ArcGIS 10.0 Service Pack 5

In an ongoing effort to improve the quality of ArcGIS, I’m happy to announce the release of ArcGIS 10.0 Service Pack 5

This Service Pack includes many fixes since the 10.0 release. Here is list of issues fixed in SP5. If you have any feedback or questions regarding this service pack, please post in the ArcGIS Resource Center Forums or contact Esri Support.

If you have additional enhancements or ideas that you would like to see included in future service packs or releases, please post them on the ArcGIS Ideas site.

    If SP5 is released, then why doesn’t the “Patches and Service Packs for ArcGIS Desktop” webpage list it? I see it in the “Latest Patches and Service Packs” list, but it doesn’t appear on the webpage where one would expect it to be.

    5 service packs and still no fixes for the scale bar resizing bug? Come on ESRI, this is adding extraordinary amounts of time to our map making!

    are any service pack after sp1 in arcgis 10 not support Adf this is not good idea because the administrative tools in adf not supported in api (javascript,flex,silverligth) the administrative tools such as add feature class , add domain, add domain value and create geodatabase this examples and other not founded in esri api

    i hope that esri try to develope api and try to simulate all feature of adf in api :)

    As announced in the ArcGIS 10 deprecation notice (, ArcGIS 10.1 will be the last release including the Web ADFs. Esri Technical Support for the Web ADFs will continue until ArcGIS 10.1 is phased out as a retired product. Please refer to our ArcGIS for Server Product Life Cycle document at: ArcGIS 10 and ArcGIS 10.1 Service Packs will continue to update the Web ADFs.

    The focus of our strategy regarding web development on top of ArcGIS shifted a while back from the Web ADFs into the ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs. This decision was not made lightly, but to fully leverage modern user experiences, support highly scalable applications and provide a productive development environment this was a step that we had to take. We acknowledge that a change like this involves costs, time and energy, but feel like also brings new opportunities for all of us to deliver better information products and applications to the end-users of the ArcGIS system. We in Esri have seen many organizations make a successful move from the Web ADF into the ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs and strongly believe that all business requirements met with the Web ADF can be better served with the ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs. We have made a substantial investment enhancing our core ArcGIS for Server services and extensibility model (ArcGIS Server Object Extensions) to make this possible.

    Administrative tools such as Create Featureclass, Add Geodatabase Domain, Create Geodatabase or Add Domain Value are all available through our geoprocessing framework, which can be invoked from both the Web ADF and ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs. Additionally, operations like these are possible through the ArcObjects API, which can be leveraged through our ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs via Server Object Extensions. For a general discussion on strategies for moving your Web ADF logic into the new ArcGIS 10.1 for Server and its ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs, please refer to the following ArcGIS Blog post: Additionally, you can email us at: so we can have a more detailed conversation on particular issues regarding migrations from the Web ADF into our ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs.

    thanks for your reply

    but there are one problem that when creating model and try to publish model
    into server there are some variables in model not supported in server such
    as Input data , Moasic dataset and etc

    this is my problem in esri Apis

    but in adf there are libraries or classes already exist to create mosaic
    dataset into geodatabase

    thanks and best wishes :)

    I am currently using 10.1 and havent had any problems with the software for a year. I recently experienced a meltdown of most of my datafiles in each of my seperate mapping projects. For instance if I have selected certain towns and created a shp file with them and than try to change the color of that group of towns from another seperate shp file other towns in other unrelated shpfiles will randomly change color as well or not all of the towns in the single group shp file will change. In other situations I have had previous created shp files but when you preview the file there is no data listed. This all seem to happen over night and I question if GEO codes may have effected by any updates to the software?

    My refresh time increased significantly after installing SP5 Anything I can do to speed it up or go back?

    Is it just me or are service packs actually become much harder to find now via than they used to be using If it were not for this blog containing a link to I am not sure how I would otherwise have found 10.0 SP5.

  10. davidwilliamson says:

    I couldn’t find the link to the service pack either – I required it to do a network analysis on-line course. Finally found one embedded in instructions for an ARCGIS reviewer patch here…

    where can I find the service pack 5 for download?

    thanks in advance

    Sorry, bad link for the SP 4 instructions in earlier post. Should be:

    Here are the missing steps for quick reference:

    5. This step only applies to Oracle users who have the ArcSDE Application Server and the DBMS installed on separate machines. All other users proceed to the next step.

    If you have the ArcSDE Application Server and Oracle installed on separate machines, there are two shared libraries used by EXTPROC that must be copied to the Oracle server for ArcSDE 10 Service Pack 4. Copy new versions of the files listed below to the Oracle server. Be sure the files copied are designed to run on the operating system of the Oracle server. See the ArcSDE for Oracle installation guide for instructions.

    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_shapelib st_shapelib.dll (Windows), (Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium), (IBM)
    st_raster libst_raster_ora.dll (Windows), (Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium), (IBM)

    6. This step only applies to PostgreSQL users. All other users proceed to the next step.

    If you have the ArcSDE Application Server and PostgreSQL installed on separate machines or a single machine, the following libraries must be copied to the PostgreSQL lib location. On Linux the location can vary depending on how PostgreSQL was installed. To determine the appropriate location for your installation, please use pg_config, and place the libraries in the location indicated by PKGLIBDIR.

    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_geometry (Linux) st_geometry.dll (Windows)
    libst_raster_pg (Linux) libst_raster_pg.dll (Windows)
