SOFTWARE_CLASS=Professional AUTHORIZATION_TYPE=SINGLE_USE

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 and Server 2016, 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

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.

To check for updates in the middle of a session, click the Project tab. In the list on the left, 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.

Note:

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.
