comment How do I tell if arcpy is installed?
This question sounds more like "how come arcpy is broken, or doesn't work?", not "is it installed?"

comment How to upload custom marker symbols to ArcGIS online?
Last time I did this (over a year ago) I had to have my symbols available on a web server. I put my images in the public folder of my dropbox.com account and referenced them from there. I dont know if there is support to upload and host the symbols in arcgis.com.

comment Continuous Service Area?
Give a read of this topic (resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//…) Do you have access to any of these tools. I'd think you could just supply the output of your MSA as input to an appropriate surface tool.

comment Counting points of specific type within polygon using ArcGIS ModelBuilder?
Is this a one time deal? Because its just a couple tools with the right parameters set. Or do you have a lot of turbines and they all have their buffer (wind farm area) already defined? (or are you doing a 5km buffer as you go in the analysis?)

comment Arcgis Web AppBuilder GP service can't get input interactively drawing on the map
The screen shot of the doc: do your input features need to have an attribute assigned to the input feature you create? Like does the model need a feature plus some attribute attached to it? If not, go back and change the feature set schema to something that doesn't have any attributes, republish and try again in the Builder.

Sorry, not sure about the AGS requirement to secure a FS for the workflow you describe

comment How to have more than one output on iterate tables (modelbuilder)?
You technically do have 5 outputs if your iterator finds 5 inputs. You need to make sure you're giving each output a unique name. If you want to do something with those outputs, give this a read resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#/…

comment Is it possible to consume ArcGIS Hosted Table into local or ArcSDE geodatabase?
Its the same difference. Replace the URL in the code sample with the one to a hosted feature service on AGOL.

comment Is it possible to consume ArcGIS Hosted Table into local or ArcSDE geodatabase?
You'll have to obtain a token to work with a secured service. Theres a code example to obtain a token here: github.com/arcpy/AutomaticUpdatesIntoFeatureService/blob/master/…

comment Trace tool within web app
I'm not familiar with the editing trace tools. In terms of doing a trace with GP and able to publish that as a service to be consumed in a webapp, check out this link to see if its what you want: desktop.arcgis.com/en/desktop/latest/analyze/sharing-workflows/…

comment Publishing map from ArcGIS Pro to ArcGIS for Server as Map Service?
To your 2nd point of other service types: its not possible. The Upload tool in Pro only works with 'My Hosted Services' ie. Portal. Publishing of services is on Pro's roadmap at 1.2 / ArcGIS Server 10.4 (NOTE, Dates and versions can change, thats just the high level plan as of today)

comment Script runs in ArcMap Python window but not in stand alone Python win or IDLE
AddJoin works on layers. Your "Group_Out" variable is pointing to a layer name and that layer doesn't exist when you run this outside of ArcMap. You'll need to create layers. See the 2nd code snippet for AddJoin here and notice how it does MakeFeatureLayer first: pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/tool-reference/data-management/…

comment How do I enumerate the messages in arcpy.GetMessages()?
Why not use arcpy.GetMessageCount and arcpy.GetMessage and get them 1 by 1 by index? resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#/GetMessage/…

comment ArcGIS JS API: parse GP Service messages
You dont even need to go that far. Just pass your CSV, TXT, PDF? output into the SetParameter. The GP Framework will handle sending the URL to the JavaScript client. This code uses the output param name 'Output_Text_File': gp.getResultData(jobInfo.jobId,"Output_Text_File", downloadFile); and gets the value from it. (which .valee.url that the framework supplied)

comment ArcGIS JS API: parse GP Service messages
Cool, if you understand parsing, I'll point this out. The GP Framework returns a URL to a file to download (http ://yourserver). The tool itself, through execution can only provide you the location on disk that the file gets saved to. You (tool author) would have to have knowledge of server virtual dirs and server paths to return that path in a message. On top of that, you (tool author) are now responsible for making sure if 2 people run the service at the same time, that files arent trying to overwrite each other and return wrong paths to the consumer.

comment Referencing layer in Table of Contents using ArcPy?
What exactly is it you want to do? Are you doing arcpy.Mapping commands or do you want to run GP tools against layers in the ToC?

comment How to add 3D buildings in tourism map with ArcGIS?
That feature looks like its a multipatch, which should show up nicely in 3D. Open up your data in ArcGlobe or ArcScene and move the camera position to get your desired view point.

comment SaveToLayerFile failed - “value is not a layer”
You can save a lyr file that references a map service - its just a reference. You can also call SAVE right off the lyr object. You dont need to use the tool. But I'd suspect its the path you're using (unescaped backslashes) in the output as Erica points out.
