I am currently working through the exercises in the Getting To Know ArcGIS Pro workbook. So far there has been no issue with the software. Working on Exercise 7A consists of joining a .csv table to a feature class. After the join, a field is added to the feature class table. Calculate Field is then used on the new field to populate it (page 270). After I right click and select Calculate Field, ArcGIS Pro exits the program and gives the error message "ArcGIS Pro has encountered a serious application error and is unable to continue'.
I thought this maybe an error in the data or a know software glitch, so I skipped ahead to Chapter 8, Exercise 8A. In the exercise some points are selected and then exported from a layer. A selection is run on the newly created layer (page 314) and the program exits again with the same error message.
Trying to learn this software so any help would be appreciated.
