|1.||In your web browser, navigate to https://utexas.app.box.com/s/4z1hshtzxdtd9w4ngf4yyoixhnem63ea which is the Box page used by UT Liberal Arts Information Technology Services (LAITS) to provide access to installation files for ArcGIS software to members of the campus community. Once there, find the folder titled "ArcGIS Pro" and click on it to be taken to a subdirectory that contains a list of folders which contain installation files for the most recent releases of the software. Once you are in the "ArcGIS Pro" folder, click on the subdirectory for the latest version of the software (unless you have a specific reason for preferring an older version, then select the older version you want) and you will be taken to a list of installation files for that version. Click on the link for the .exe file whose name starts with "ArcGISPro_" to download the installation executable that you will run on your machine to install the software. You do not need to download any of the other files on this page.|
|2.||Once you have downloaded the installation .exe file, browse to the location of this file on your computer and double click on it to run it. It will ask you where you would like to save the uncompressed installation files. Pick a location on your file system and give it a minute or so to complete the decompression process. You will receive a notification when this process is complete and, if you look closely, you should notice that there is a check box in this notification window. If you leave this checkbox checked, as it is by default, the software installation wizard will open automatically after you close the notification window. This wizard will ask you to accept the Esri ArcGIS licensing agreement and will walk you through a few more simple steps that you can go through fairly quickly as the default settings preconfigured for each step should be fine for most installations (it is best to adjust these setting only if you have a strong reason for doing so). Once you have completed the last step in the installation wizard, the installation process will start and should complete in about 5 minutes though it may take longer on laptops and older desktop computers with slower processors.|
Once the software is successfully installed, you will need to make sure that you have an ArcGIS Online account that is linked to the University of Texas ArcGIS Online organization and is licensed to use ArcGIS Pro before you can actually open and start using the program (you will notice that you are prompted to log in with a licensed ArcGIS Online account when you first open the software and you can proceed past this point without entering valid credentials). To create a UT linked ArcGIS Online account, you can follow the instructions provided at https://guides.lib.utexas.edu/gis/set-up-ut-arcgis-online-account and once your accounted is created, open ArcGIS Pro and log in using the Named User License option. See screenshots below for reference as you go through the ArcGIS Pro license configuration process of selecting Named User licensing, selecting the ut-austin ArcGIS Online organization, confirming the ut-austin ArcGIS Online organization selection, and logging in with your UT Austin credentials.
