    Installing the Service Pack

    1. You must have administrator privileges and ensure that ArcMap is not currently open.

    2. Copy the service pack .zip file to a local folder and unzip.

    3. Navigate to the PLTSDefense92.msi and double-click then follow the installation wizard instructions.

    Launching the service pack from command line (optional install process):
    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.

      At a DOS command prompt use the following syntax to run the .msi file directly:

      C:>\path\msiexec.exe /i path\.msp /qf

      C:>\msiexec.exe /i C:\temp\PLTSDefense92.msi /qf
