I tried to add the Spatial Analyst ArcToolBox by right click and selecting 'Add Toolbox' but I cannot find in any folder the available toolboxes. They seem that they have disappered. I work with ArcGIS 9.3. Any help please?

The Spatial Analyst toolbox is a separately purchased add-on to ArcGIS. If you have a license for it, then you need to register it through the license manager in order for it to become available. –  Dan Patterson Dec 6 '11 at 19:53
    
I have the license and I have registered all extensions already. –  Demetris Dec 6 '11 at 20:22

In addition to getting the Spatial Analyst license activated, you also need to have selected that extension when you ran the ArcGIS Desktop install disc. That should have caused the toolbox to be there. So maybe it's just not properly installed.

As I noted above the extension is activated. –  Demetris Dec 7 '11 at 6:32
    
Thanks for the effort. I solved the problem by reinstalling ArcGIS! –  Demetris Dec 7 '11 at 11:54

Make sure it is enabled it in the extension manager. Customize (on the menu bar) > Extensions. Select the extensions you want to enable and then close it. That toolbox should already be visible in "toolboxes > system toolboxes" in the catalog window (maybe only ArcGIS 10). In 9.3 you may have to then turn the toolbar on. Customize > Toolbars > 'Locate the toolbar'. Then i believe you can dock it or just let it float. From there you should have access to all of the tools within that extensions toolbox.

If when trying to enable the extension (customize > extensions) you get a prompt that "There is no [extension] license currently available" then you may have installed it wrong.

The toolbar of Spatial Analyst is enable while I cannot see the toolbox in ArcToolboxes. The starnge thing is that I can see it when I select to create a new file but not if I open an existing one. –  Demetris Dec 7 '11 at 6:31
