comment Is it possible to rollback an ArcGIS Pro Update instead of uninstalling/reinstalling?
Thanks for submitting the reports, we do review those. Glad you're up and running. Best I can tell 1808 is final, 1472 would be a beta version. There has been 2 X.0.X updates since final, thus 1.0.2 is current. Dont have an answer about uninstalling those updates.

comment Is it possible to rollback an ArcGIS Pro Update instead of uninstalling/reinstalling?
Have you submitted any of this crash information to the Pro beta forums or tech support? I thought 1808 was the released (1.0) version of Pro, but I might be wrong. There has to my knowledge only been 1 updated pushed out (or 2?) and didn't hear anything about it causing crashes. My point is: any info you got regarding this would be good for us (esri) to get

comment Displaying estimated computational time when running tools in ArcGIS for Desktop?
I can't think of a tool that reports when it thinks it'll be done. But I dont know all 900+ tools. I can say the vast majority of core/analysis type tools do NOT report this information. Tools almost always report % complete. Maybe the caching tools report how much time is left?

comment Displaying estimated computational time when running tools in ArcGIS for Desktop?
You're statement as-is, isn't entirely correct. Since 10 (or was it 10.1?) background processing has been the default inside ArcMap/Catalog. At 10.2.1 a separate, downloadable installation of 64bit Background was made available and can be optionally installed. My point is: 32 or 64, it doesn't matter. Background processing is just that when it comes to interaction within the app. Either you're using it or not, regardless if you've downloaded 64bit.

Yeah, I think you're on pre-release. I see 4322 is final # for 10.3

You're absolutely certain you're on 10.3? Per the what's new, the tool was installed in 10.3: desktop.arcgis.com/en/desktop/latest/main/get-started/…

What'd mean homework done? This isn't wrapped up nicely in an actual PYT so it can be run as a tool. ;)

comment Comparing field names and field formats for featureclass using ArcPy?
Have a look at Feature Compare (desktop.arcgis.com/en/desktop/latest/tools/…) You can set it to compare schema only. You'd still need to write the code to make one item match the other

comment Make XY Event Layer in ArcGIS Pro
This works just fine for me. I can't find TM65_Irish_Grid. I can find TM75, not 65. Is this a custom projection? Will the tool run if you set as "GCS_WGS_1984"?

Output database doesn't matter. The tool creates an in_memory layer based on the "Layer_Name" param

comment ArcGIS Viewshed keeps crashing
While it shouldn't crash, are you actually getting anything worthwhile on a viewshed with a raster of say 100km, even 50km might be a stretch. A best practice is to use Buffer to set an extent and a mask to limit processing to a given radius. Download the GPK from here and see the work flow: arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=cede8ab5c0514f41a2cc69bedff67f48

comment Importing multiple KML files to ArcGIS
Might be quicker to copy/paste the 2nd copy sample from here: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//… which does exactly what you want (well it consolidates all KML into a single fGDB and maybe you dont want that part - so you could remove it)

dont slice, use the index of the list like @crmackey suggests: mylist[0] (for first item in the list)

comment How to export tables to Excel from ArcGIS 10.1 using the xlsxwriter python module?
As a note, in 10.2 the excel tools inside ArcMap actually use those python modules.

comment Publishing a geoprocessing service that imports modules besides arcpy?
I can't find a known issue on that (and cant reproduce it in a more recent setup). Not sure what else to suggestion :(

comment Publishing a geoprocessing service that imports modules besides arcpy?
you're absolutely positive its the import doing it? ie. you have NOTHING in a script beside import os and you've tried to do it. I am aware of a couple issue that were fixed at some point in time, but dont recall just a simple import of system installed modules causing an issue.

comment Calculating speed along point feature class (.gpx) in ArcMap?
@Andy please do share your results if you enhance it. ChrisW had some interesting points but would be neat to see actual differences in the two outputs (if any, how much)
