You have purchased a new Personal Use License and want to get started working with your data in ArcGIS Pro. This blog will show you how to download the ArcGIS Pro desktop application and how to access it with your Personal Use License.
Before you can jump into ArcGIS Pro for Personal Use, you will have to have set up your My Esri Account activated your ArcGIS Online subscription and assigned yourself the available extensions. If you have missed these important steps, first take a look at the Creating an ArcGIS public account and setting up your My Esri and Activating your ArcGIS Online subscription with a Personal Use License then return here to finish your ArcGIS Pro set-up.
Step 1. You can find the ArcGIS Pro desktop application download in your ArcGIS Online account. Sign in to ArcGIS Online from www.arcgis.com or the homepage you set up for your organisation ( eg. https://Personal-User.maps.arcgis.com)
Step 2. In the top right-hand side of the screen, click your name to open your profile and select My settings.
Step 3. On the My Settings page navigate to Licenses > ArcGIS Pro, click on the option to Download ArcGIS Pro.
You can find more information on the system requirements for ArcGIS Pro here, to check that it can operate on your machine.
Step 4. When the ArcGIS Pro download is complete, you are ready to install the software.
See the steps for the installation process here.
Step 5. Once installed, open ArcGIS Pro and you will be prompted to sign in. Enter the username and password that you set up for your ArcGIS Online Organisation.
You can also tick the box at the bottom left-hand side of the sign-in pop-up to sign you in automatically when you open the application in the future to prevent being prompted to enter your details each time.
ArcGIS Pro will now open, and you are ready to get started working with your data. On the top right-hand side of the screen, you will be able to see which account you are logged in with and sign out if you want to switch accounts or users.
