1. Open ArcGIS Administrator
2. Check if you licensed the right software and connected to the right license server
a. Click on "Desktop" folder

- The license server should be the one listed in the latest installation instructions
3. Check if your license is not expired
a. Click on "Availability" folder (below/inside "Desktop" folder)
- Review under the column "Expires" the date - if you cannot see the year, you may expand the column width
- Review under the column "Available" if it says "Yes"
III. Check if you have borrowed the various features included in ArcGIS
a. Click on "Borrow/Return" folder (below/inside "Desktop" folder
- Check that the various features are checked as "borrowed"
