As a kid, I loved opening the mailbox to find the latest National Geographic. I'd lay around for hours with that month's map spread out in front of me. I'd study the topography, the borders, the water. Maps always amazed me, but I never thought of mapping as a career choice. I ended up in engineering school and left with a computer science degree. Along the way, I rediscovered my draw towards geography when I ended up in an internship that dealt with GIS. Almost a decade of work experience later, here I am.

Yes--nothing seemed to really help. And I have already uninstalled it/removed paths to go back to the original setup.

It reaches the arcpy folder, but seems to have a problem with arcpy.geoprocessing.

I recreated this file, just in case. No luck. When I did the change in my comments above to ArcGISx6410.2, there is a DTBGGP64.pth that points to 64-bit locations, but no desktop10.2.pth. I did attempt the 10.2 path, just to try it (changing the other to a .txt in the meantime, so there was no conflict), but there was no change. Very confused by all of this. Thanks.

Is there somewhere within ArcMap that might store a path or hard coded environment variable to python? I've recreated my normal.mxt. I am very confused on how the command line works if I go to Start->ArcGIS->Python2.7 to open, but it's not found when opening directly from ArcGIS.

2.7.9 was installed during the reinstall. After much frustration last night and this morning, I have found that there is some sort of issue with Python on 64-bit machines. I'm in the process of working this angle. Keeping my fingers crossed that after a reboot everything will fall into place. To clarify, I have ditched 2.7.9 and reverted back. PATH variables are set. CMD line does pick up python. Picked up this during an image search of "Python27 ArcGIS": (pcigeomatics.github.io/PCI-Geomatics-Python-Cookbook/…)

My assumption earlier today was yes. But, as of now, I see that even though the window opens, it's not actually recognizing commands. adding another screenshot to my original post...

Hi Eric. Good question...what mapping software are you using? Different GIS viewers handle code differently.

comment Finding the Python script used by a custom toolbar button in ArcMap
Any chance that anyone would know what to do if 'View Source' is greyed out? I'm in a very similar situation to Erica. :/
