I'm trying to install ArcGIS 10.1 Desktop Advanced Student Edition. I'm currently running Windows 8.1 on my Macbook Pro (2014, 16GB ram, 250GB SSD) using Parallels.
When I access the DVD from my USB optical drive, I can open up the ESRI.exe and the Quick Start Guide opens up as expected. I then click the 'Setup' hot button to the right of 'ArcGIS for Desktop', and a User Account Control window appears asking if I'd like to allow the program 'ArcGIS for Desktop 10.1 to make changes to this computer?'
I select 'Yes', at which point the User Account Control window disappears, and exactly nothing happens. The Setup does not begin. As well, the 'Install Guide' hot button to the right of 'Setup' does not link to a valid file.
Any ideas what could be inhibiting the installation?
