Files Installed in this Service Pack
- Under the ArcGIS Desktop installation bin folder:
Installing the Service Pack
Since this Service Pack replaces several ArcGIS Desktop 8.3 files, ArcGIS Desktop 8.3 must be installed before you can install this Service Pack.
- Make sure you have write access to your ArcGIS Desktop, and that no one is using ArcGIS Desktop.
- Download ArcGIS-83-SA-Sp1.exe (8 MB) to a location other than your ArcGIS Desktop installation location.
- Double-click the setup file to start the install process.
- When Setup starts, follow the instructions on your screen.
NOTE: If you have installed client setups from a shared Network Administrative ArcGIS Desktop setup, this Service Pack must be applied to all client installations.
NOTE - For Survey Analyst Developers: Three of the original five object libraries have been consolidated into a single object library. To clearly differentiate the new set of object libraries from the previous set, the names of the two unchanged object libraries have also been changed. If you have developed applications that reference these original object libraries, they will need to be re-referenced and the relevant binaries will need to be recompiled. With this service pack, the Survey Analyst extension uses three object libraries instead of five.
The names of the original references are:
ESRI Survey Analyst Object Library (esriSurveyCoreExt.olb)
ESRI Survey Analyst DataExchange Object Library (esriSurveyDataExchange.olb)
ESRI Survey Analyst TPSPackage Object Library (esriSurveyTPSPackage.olb)
ESRI Survey Analyst PointPackage Object Library (esriSurveyPointPackage.olb)
ESRI Survey Analyst COGOPackage Object Library (esriSurveyCOGOPackage.olb).
The names of the new references are:
ESRI Survey Analyst Object Library (esriSurveyExt.olb)
ESRI Survey Analyst DataExchange Object Library (esriSurveyDataEx.olb)
ESRI Survey Analyst Packages Object Library (esriSurveyPkgs.olb)
NOTE - For users of third party Survey Analyst based applications: If you experience difficulties with a custom application that was developed prior to this service pack and that uses Survey Analyst, then you should request a new version of this custom application that is compatible with this Service Pack.

How to identify which Service Pack is installed
