How would I tell an installation of ArcView from ArcEditor, if looking at only the installed files? Specifically, how do I distinguish

  • ArcView 9.3 from ArcEditor 9.3
  • ArcView 10.0 from ArcEditor 10.0

For example, the file ArcSOC.exe indicates an installation of ArcGIS Server.

ArcView is a paid for and licensed product. If you looking to display and edit shapefiles look at qgis.org for a FREE solution. –  Mapperz Jan 27 '12 at 22:33
    
@FadliBullhan Very off topic comments... But if you really need ArcMap have a look at ESRI's grant program, esri.com/grants/esri/nonprofit.html –  tharen Jan 28 '12 at 0:37

The installs are the same.
If you go to desktop administrator and select the software product folder
you will see the options to switch between licensed products.

If you are using an ESRI network license you can change this setting readily.

If you are on a standalone you will only have the choice to use it or switch to a floating license.

In which case you would need to supply a license server.

My understanding is that the install files are the same between licensing levels. When installing you do not choose which licensing level to install. Available features are then determined by activation through the license manager.
