CreateMobileMap_mobile module is missing in the Python window

Last Published: April 25, 2020


CreateMobileMap_mobile module is missing in the Python window.

This occurs in two possible scenarios:

• ArcGIS Mobile 10.1 is installed before ArcGIS Desktop 10.1.
• ArcGIS Mobile 10.1 and ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 are installed and then ArcGIS Desktop is upgraded to version 10.1.


Python cannot locate the mobile path file which sets the ArcGIS Mobile geoprocessing tool path for Python.

This chart shows the relationships between software versions and file information.
