Description

Introduction


It is recommended that all ArcGIS Military Overlay Editor (MOLE) 9.3.1 customers download and install this Service Pack, at their earliest convenience, to ensure the highest quality experience when working with MOLE 9.3.1.


NOTES:

  • ArcGIS Military Analyst SP2 and ArcGIS MOLE SP2 no longer support the Solaris platform due to reduced customer demand for that platform.


  • ArcGIS Military Overlay Editor 9.3.1 or 9.3.1 Service Pack 1 must be installed before you can install Service Pack 2. Service Pack 2 is cumulative and contains the fixes from all previous 9.3.1 patches. If you have a previous patch installed, you may apply Service Pack 2 over it to update the required files.
