Installing ArcGIS: "Good Luck With That"
"Good luck with that." It's a phrase I heard from six different ESRI employees—who are friends—when I told them that I was installing ArcGIS yesterday. Strange; What does this occurrence mean? I don't know. But I had one heck of a time trying to figure out how to get the software off of a DVD that didn't autorun properly. Then I got ArcGIS installed, which I'm having all sorts of woes with it on my home computer. ArcMap will open, but no toolbars will show. I try to open an MXD, I get a premature termination from a C++ runtime error. It may be the software, it may not be the software. It runs fine on other computers I have. It may just be that my home machine is junk. Still, if anyone has any thoughts or tips, let me know how to get ArcGIS running properly on the machine I want it to run on.
