dear Readers,


thanks for taking the time to read through my question.  I am trying to start with a sample code with python script.



  1. Which python interpreter should be used 2.7.x (32 bit) that came with ArcGIS 10.x (6 or higher) or Py 2.7 (x64)?
    1. will import arcpy work on that? 
    2. I am unable to import ArcGIS module or use 'from ArcGIS.gis import GIS'
  2. if I make ArcGIS module work by changing it to 3.6.2 (conda) version then my arcPy goes away.


I have both ArcGIS pro and ArcGIS desktop advanced suite running on my workstation and virtual machine.  yes, I am beginner in Python but many years experience with ESRI objects and 'ArcObjects'.


any documentation or guidance would be great.


thanks for your help.
