These instructions describe how to create a startup log for ArcMap version 10.3
Note: Prior to running the following commands. The user running the commands must have full permission to the folder where ArcMap.exe is installed. The default location for ArcMap 10.3 is used in this example. For other versions of ArcMap, the path may vary, for example, at version 10.2, this path is: <install location>\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\bin
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.3\bin
Note: If ArcGIS Desktop 10.3 was not installed to the default location, change directory to this location. Type the following path and press Enter:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.3\bin
Note: If the log does not write or ArcMap does not launch, it is most likely because the user does not have full permission to this folder. Please see an administrator for assistance with this.
