For all existing ArcIMS customers out there, there has been a change to the ArcGIS 10/10.1 deprecation plan. Version 10.0 was the last release of ArcIMS and there are no plans for any future versions of ArcIMS.
Here is the updated text from the deprecation document:
“ArcGIS 10.0 was the last release of ArcIMS; we will no longer ship ArcIMS in releases after ArcGIS 10.0. With the adoption of ArcGIS Server and the move to 64-bit servers, ArcIMS is no longer the recommended product for producing web maps. While no longer shipped as part of ArcGIS, the current version of ArcIMS (version 10.0) will be continued to be supported as part of the ArcGIS 10.0 lifecycle.”
If you have any questions or concerns related to this document, please log in and post your comments to this blog.

We at Esri have been hard at work for many months to prepare for the ArcGIS 10 release. Today, the day is finally here when we can announce that ArcGIS 10 has been officially released.
For the first time, ArcGIS will be available as a download, which reduces the packaging waste and any delay due to production and shipping. It’s part of Esri’s effort to be a Greener company, and we hope that many of you will participate in this effort by downloading the software. For those that still require a physical disk, there is a way to request to receive backup media on DVD, but it will take a few more weeks (details for this are in the e-mail you will receive from Customer Service).
In the United States, maintenance contacts will receive information by e-mail on how they can download and authorize ArcGIS 10 for their organization. They may also contact Esri Customer Service for questions about their order at 1-888-377-4575 option 5; outside the United States, customers should contact their local Esri Distributor.
Esri Technical Support has been supporting the ArcGIS 10 Beta/Pre-Release for the last 8 months and is ready to take your calls or technical questions related to the 10 Release. If you run into an issue with the download, installation or use of the product, we are here to help. Please contact us at 1-888-377-4575 option 2 or submit a request via the online form. Outside the United States, customers should contact their local Esri Distributor.

Hi all! This is Jim B. with the Eastern Support Services Desktop unit and a few tips to keep you going strong. We each have found ourselves in situations where customers, clients and colleagues are using different versions of ArcGIS Desktop. If you upgrade immediately after a new release, you may find the need to share geodatabases or map documents with those who haven’t had a chance to upgrade yet. Fortunately, there is a quick and easy way to share data and documents between versions of ArcGIS Desktop.
To send a map document that is compatible with an earlier release of ArcGIS Desktop, you’ll need to save it for that particular version. For example, if you are using ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 and you need to send your map document to a colleague that is using ArcGIS Desktop 9.2, a copy of the map document needs to be saved specifically for ArcGIS Desktop 9.2. To do this:
- Open the Map document you need to send.
- Go to the File Menu and scroll down to ‘Save a Copy’.
- In the ‘Save a Copy’ dialog box, add a ‘File Name’ for the document and ‘Save a Copy’ as “ArcMap 9.2 Document”.
- Click ‘Save’.
This saves a copy of your ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 map document that is compatible with ArcGIS Desktop 9.2.
Sometimes it is necessary to share entire geodatabases with others, but they could all be using different versions of ArcGIS Desktop. With the exception of ArcGIS Desktop versions 9.0 and 9.1 as well as version 9.2 SP5/SP6 and 9.3 being compatible with each other, previous versions of ArcGIS Desktop cannot read or access geodatabases created from later releases of ArcGIS Desktop. It is possible to work around this by adding feature classes to a geodatabase that was created using an earlier release. To do this:
- Make sure that the Geodatabase does not contain any objects that are specific to the newer release.
- Create a new personal geodatabase using the previous release of ArcGIS Desktop.
- With the current release of ArcGIS Desktop, copy/paste the data into the geodatabase created by the previous release of ArcGIS Desktop.
- The geodatabase now contains the data from the current geodatabase and can be used by the previous release of ArcGIS Desktop.
More details can be found using the following links to the Knowledge Base:
So, the next time you have a colleague that needs documents and data for an earlier release of ArcGIS Desktop and they think it’s impossible, you’ll be able to impress them using your new knowledge of the sharing capabilities of ArcGIS Desktop.
