How To: Download ArcGIS software from the Esri Customer Care Portal

Summary

ArcGIS software downloaded from the Customer Care Portal is in .iso file format, and must be extracted with an ISO image extractor program such as ISOBuster or 7-Zip. The files can then be shared with other colleagues in an organization that need to install ArcGIS software.

An ISO file, often called an ISO Image, is in fact an 'image' of an entire DVD. The ISO image file can be used directly from a hard drive as a virtual disk by using either an ISO image file extractor program to extract the files (e.g., 7-Zip, IsoBuster), or by using an ISO mounter program (e.g., Virtual CloneDrive). In addition, it is possible to create a backup copy of the software on physical media by using a DVD authoring program and DVD burner to burn the ISO image on DVD.

Procedure

ArcGIS software can be downloaded from the Esri Customer Care Portal by logging in with an Esri Global ID.

  1. Click 'My Software' from the drop-down list and select 'Software Download'.
  2. Click the URL to the software download of choice. The DVD title is the URL.
  3. After the ISO image file has been downloaded, the setup files must be extracted using the ISO image file extractor program, or by using an ISO mounter program to browse to the .iso file.
