ArcGIS Business Analyst 9.3 Service Pack 2 - for 2008 Data

Published: April 15, 2009


ESRI is pleased to announce the release of ArcGIS Business Analyst 9.3 Service Pack 2. This update contains performance improvements and maintenance fixes for those who have installed Business Analyst 9.3 with 2008 Data, also known as Build 9.3.050. All fixes included in Business Analyst 9.3 Service Pack 1, also known as Build are cumulative in this service pack.


You can install the service pack in one of two ways: either by automatic update, or by downloading the service pack install file locally.

Important Notes:

Note: ArcGIS 9.3 Service Pack 1 is required to install Business Analyst 9.3 Service Pack 2. Install ArcGIS 9.3 Service Pack 1 from the following location: ArcGIS 9.3 Service Pack 1

Note: Hotfix patches made available prior to the release of Business Analyst 9.3 Service Pack 1 are included in Business Analyst 9.3 Service Pack 2. It is no longer relevant to install these files individually.

Note: If you are applying the Business Analyst service pack using the automatic update method and have ArcGIS Server installed on your machine you must first stop the ArcGIS Server Object Manager (SOM) service. After applying the service pack you can restart the service. You can find this at Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services. Installing the msp file stops and restarts the SOM without user interaction.

To Install the Business Analyst Service Pack using the Automatic Update feature

  1. You must have access to the Internet and have ArcMap and ArcCatalog closed.
  2. Proceed to Start > All Programs > ArcGIS > Business Analyst > Check for Business Analyst Updates, and follow the on screen instructions.

You can click the Help button on the Check for Business Analyst Updates dialog for detailed information about Business Analyst service packs.

To Manually Install the Downloaded Service Pack
This is designed for users who are unable to access the update via the automatic update utility in Business Analyst due to local security protocols.

  1. You must have ArcMap and ArcCatalog closed.
  2. Make sure you have write access to your ArcGIS installation location, and that no one is accessing it.
  3. Download BA93SP2.msp to a location other than the installation folder.
  4. Double-click the msp file to start the install process and follow the on screen instructions.
  5. You can verify the patch version from the Preferences of Business Analyst. From the Business Analyst drop-down menu select Preferences and then select the General tab, and at the bottom of this tab you will see the current version (Build #
