Upon completion of the Service Pack you will need to redo the custom changes to the configuration and settings files if you want customized settings.

To install the Downloaded Service Pack:
ArcGIS Business Analyst Server 9.3 must be installed before you can install this Service Pack. It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before upgrading your installation. After the Service Pack is applied you will need to redo any customizations. Install this Service Pack using an administrative account. To install the BASDatasp1.msp use the same administrative user account that was used to perform ArcGIS Business Analyst Server Data - 2008 Setup. To find out what products are currently installed on your machine, download the ServicePackFinder931.exe utility in this zipped file and run it from your local machine. This utility provides a report detailing the ArcGIS products that are currently installed 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.

Important Note on ArcGIS Business Analyst Server Post Installs:
If the ArcGIS Business Analyst Server Post Install does not launch automatically after the Service Pack has been applied please be sure to launch the ArcGIS Business Analyst Server Post Install and ArcGIS Business Analyst Server Web Applications Post Install manually from the shortcuts in your Start menu. The Post Installs may prompt you to restart your computer, if so, you may choose to restart later after the post installation process is complete. You need to run the ArcGIS Business Analyst Server Web Applications Post Install after the Post Install. The Web Applications Post Install will prompt for the ArcGIS Server agsadmin user account and associated password (typically ArcGISWebServices). To avoid disrupting the installation you will need to use the same user account and password that you used when you initially installed ArcGIS Business Analyst Server 9.3 (or the last time you ran the Web Applications Post Install).
