Windows Installer

Windows Installer packages are the classic way to install Windows software. The SQL for ArcGIS Pro Windows Installer package will automatically install any required Microsoft prerequisites if those are not already installed on your system. It will automatically register the add-in with your ArcGIS Pro installation as well.

Installation

  • Download the Windows Installer package for SQL for ArcGIS Pro from the SQL for ArcGIS Pro Downloads page.
  • A Windows Installer package is an .exe file. Double-click the .exe file to launch the installation.
  • Windows may complain the package is an unrecognized app, or that the publisher is unknown. Ignore those warnings and run the installation anyway.
  • Installation dialogs are the usual, obvious dialogs. Press the Install button and otherwise click through the dialogs.
  • In addition to installing SQL for ArcGIS Pro, if necessary the package will install or update any Microsoft pre-requisites, such as the C++ Redistributable package. When finished, the dialog will announce the installation is successfully completed. Press the Close button to close the dialog.
  • SQL for ArcGIS Pro is now installed. When you launch ArcGIS Pro, an Add-In tab will appear in the ribbon.

After installation, save the installation .exe file. You may need it later to uninstall or to repair an installation.

To use SQL for ArcGIS Pro, launch ArcGIS Pro, open a project, then click the Add-In tab and press the Open SQL button in the sql4arc group.

Portable Installation

A portable installation is a .zip file that unzips into a fully-functional package that requires no installation. Many users prefer portable installations to using Windows Installer, especially when packages are updated frequently. Just download and go.

Prerequisites

SQL for ArcGIS Pro requires a recent Windows .NET framework and Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable libraries. Install these if not already present in your Windows system:

Installing prerequisites, if necessary, needs to be done only once. Thereafter, you can use however many different portable installations for SQL for ArcGIS Pro that you want.

Installation

  • Download the portable installation for SQL for ArcGIS Pro from the SQL for ArcGIS Pro Downloads page.
  • A portable installation is a .zip file. Unzip the file to create a hierarchy of files and folders, including an addin folder that contains an Esri AddInX file.
  • Launch ArcGIS Pro with a project. In the Project tab, choose Add-In Manager.
  • In the Add-In Manager, choose Options, and choose Load all Add-Ins without restrictions.
  • Press the Add Folder button.
  • In the Select Folder dialog, navigate to the location of the addin folder and click it, so it appears in the Name box. Press OK.

Error message when launching SQL for ArcGIS Pro? That usually means your Windows system is missing a Microsoft prerequisite mentioned above, either the C++ Redistributable package or the Microsoft .NET Framework or both. Exit ArcGIS Pro, and then take a moment to install those.

For details, see the illustrated, step by step guide to portable installations in the Install SQL for ArcGIS Pro User Manual topic.

Uninstallation

Portable installations do not require any uninstallation. If you have downloaded a newer version, or if you no longer want the program on the system, first use the ArcGIS Pro Add-In Manager to remove the add-in folder in the Options tab, and then use Windows Explorer to delete the files and folders that were unzipped from the downloaded .zip file. See the Install SQL for ArcGIS Pro User Manual topic for step by step examples.
