Download and install ArcGIS Pro

Download and access


To perform the installation of the ArcGIS Pro application, several indications that are listed below must be taken into account.

  1. Email: in order to create an account associated with ArcGIS Pro, an email must be active, since all information is sent through this to activate the product.
  2. For users who already have an ArcGIS Online account, they can not use the same credentials to run ArcGIS Pro, as they are completely different accounts. However, if an account is opened in ArcGIS Pro, with the same email that was used for ArcGIS Online, these will be automatically associated and all products created from the desktop application on the web will be visible.
  3. Credentials: at the time of creating the key user name, they must keep them at hand, to be able to access the desktop application.

7. At the end of the assignment of the licenses, it is entered in the user menu, and the My Esri option is located. In this step you must be very careful, since the user and passwords that are placed at this point, do NOT correspond to the credentials of ArcGIS Pro.
