Installing the Service Pack


Installation Notes


    It is important to keep the all versions of ArcGIS products installed on a machine in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

    To find out what products are currently installed on your machine, download the ServicePackFinder91.exe utility and run it from your local machine. This utility provides a report detailing which ArcGIS products are currently installed on your machine. This will help determine which product Service Packs you should install on your machine. The report also details which service packs have been installed. The report is displayed when the utility is run and a servicepack.txt log file is created in your temp folder. The Service Pack Finder utility searches for the following ArcGIS products.


      ArcGIS Desktop (ArcView, ArcEditor, ArcInfo) Includes the ArcReader fixes for the ArcReader FEATURE.
      ArcGIS Desktop Developer Kit
      ArcGIS Engine Runtime
      ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit
      ArcGIS Server
      ArcGIS Server .NET ADF
      ArcGIS Server Java ADF
      ArcGIS Tutorial Data
      ArcReader standalone
      ArcIMS
      ArcSDE


    NOTE (ArcIMS and ArcSDE users): If you use ArcIMS 9.1 or ArcSDE 9.1, you must also install ArcIMS 9.1 Service Pack 1 or ArcSDE 9.1 Service Pack 1. For example, if you use ArcIMS 9.1 and ArcGIS 9.1 Desktop, install both ArcIMS 9.1 Service Pack 1 and ArcGIS 9.1 Desktop Service Pack 1. Since ArcIMS 9.1, ArcSDE 9.1 and the ArcGIS 9.1 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

    NOTE (ArcGIS Server users): If you have ArcGIS Server 9.1 and any other ArcGIS product installed on your machine, we recommend that you install the ArcGIS 9.1 Server Service Pack before installing the remaining Service Packs. Since ArcGIS Server and the ArcGIS 9.1 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

    NOTE (ArcView 9.1 Evaluation Edition users): This Service Pack is supported with the ArcView 9.1 Evaluation Edition.

    NOTE (ArcGIS Server, Engine and Reader users on UNIX): This Service Pack is only available on Windows; it is not available on the Sun or Linux platform. Please note that the Windows 9.1 SP1 clients are fully compatible with the Sun and Linux 9.1 servers for these products. Also, the 9.1 Sun and Linux clients are compatible with the 9.1 SP 1 Windows servers.

    If you are using ArcSDE data sources, you must apply the ArcSDE 9.1 SP 1 client install for your particular platform. Since the ArcGIS 9.1 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

Installation Steps


    ArcGIS 9.1 must be installed before you can install this Service Pack. This Service Pack is cumulative and contains all fixes from the pervious patches. If you already have a previous patch installed, you may apply this Service Pack over it to update the required files.

    To Install:


    1. Make sure you have write access to your ArcGIS installation location, and that no one is accessing it.

    2. Download the appropriate files to a location other than the installation folder:

      ArcGIS Desktop (ArcInfo, ArcEditor, ArcView)
      ArcGISDesktop91sp1.msp 62 MB
      ArcGIS Engine Runtime
      ArcGISEngine91sp1.msp 33 MB
      ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit
      ArcGISEngineDevKit91sp1.msp 33 MB
      ArcReader
      ArcGISArcReader91sp1.msp 13 MB
      ArcGIS Server
      ArcGISServer91sp1.msp 32 MB
      ArcView 9.1 Evaluation Edition
      ArcViewDemo91sp1.msp 62 MB

    3. Double-click the msp files to start the install process.

      NOTE: If double clicking on the MSP file does not start the Service Pack installation, you can start the Service Pack installation manually by using the following command:

        msiexec.exe /p [location of service pack]\<Product>91sp1.msp REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus

    4. When Setup starts, follow the instructions on your screen.

    5. Repeat steps 2 - 4 for each product installed on your machine.

    6. (Server Installation Only) After the Service Pack has successfully been installed, you must run the ArcGIS Server Post Installation for the updates to take effect.

      • The Post Installation is available from Start > Programs > ArcGIS > ArcGIS Server > ArcGIS Server Post Installation.
      • Log out of and back into your Windows session to activate the new security settings.
      • This Service Pack must be installed on the Server Object Manager and all Server Object Container machines in your ArcGIS Server configuration. You must first install the Service Pack on each remote Server Object Container machine, then install the patch on the Server Object Manager machine. If a Server Object Container and a Server Object Manager exist on the same machine you only need to install the Service Pack and run the post install once on that machine.

    NOTE: If you have installed client setups from a shared Network Administrative ArcGIS Desktop setup, this Service Pack must be applied to all client installations.

    NOTE: You will not be able to install this Service Pack directly from any removable media, you must copy the Service Pack Install file (MSP) locally or to a location on your network prior to installing the Service Pack.

    System Administrators note:
    A technical paper is available to provide information on deploying ArcGIS and Service Packs. This white paper discusses the deployment of ArcGIS 9.1 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.
