Install ArcGIS AllSource

The instructions in this topic describe how to download and install ArcGIS AllSource.

After reviewing the system requirements and downloading the installation files for ArcGIS AllSource, you can install the application on your computer.

You can make either a per-machine installation (the default) or a per-user installation of ArcGIS AllSource. A per-machine installation allows any user to run ArcGIS AllSource on the computer on which it is installed. A per-user installation allows only the user who installs it to run the application.

The default installation location for a per-machine installation is <System Drive>\Program Files\ArcGIS\AllSource. The default installation location for a per-user installation is <System Drive>\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Programs\ArcGIS\AllSource.


To make a per-user installation on supported Windows Server operating systems, the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer registry key must contain the REG_DWORD data type DisableMSI, with a value of 0. For more information, see DisableMSI in the Microsoft documentation.

Install ArcGIS AllSource from the command line

System administrators or IT support staff managing the ArcGIS AllSource installation may not want to use the installation UI or may be required to use a script to install the application. The following information will help you install ArcGIS AllSource from the command line.

The following is a typical silent installation of ArcGIS AllSource using the command line in a per-machine context:

msiexec.exe /i <setup staging location>\ArcGISAllSource.msi ALLUSERS=1 INSTALLDIR="C:\MyArcGISAllSource\" ACCEPTEULA=YES /qb

The /qb switch provides the basic UI of the progress status and error handling, /qr provides a reduced UI, and /qn provides no UI. For details, refer to Command-Line Options in the Microsoft documentation.


When defining PORTAL_LIST, surround the specified value or values with double quotation marks, for example, PORTAL_LIST=";".

The following are the command line parameters that can be used when running ArcGISAllSource.msi. Use these with the MSI command line options as needed. The parameter names are case sensitive and should be used as defined below. The parameter values, however, are not case sensitive except where noted.

ArcGIS AllSource installation command line parameters

The following parameters can be provided to install using the command line.


This is the ArcGIS AllSource installation location. If not specified, the installation location is %System Drive%\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro for a per-machine installation, and %System Drive%\%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Programs\ArcGIS\Pro for a per-user instance (see the ALLUSERS parameter).


This defines the installation context of the ArcGIS AllSource setup, in which ALLUSERS=1 is a per-machine installation and ALLUSERS=2 is a per-user instance. If this parameter is not specified, the default is per user.

If a user without administrative privileges attempts to set ALLUSERS=1, the installation fails.


Specify whether to enable participation in the Esri User Experience Improvement program. The default value is 1, which enables participation. To opt out of participation, specify ENABLEEUEI=0.


This parameter is required to accept the End User License Agreement (EULA) during a silent installation. Specify ACCEPTEULA=YES to agree to the EULA and install the software. The software will not install if you specify NO or omit this parameter.


This parameter is used to install the optional features included in the ArcGIS AllSource setup. To enable the Semantic Search feature for geoprocessing tools, use ADDLOCAL=SemanticSearch; to enable the Tool Suggestions feature for geoprocessing tools, use ADDLOCAL=ToolSuggestions; and to enable both AI Model features, use ADDLOCAL=ALL.


If specified, the BlockAddins registry value allows system administrators to configure the types of add-ins that ArcGIS AllSource will load. It is created under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ESRI\ArcGISAllSource\Settings.

This parameter is only read during a per-machine installation; it is ignored if specified for a per-user setup.

Setting BLOCKADDINS=0 loads all add-ins, regardless of whether they have digital signatures. Setting it to 1 only loads add-ins that are digitally signed by a trusted certificate authority; 2 only loads add-ins that have been published by Esri; 3 only loads add-ins from the administrator folders and those published by Esri; 4 does not load or run add-ins; and 5 only loads add-ins from the administrator folders. The default is 0.
