Deploying ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud

This is one of those cool integrations that ESRI has been working on for some time now. Maps exported from ArcPro could be exported in .aix format. 

Basic installation steps:

  1. Download ArcGIS Maps for Adobe here – ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud | Design with Data Driven Maps (
  2. Run the installation.

If getting this message “There is a problem with Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run….”

The installation file was .msi. Lately those have been having some issues running at first. Try running as administrator.

Once the installation is successful, new extension would show up under Windows – Extensions.

NOTE: As of September 2021, available installation files for the add-on are only compatible with Enterprise 10.9 version.
