Installing the Service Pack

  1. You must have administrator privileges and ensure that ArcMap is not currently open.
  2. The CD or network location PLTS was originally installed from must be available. For instance, if PLTS was installed from a CD, the CD must be available during the SP4 install. Copy the service pack to a local folder and have the PLTS software CD in the CD drive while installing SP4. If PLTS was installed from a network location the location must be available during SP4 install.
  3. Double-click the PLTSFoundation92_SP4.msp file and follow the installation instructions.

    Note: If the .msp extension is currently being used by another program and double clicking the .msp does not start the install process the service pack can be run from the command line.

Launching the service pack from command line:

  1. At a DOS command prompt, type 'msiexec.exe' to see if msiexec.exe can be found without specifying its full path.
  2. If Step 1 returns a message box from the Windows Install, proceed to Step 3. If it is not found, search your computer for 'msiexec.exe', usually found in the system32 folder, and note the full path when found.
  3. At a DOS command prompt use the following syntax to run the .msp file directly:

    C:>\path\msiexec.exe /p path\.msp

    C:>\msiexec.exe /p C:\temp\PLTSFoundation92_SP2.msp

An article on command line installations can be found on the ESRI support site at:
HowTo: Install a .msp file that is not recognized as a patch file
