I am experiencing numerous issues with multiple programs, and I would like to reinstall Windows. As regarding ArcGIS and licensing, are there certain steps that I need to perform before and after reinstalling Windows to reinstall ArcGIS?
From this link Authorizing ArcGIS single-use products and features—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop :
If you want to remove single-use licenses from your machine, click Support Operations and click Deauthorize. Follow the instructions to remove the core product and any selected extensions from your machine."
Once you install your windows again, just authorize your products like you did the first time.
Are you reinstalling ArcGIS Desktop only, or are there additional products? If Desktop only, single use licensing? Can you provide a little more detail?
Yes Alexander, I only reinstall ArcGIS for desktop single use and Spatial analyst for desktop single use.
After deauthorization of licence from ArcGIS Admin and take a save copy of license file then remove you windows OS. And when you want you can use this license file after your installation..
