PLTS for ArcGIS 9.3.1 Foundation Service Pack 2

Published: August 29, 2010


This Service Pack contains user requested performance improvements and maintenance fixes. Additionally, it includes many fixes that allow improved localization. Please download and install this required cumulative Service Pack at your earliest convenience.


Esri is pleased to announce PLTS for ArcGIS 9.3.1 Foundation Service Pack 2. We recommend that customers download and install this Service Pack at your earliest convenience. This service pack is cumulative and includes all previous 9.3.1 QFE releases.

Note: In some instances the original PLTS for ArcGIS 9.3.1 Foundation MSI (install media) is requested when the service pack released on 8/29 is installed. On 9/10 the service pack was replaced with a version that changes this behavior but otherwise contains the same files. If you have already applied the service pack, you do not need to re-apply it.
