    ArcView 9.3 safe?

    Has anyone installed the updated version? Any problems? I'm a little reluctant to uninstall 9.2 and install something new...
    Thanks : )

    We've been running 9.3 without problem, but it was the first update we've done since v.3.x

    We have it in the box.
    We have a new server that is just about up and running so I think we will get it all at the same time.
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    Amazingly... no bugs. This is the first time we've been able to do an update to ArcGIS in a single afternoon, include the .sde.

    I've usually found any bugs by this point, and I've had it for a week. It doesn't look like they relocated any of my favorite tools either, for once.

    I have heard good things about 9.3. Here in our municipality, about three-quarters of us with licenses are still on 9.1 (there are probably about 100 users) because after doing a few upgrades to 9.2 and then getting the 9.3 beta version it was determined that 9.3 installed and infinitely more smoothly than 9.2.

    As I am still on 9.1, I am highly anticipating the upgrade on my machine!

    I don't use it much but I've never had any issues with it. It seems to be much improved over the version we had previously.

    I have had it installed for about 2 weeks now, no problems other than compatibility with other users if they have not upgraded to 9.3. Databases and mxd will not work going from 9.3 to 9.2, although you can save 9.3 MXD's down to 9.2 as was done when transitioning from 8.x to 9.x.

    No bugs to speak of yet.
    One question has anyone been able to install ArcSketch with 9.3?
