I have the evaluation version of ArcMap 10.3 and it is working well. However, I was trying to run the associated ArcGIS Pro 1.4 but it won't allow me in. It keeps asking me for my ESRI account details and whenever I put it, it pops out an error notification that I cannot use it as an individual. Please, I need assistance on this.

    It sounds like you need to license it. Which version of ArcGIS Pro do you have? That said, I'm not sure an evaluation license of ArcMap also provides a license for ArcGIS Pro. – KHibma Feb 2 '17 at 14:42
  • I believe @KHibma is correct. I don't think there is an "evaluation" version of ArcGIS Pro at this point. If you actually purchase ArcGIS Desktop you will be given access to Pro, but not otherwise. – GeoJohn Feb 2 '17 at 14:46
  • Actually, I take that back, per this: arcgis.com/features/free-trial.html - you should be able to license Pro with a named user account. – KHibma Feb 2 '17 at 14:49
  • @KHibma I have version 1.0 and when it was not working, I had to install 1.4 but it is still the same story. Yea, I feel you can use it with the Evaluation Copy of ArcGIS desktop, it is even on ESRI's website, I just don't know how! – Akinbowale Mark Akintayo Feb 2 '17 at 15:09
  • @Akinology I'm not sure what happens when you sign up and get the evaluation software. I think there is a process to getting an account (named user) or license file (concurrent use) for Pro. I'd use the live-chat or call the # at the bottom of this page: esri.com/en/arcgis/products/arcgis-pro/DesktopFreeTrial – KHibma Feb 2 '17 at 15:20

I've just installed ArcMap & ArcGIS Pro trials. These two links will give you some background info: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/get-started/install-and-sign-in-to-arcgis-pro.htm

You should have been prompted to create a new ESRI account with your trial. Using these account details, log into My ESRI and authorise access to ArcGIS Pro.
