Does ESRI software work properly if an ESRI Service Pack is not installed?
All released software functions properly prior to installing a Service Pack.
Service Packs are created after the software is released and provide bug fixes and enhancements for the released software.
It is recommended to install the Service Pack when it is released to get the latest bug fixes.
When using more than one ESRI application, it is important to keep all the ESRI software productions at the same Service Pack level.
