I am trying to install ArcGIS Student Edition 10.3.1 on my laptop. I run Windows 10. I have activated my authorization number online. Now I have followed the instructions on the pamphlet in which I got the DVD. The instruction is to run Esri.exe on the DVD to launch the setup menu.
However on the DVD there is a lot of files but now file named Esri.exe. The only one that looks as if it should work is the file named: ArcGIS_Desktop_1031_145699. I lunched this file and it took me to a menu that want me to choose a folder to unpack my files. It automatically chose a folder on my C drive and started unpacking the files. However after a few seconds that the green bar has progressed it gives me an error saying the following: An unexpected error occurred while unpacking files(s). Error code: -2147467259.
Can anyone please help.
that error code is too generic and applies to a lot of stuff (search GeoNet using error code: -2147467259 if you want to see examples)
Options... don't do the same thing again, save to a different folder. Doesn't the dvd autoload? Have you tried downloading the student version from your institution? online?
