Nathan,ArcHydro is pretty much fully functional for ArcGIS 10, ver 188.8.131.52 was built Dec 22, 2010 and posted to the Water Resources ftp site, and it bundles AppFramework ver 184.108.40.206.The embedded Help and Tutorial were updated Nov 15, 2010.But, as has been well publicized the HEC GeoRAS and GeoHMS will not be updated in the near term for ArcGIS 10. So if your needs center on preprocessing support for HEC RAS or HMS, you'll need to stay with ArcGIS 9.3Stuart
An alpha version of Arc Hydro 2.0 for ArcGIS 10 can be downloaded from ESRI ftp site.ftp.esri.comlogin: RiverHydraulicspassword: river.1114 orftp://RiverHydraulics:email@example.com/ArcHydro/Setup10/This is work in progresss and should be treated with care. If you choose to install it, you only need to run ArcHydroTools.msi after installing ArcGIS10 (from the ArcHydro/setup10/220.127.116.11 or similar version directory). ApFramework will be installed as well.Notes- Most Terrain Preprocessing/Terrain Morphology functions have been migrated and are avalaible as geoprocessing tools in the Arc Hydro toolbox and functions in the Arc Hydro toolbar.- Network tools: Set Flow Direction is available as a geoprocessing tool in this release.- Attributes: Compute Local Parameters is available in the menu- Main delineation tools are availableYou may report any issue by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.orgAlso, if you are getting some errors, try to turn off the background processing when running the geoprocessing tools -this is still being tested as well (using Geoprocessing > Geoprocessing options).Christine DartiguenaveArc Hydro Release ManagerESRI Water Resources Team
From what I understand, there are no plans to forward engineer Arc Hydro, TAUDEM, HEC-GeoRAS, or HEC-GeoHMS to compatibility with 10. So those of us in the H&H service lines will be sticking with 9.3 for quite some time. This is similar to when ESRI moved from 3.2 to 8.0: note how there are still people using 3.2 because of the investment people made in developing tools to work on the AV 3.x platform. That many more people have made a much more substantial investment in developing tools that work on the 9.x platform, and I suspect that very few people will be migrating to 10 that depend on 9.3 to generate income for them. Severl pals of mine had their IT dept push 10 out like the week it came out, and have had all sorts of problems going back to 9.3 so they could finish projects.
Task 0. Remove legacy WR applicationsIf you have any of the legacy WR applications released before 2/15/05 you will have to uninstall all of them, and reinstall the new suite of applications. The recommended procedure is the following:[INDENT]1) Close all Arc applications (ArcMap, ArcCatalog, ArcToolbox)2) In Control Panel in Add/Remove Programs, remove ALL water resources applications including: Arc Hydro Tools, HEC-GeoRAS, HEC-GeoHMS, Water Utilities Application Framework (ApFramework), HEC-GeoDozer, XML Exchange. Which components are installed depends on the applications you have installed. If you look in the ESRI installation directory (usually c:\Program Files\ESRI) you will see some of the installed applications.3) After running the remove application and accepting automated removal, check each of the directories in the application installation directories mentioned in step 2. If any of the bin directories contain a dll, first unregister the dll and then delete the file.4) Delete ALL directories that contained the old applications.5) Recommended �?? run a registry cleaning application to ensure there are no �??hanging�?� components left. You can use the ApRegWork application available on the ftp site as follows:[INDENT]a. Copy the folder ApRegWork from ftp://RiverHydraulics:email@example.com and run the setup.b. Browse to start>all programs>apregwork>apregwork.exeThis will open a registry cleanup window.c. Keep all defaults and select as Searching Text the application you want to cleanup (ARCHYDRO/ApFramework/HECGEOHMS/HECGEORAS) and click search. This may take 5-10 minutes depending on your computer.d. Once the search is done (Searching Test is green again), right-click in the panel showing the registry keys found and select Delete All.[/INDENT][/INDENT]If you have a newer application (released after 2/15/05) that you are updating, you need to uninstall only that application unless a different procedure is specified with the application instructions.
@ronsantini,Suspect you may have had a DLL still registered when you deleted a folder.Below are the removal instructions from the current Readme03152011.doc. Note step 5 and use of the ApRegWork utility. This tool is custom built to unregister the Water Resources components.Stuart
Ron,Did you bypass UAC by running the .exe from a command prompt "Run as Administrator", or better have you activated the Administrator account and run the ESRI.APWR.ApRegWork.exe clean-up from that account?Stuart
Stuart, I am the administrator, so when I log in, I log in as administrator. I will try your suggestions. Thanks!
Ron,It is a common admin problem with ArcGIS--failure to uninstall 3rd party extensions prior to the ArcGIS uninstall. Unfortunately, Aquaveo does not publish a AHGW cleanup utility that I've come across. You might contact their technical support to ask if such a tool is available.If not, two ways to proceed--first reinstall ArcGIS 9.x & then run the AHGW uninstaller (unpleasant since you've already loaded ArcGIS 10). Alternative--try an uninstaller, I use CCleaner (www.piriform.com) when full package is intact, but you probably want to start with Revo Uninstaller (www.revouninstaller.com)--the Pro version is necessary for 64-bit use--the freeware version is fully functional for 32-bit systems.Revo will perform as much of the uninstall as possible--it then finishes with a registry and configuration file cleanup with adjustable agressiveness. Following a Revo uninstall, I'll usually run through a CCleaner registry check to be sure all is good. Reboot! Then proceed with another ArcHyrdo 2.x install attempt.Stuart
Tom, Simply put it is not ESRI's decision. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineering, Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) is not a commercial entity and their development work on all HEC related H&H software is not bound by business considerations--rather operational and configuration management tied to the needs to the Corps of Engineers. ArcHydro and the Water Resources Application Framework development, including HEC-GeoRAS/GeoHMS is a collaborative effort on the part of U.S. Governmental, Educational and ESRI Professional services. It continues apace with the needs and requirements of each participant. ESRI has proceeded with development of an ArcGIS 10 ArcHydro extension because it does make business sense. The HEC on the other hand does not yet require an ArcGIS 10 capability at this stage of the HEC-RAS and HEC-HMS projects. The ArcGIS 9.2/9.3 compliant GeoRAS 4.3/GeoHMS 4.2 and GeoHMS 5.0 developmental versions of the software are being maintained by this effort. ESRI is not the purveyor of HEC-GeoRAS/HEC-GeoHMS, simply a collaborative partner in its development. ESRI hosts, as a public service, access the " developmental" versions of the software. The HEC retains distribution and management of the " official" versions and provides configuration management and technical support for their internal USACE offices. I'd note that in reality, in an academic, corporate or governmental setting it is a simple matter to maintain ArcGIS 9.x and desired HEC GeoRAS or GeoHMS functionality by retaining seats of ArcGIS 9. ESRI's licensing structure facilitates this and their track record suggests they will continue to support prior versions indefinitely. There are other commercial purveyors of preprocessors for the HEC RAS/HMS modeling systems, Aquaveo for example, that have implemented ArcGIS 10 capable versions of their software. A route the HEC has no operational need to pursue--yet. Stuart
