After installing ArcGIS Desktop, the Desktop Administrator does not contain any folders nor have any options.
A string value necessary to populate the Desktop Administrator was not added during the installation.
Note: Do not use this process to enable ArcView or ArcEditor Single-Use options within the desktop administrator. To obtain access to single-use options on an existing concurrent use installation, install the Single-Use product by running setup.exe over the existing Concurrent install.
Warning: The instructions below include making changes to essential parts of your operating system. It is recommended that you backup your operating system and files, including the registry, before proceeding. Consult with a qualified computer systems professional, if necessary. Esri cannot guarantee results from incorrect modifications while following these instructions; therefore, use caution and proceed at your own risk.
Note: This procedure can also be applied if a concurrent use product is installed but the install needs to be changed to a single use product.
