Tutorial not accessible to non-admin users

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The Schematics tutorial databases are not accessible to a user without Administrative privileges.


Tutorials are installed by default under C:\ArcGIS. A non-admin user may not have full read/write access to this directory.

Solution or Workaround

Log in as an admin user, have the admin give read/write access to the tutorial directories or install tutorials in a user-accessible location.
