I’m hoping to find a solution. I’m running Windows 10 on a Dell XPS, and I have a single install license of ArcMap 10.5. The Windows 10 fall 2017 Creators Update has killed ArcGIS Desktop. It can’t open after installing this update. However, ArcCatalog runs without any trouble.
I’d love any troubleshooting suggestions. I can run Desktop for a while after I roll back the Windows update, but since I can’t disable Windows updates it’s short lived, because ArcGIS Desktop starts crashing as soon as the update downloads.
Update: I checked in my license, uninstalled Arc, rebooted, reinstalled Arc, re-checked out my license, and Desktop still can't open. ArcCatalog still runs with no trouble.
