ArcGIS 10.x software is provided in the form of downloadable .iso files after login with a valid user account on the Esri Customer Care Portal. An ISO file, often called an ISO Image, is in fact an "image" of an entire DVD.
After the ISO image file has been downloaded, it can be used directly from the system's hard drive as a virtual disk by using either an ISO image file extractor program to extract the files, or by using an ISO mounter program (e.g., Virtual CloneDrive). In addition, a copy can be created on physical media by using a DVD authoring program and DVD burner to burn the ISO image on DVD.
This article includes steps on how to use the open source software 7-Zip to extract the .iso file and then run the software setup.
Check license information for 7-Zip here: 7-Zip License Information. For additional information, see the 7-ZIP FAQs
Follow the instructions below to download and install the 7-Zip software, extract your .iso file and then run the software setup from the extracted .iso file.
