Installing ArcView GIS on Windows 10 64-bit displays the follow notification:
To get around this limitation we will use Cloudpaging to package and deliver ArcView GIS to a 64-bit OS as follows:
- Copy the extracted installer (link below) to a Windows 32-bit capture machine.
- Use Studio to capture the installation.
- In Operating system support, select the desired target OS's
- In the fonts tab exclude all legacy .fot fonts.
- Set C:\ESRI\AV_GIS30\ARCVIEW\BIN32\arcview.exe as the command line
Optionally capture prefetch and then cloudify the application.
Cloudpage the application to a Windows 64-bit OS:
