I hope everybody would understand my point of being able to install original copy of ArcGIS. Two damn good reasons are 1) I do not have that kind of money and credit card as well. 2) I do want to learn. So, here I am writing for those who faced trouble with ArcGIS installation with a crack. Please do note, I did not install it in my computer rather in the place where I am learning. Also I do not have the copy of the software nor the crack. I just have taken snaps to help those who are like me trying to learn.
Step 1: Do see what is the name of your computer. Open System by clicking the Start button , right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties. Under Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings, you can find your computer name, and its full computer name if your computer is on a domain.
step 3: Click on the setup file ‘Esri’ to start installing the software. A window will come up. click on the setup link next to ‘ArcGIS for Desktop’. Accept everything and press next, and also install. It will take about 5 minutes to copy the file and to install. Click finish.
Step 5: You must have License Manager (Pre-Release Version) this folder or the rar file. Install the Setup file. Finish installing.
Step 6: Now, you must have a ArcGIS Keygen executable file. double click and the following window will appear. See if everything is as it’s shown in the picture. To get all the written things that is inside, click on the all button after setting the version 10.1, write it manually if you do not have the option (yes, you can do that). Copy the whole thing that is inside, to a text file and name it service if you do not have a ‘service’ text file. Do not forget to change the computer name.
Step 7: Now now. Time to copy the service.txt file. Copy it and take it to C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\License10.1\bin. It should be there. Otherwise you have done something differently. Paste it and the computer will ask for administrative permission. press ok and you now have your service.txt file in the bin folder. (Some computers may not allow the copy and move. What you need to do is to change the name of the service.txt file in bin folder and then copy your service.txt file. We were 25 students in the class trying to install so I guess we got to know more or less what can be the problem).
Step 8: Ok. Now go to Start button , Find ArcGIS folder and then Licence Manager folder. Click on licence server administrator. This window will appear.
Step 9: Now go to Start button , Find ArcGIS folder and Click on ArcGIS administrator. This window will appear. Write and do whatever is shown in the picture.
Now you are done with the ArcGIS installation. Use the software well.
The installation pattern is almost same as ABAQUS. I love learning software and I wish I had the kind of money to buy the original version. The software itself is something that helps thousands doing disaster relief work and other humanitarian work. So, a big thank goes to the people who made the software. Whoever made the crack, I thank him too. Cause students and knowledge seekers like me, are getting the chance to explore the software for them.
Happy mapping everybody.
