Installing the Service Pack


Installation Notes


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

    To find out what products are currently installed on your machine, download the ServicePackFinder92.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 for the Microsoft .NET Framework, VB6 and Visual C++
      ArcGIS ArcReader
      ArcGIS Engine Runtime
      ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit for C++, the Java Platform, the Microsoft .NET Framework, VB6 and Visual C++
      ArcGIS Server for the Microsoft .NET Framework and the Java Platform
      ArcGIS Server Web ADF Runtime for the Microsoft .NET Framework
      ArcIMS Web ADF for the Microsoft .NET Framework and the Java Platform
      ArcIMS
      ArcSDE


    NOTE (ArcIMS and ArcSDE users): If you use ArcIMS 9.2 or ArcSDE 9.2, you must also install ArcIMS 9.2 Service Pack 1 or ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 1 . For example, if you use ArcIMS 9.2 and ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop, install both ArcIMS 9.2 Service Pack 1 and ArcGIS 9.2 Desktop Service Pack 1. Since ArcIMS 9.2, ArcSDE 9.2 and the ArcGIS 9.2 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

    NOTE (ArcGIS Desktop 9.2 Evaluation Edition users): This Service Pack is supported with the ArcGIS Desktop 9.2 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 9.2 SP1 clients are fully compatible with the Sun and Linux 9.2 servers for these products. Also, the 9.2 Sun and Linux clients are compatible with the 9.2 SP 1 Windows servers.

    NOTE (ArcGIS Server): The ArcGIS Server Post Install will automatically launch after the service pack has been applied. The Post Install will prompt for the ArcGIS Server Object Manager (SOM), ArcGIS Server Object Container (SOC) and the ArcGIS Server Web Services user accounts and their associated passwords. To avoid disrupting the operation of your server installation you will need to use the exact same accounts and passwords that you used when you initially installed ArcGIS Server (or the last time you ran the Post Install). If you don't remember which ones you used you can have the Post Install create new ones for you, but you will need to update the permissions on your data and output directories to grant access to the new ArcGIS Server Object Container (SOC) account. For help on getting started after installing ArcGIS Server, refer to the Administering the server--> Getting started after install topic in ArcGIS Server Help. You can access the ArcGIS Server Help online at http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgisserver/9.2.

    NOTE: If you are using ArcSDE data sources, you must apply the ArcSDE 9.2 SP 1 client install for your particular platform. Since the ArcGIS 9.2 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

    Notes for ArcGIS Server Web ADF Runtime for the Microsoft .Net Framework users:

    NOTE 1: After you install the Web ADF Runtime for the Microsoft .NET Framework Service Pack 1, you should download the ArcGIS Server and ArcIMS Web Application Migration Utility to update your Web Mapping Applications created with 9.2 Final. This update will resolve issues when users view the application using Internet Explorer 7.

    NOTE 2: The ArcGIS Server for the Microsoft .Net Framework setup has a Service Pack 1 setup named ArcGISServerDotNet92sp1.msp.

    The 9.2 release also includes a setup for the Web Application Developer Framework (ADF) Runtime. This Runtime installation is installed on production machines where you plan to deploy Web Mapping Applications built with the Manager or the Web ADF. The ArcGIS Server for the Microsoft .Net Framework Web ADF Runtime setup has a Service Pack 1 setup named ArcGISServerWebADFRuntime92sp1.msp.

      Note: A machine that has the ArcGISServerDotNet92sp1.msp installed would not require an installation of the ArcGISServerWebADFRuntime92sp1.msp.

Installation Steps


    ArcGIS 9.2 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:

      ArcGISDesktop92sp1.msp 44 MB
      ArcGIS Desktop Developer Kit for the Microsoft .Net Framework
      DesktopSDKDNet92sp1.msp 40 MB

      ArcGISServerJava92sp1.msp 227 MB

    3. (Server for .Net Installation Only) From your Services control panel, stop the ArcGIS Server Object Manager.

    4. (Server for Java Installation Only) From your Services control panel, stop the ArcGIS Server Manager Service and the ArcGIS Server Object Manager.

    5. 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>92sp1.msp REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus

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

    7. Repeat steps 2 - 6 for each product installed on your 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 9.2 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.
