ArcGIS Enterprise Builder 11.3 system requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder deploys ArcGIS Enterprise on a single machine on premises. The system and hardware requirements required to run ArcGIS Enterprise Builder are listed below.

If you will license ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Pro extensions, or ArcGIS Drone2Map through ArcGIS Enterprise, you also need ArcGIS License Manager 2021.1 or a later release to configure licenses to specify which members can use these apps. See the Portal for ArcGIS administrator guide, License Manager reference guide, and the License Manager system requirements for more information.

Before you implement or upgrade an ArcGIS Enterprise deployment using ArcGIS Enterprise Builder, review the deprecation notice to determine if your hardware and software components are still compatible with the current release of ArcGIS Enterprise Builder. Also review all current system requirements of the individual product components. You can access this information from the ArcGIS Enterprise Installation Guides documentation.


ArcGIS Enterprise components require the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015–2022 Redistributable (x86 and x64) minimum version 14.38.33130. Obtain the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015–2022 file from the Microsoft site.

If the Visual C++ 2015 - 2022 Redistributable is not already installed, running the ArcGIS Enterprise Builder setup.exe will install it for you. However, running the ArcGIS Enterprise Builder setup.msi directly will not install the redistributable. If the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 - 2022 Redistributable (x64) is not already installed, running the setup.msi will fail to run ArcGIS Enterprise Builder.


The following prerequisites must be installed on the machine where ArcGIS Web Adaptor (IIS) will be installed:


You must install the ASP.NET Core Runtime - Windows Hosting Bundle, which includes the .NET Runtime and IIS support.


If you installed the ASP.NET Core Runtime - Windows Hosting Bundle before enabling IIS and the required components, you must repair the bundle installation using the bundle installer.

Microsoft Windows operating system requirements

The following 64-bit operating systems satisfy the minimum operating system requirements. Support is not provided for 32-bit operating systems; the setup only proceeds if the operating system is 64 bit.

Windows Server 2022 Standard and Datacenter

  • Prior and future updates or service packs for these operating system versions are supported unless otherwise stated. The operating system version and updates must also be supported by the operating system provider.
  • ArcGIS is only supported on 64 bit CPUs with x86-64 architecture.
  • The Desktop Experience option is required on all versions of Windows Server.
  • Windows 11 and 10 are supported for basic testing and application development use only.
  • Machines with an underscore (_) in their names are not supported. Several widely used internet host name specifications have designated the underscore character as nonstandard. Although Microsoft Windows allows you to use the underscore in a machine name, it can still cause problems when you interact with other servers and platforms. For this reason, the installation will not proceed on servers that have an underscore in the host name.
  • You cannot install on domain controllers. Installing on a domain controller may adversely affect functionality.

Hardware requirements

Disk space requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder (Windows) requires 12 GB of free disk space on the system drive (often the C: drive), where setup files are staged and log files are written. Additionally, the builder requires a minimum of 30 GB of free disk space on the installation drive, which you will specify during setup. This disk space is necessary for completing the initial installation of components and for the storage of data, logs, and configuration files as your base deployment expands. Most users need more than 30 GB of space on their installation drive; a production system should have 60 GB or more of free disk space on each machine in the deployment.

Memory requirements

It is strongly recommended that you have at least 16 GB of memory to install ArcGIS Enterprise Builder.

Firewall settings

The components in a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment communicate on specific ports. You must open these ports on your firewall before installing the software.

ArcGIS Web Adaptor communicates over ports 80 and 443. See the following for information on the ports used by each additional component that is installed using ArcGIS Enterprise Builder:

Trusted certificates

ArcGIS Enterprise deployments require HTTPS to be enabled on the machine where the base deployment is installed. For details, review steps to enable HTTPS on your web server.

If your deployment's web server is IIS, learn how to use a sample script to create a domain certificate.

Supported web browsers

The ArcGIS Enterprise Configuration Wizard supports the following web browsers:

  • Google Chrome version 118 and later
  • Microsoft Edge version 118 and later
  • Mozilla Firefox version 121 and later
  • Mozilla Firefox version 115 (ESR)
  • Safari version 16 and later

Supported virtualization environments and cloud platforms

Virtualization and cloud environment support is the same for all components of a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment. See ArcGIS Enterprise on cloud platforms and Supported virtualization environments in the ArcGIS Enterprise system requirements for details.

Coordinate system files

You may require additional coordinate system files on the hosting server and portal machines. See Coordinate system requirements for more information.
