Installing ArcGIS For Desktop

ArcGIS 10.3 logo

ArcGIS Desktop is a suite of applications and tools for mapping, analyzing, and managing geographic data created by Redlands’s own Esri (located just a couple miles from campus!). As a student or employee of the University of Redlands, you are entitled to a copy of Esri’s ArcGIS Desktop along with several extensions including Spatial Analyst, 3D Analyst, and Network Analyst. The following instructions will guide you through installing ArcGIS Desktop on a computer connected and authenticated on the University’s network. After ArcGIS is installed, you may decide to “borrow” a license for up to one year for off-campus.

Before installing, please review the system requirements. While ArcGIS Desktop requires a Windows operating system, it can be installed on a Mac in a virtual machine environment by using software such as Boot Camp.

1) Download the desired version* from ftp://css-web.redlands.edu/software/ArcGISDesktop. Use your university email and password to login when asked.
*ArcGIS 10.5.1 is the currently supported version in the university labs. Be sure to use this version if you expect to use files on both your personal computer and in the labs.

2) Open the file when the download completes and choose a place to extract the install files. This step does not actually install ArcGIS, this is just extracting the files to install. These files can be deleted once ArcGIS is installed so make note of the destination folder.

3) Click Close when the extract process finishes. Confirm that the box is checked to Launch the setup program.

4) Follow the steps in the setup program to install ArcGIS. We highly recommend that you use the Complete install type and accept all of the default destination folder locations. Please note that the install process may take up to 45 minutes or longer for some users.ArcGIS 10.3 Install Splash Screen

5) Users that are updating from previous versions may skip this step. If this is the first time you are installing ArcGIS on this computer, the ArcGIS Administrator Wizard dialog is displayed.
a) Select Advanced (ArcInfo) Concurrent Use from the list of software products.
b) Click the Change…  button under License Manager (for Concurrent Use software products) and enter licensesvr2.redlands.edu in the box.

6) You may now use ArcGIS for Desktop! Please keep in mind that ArcGIS generally requires a connection to the University of Redlands network to license successfully. If you are installing on a laptop or plan to use this computer off the campus network, please see our page on how to borrow an ArcGIS Desktop license.

 

7) You can now access your ArcGIS Online account through ArcMap. To do this you will need to have activated your ArcGIS Online account. 

In ArcMap, go to File>Sign In… and you will be presented with the following login window. Click “Sign in using your enterprise” (you may need to droll down in the window to find the link)

Sign in to you ArcGIS Online account in ArcMap

 

You will then be asked to enter the sub-domain. Enter univredlands (or redlandsbusiness for the School of Business portal) and hit Continue.

Enter the Subdomain

On the next screen you will click on Using your UoR Account which will automatically log you in using the UoR credentials used to sign into your computer workstation.

If you have any questions or problems regarding the install, please contact the Center for Spatial Studies

Borrowing Licenses for ArcGIS Desktop

borrowArcGISThe ArcGIS Desktop suite (ArcMap, ArcCatalog, ArcGlobe, etc) has very strict licensing requirements and generally requires a connection to a “license server” on our network while using it. This works well when using a university computer connected to the network, but it’s often inconvenient when using ArcGIS on a laptop or other computer off campus. For this reason, we allow you to “borrow” a license from our server that can be used without a network connection for up to a year.

To Borrow a License of ArcGIS Desktop

Before attempting to borrow a license, please confirm that you have installed ArcGIS Desktop and configured it to use the University of  Redlands license server. Also, confirm that you are connected to the university’s network through an hardwired ethernet connection (not wifi) before attempting to borrow a license.

  1. Open ArcGIS Administrator from your Start Menu/Start Screen. (If you’re having trouble finding it, try hitting the Windows Key and start typing ArcGIS Administrator…it should be displayed in the list.)
  2. Using ArcGIS Administrator, select Desktop in the table of contents in the left panel.
  3. Make sure the license manager has been defined as: licensesvr2.redlands.edu.

  4. Select the Borrow/Return folder.
  5. Check the box next to Desktop Advanced and any of the additional extensions you want to use click Apply. The most common extensions are displayed in the screenshot below.

    Borrow Licenses

  6. After the licenses have been borrowed, click OK to close the ArcGIS Administrator. You can now use your ArcGIS software while off the network.

You will be notified when your borrowed license is expiring and may re-borrow licenses using this same process to ensure that you don’t lose functionality in ArcGIS Desktop.
