Spyder IDE no longer works after upgrade to ArcGIS Pro 2.5 

Do this

Or if you want a shortcut, navigate to one of these files in the installation path:

Create a shortcut to it for your desktop

Right-click on the shortcut on your desktop and fix the parameters




where X is Your_ArcGIS_Pro_Install_folder and note the double quotes around the last portion

Start in:


Where Y is some folder where you store your notebooks eg:

HiThe cmd window launches and closes immediately after I attempt either of those approaches.

I'm not concerned with Spyder anymore. I can use other IDEs. My issue is I can no longer import the ArcGIS for Python API after updating ArcGIS Pro to 2.5, so all of my automated processes no longer work.

PS... if you made a "clone", there is a possibility that you have the wrong conda environment activated.  You can check that within ArcGIS Pro.  Make sure you switch into the environment ...C:\...X...\bin\Python\envs\arcgispro-py3 where X is your Pro installation folder.

You should be able to import the arcgis module from within the python window within Pro.  If you can't... proceed on.

Assuming failure of the above...

Then you have to "repair" ArcGIS Pro. 

From the start in Windows, search for Add/Remove programs, select Remove, then you will be given the option to repair.

If repair doesn't work, then you need to remove everything and start fresh.

That is my preference... "upgrading" might leave behind remnants of other stuff you installed along with Pro or options etc, that aren't any good anymore

My preference is to completely remove all traces of ArcGIS pro from my system... a basic uninstall should remove most, but I also check the c:\users\You\local... folder for any esri folder in the Apps folder and rename it with an "old" extension

Go to My Esri and download the exe into a folder... don't run it... download it,  and run the exe from that folder specifying that folder as the destination for unzipping/unpacking.

You will end up with a *.msi and *.cab file.  double-click on the msi and run it.

Also... make a folder for your installation so it isn't in the defaults.

I make and use an c:\arc_pro as the folder to install Pro into.  Better than that C:\Program.... location.

Did another fresh install of ArcGIS Pro.  Now I cant even import pandas.  Also I have duplicate Python libraries (see below):

I haven't installed any of these libraries. This is from the ArcGIS Pro install.

That wasn't a clean wipe and fresh install, you now have duplicate packages. 

As suggested earlier, you have to remove all vestiges of anything Arc* and to be on the safe side, anything Python.  I won't even suggest doing a registry edit at this stage.

I uninstalled ArcGIS Pro and deleted the ESRI folders in ..\AppData\Local and Roaming.  What else am I supposed to get rid of?

Also the only ArcGIS Pro install I have access to at the moment is 2.1 so I used that and updated to 2.5 through ArcGIS Pro>Project>About.

Updates will leave duplicates.

A clean install means downloading the *.exe from My Esri and not updating through ArcGIS Pro.

Just check that you only have 1 environment in arcgis pro from the Project backstage (in Python, Manage Environments.

You only have one python (3.6.9 which is correct )in your environment.

You can try to clone, but when you do, you have to switch into that environment before you install packages.

I don't clone, since I have full admin rights to my computer and I live on the edge and do all my installs there... that is because I have the *.msi and *.cab file from the *.exe from My Esri... so I can use .... the conda install --revision thing to roll back anything glitchy.

I only have one Python env. It is Python 3.6.9.

As I said, that is correct
