Arc2Google for ArcGIS 10.1/10/9x

You guys were facing lots of problems installing Arc2Google. So I spend sometime compiling the whole thing into one MSI package that will do all the dirty registration for both x86 and 64 bit Windows. I have also tested it against ArcGIS 10.1 BETA and its working like charm.

Just a reminder that I have also updated the tool to support Yahoo and Bing Maps as well.


Click Here to Download The Tool for ArcGIS 10.1 (Also supports 10)

Click Here to Download The Tool for ArcGIS 9x (9.3,9.3.1,9.2)

Note: In Windows Server, Vista and 7 you should run the installation as Administrator, to do that you have to follow the following:

Copy Arc2Google.msi to C:\

Open notepad and write the following

Save As and select All files and type the name of the file as installarc2google.bat

You should have something like below

Right click and run as administrator

Then if you couldn't get the Toolbar in Arcmap, try running ArcMap as Administrator.

Shoot me and email for any help


Some of you will face problems with registeration in 10.1 ,do the following

Go to the installation folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\Arc2Google

Download this zip file and extract it to the arc2google folder, (it will ask you to replace say yes)

then drag Arc2Google.dll file to esriregasm.exe 

Click ok

That should work

  6. Hi Hussein,
    Thanks a lot for your tool, but after install successfully on window 7 as your instruction as well as add it to the customize toolbar, I could see it appear anywhere in AcrMap. Could you please give me some advice?
    Thanks again!

  7. Hi Hussein,
    I could solve my problem already by running ArcMap as Administrator.


    thanks for your suggestions, I have updated the blog with your suggestion.

    Guys try running ArcMap as Administrator if that didn't work for you.

  10. I have the same problem with arcgis 9.3

  11. Hi Hussein,
    I downloaded well, Installed well, Its in the toolbar, but takes for ever to sync.... My internet connection is a bit first...
    What could be the problem???


  12. I would upgrade IE to the latest version (8 or 9)

    let me know if you still encoutering the problem


  13. Hi Husseuin,

    Thanks for sharing this great tool. I was able to install and load properly. The first time I used it it worked perfectly. Now, whenever I open ArcMap it tries to load the explorer window but never seems to connect to google earth. I'm using internet explorer 8 and it works fine on other sites. Any thoughts of what might be going wrong?

  14. i install MSI pakg on windows 7 for arcmap 9.3 i found the pan on templete but it does'nt work . any suggestion...?

  15. I have same issue as Rheilmayr. Any help would be appreciated!

  16. Hi, Hussein. From your images and videos, the tool looks amazing. However, I'm having the same issue as Rheilmayr and nat, though my install did not work the during the first use. My IE window opens when opening ArcGIS, but only the bottom gray bar and part of the navigation bar is displayed. The full window is never displayed and it does not connect to the website.
    Thanks for working on this tool and making it available. I look forward to being able to use it!

    1. Hello Hussein,

      I'm also having the same issues -- the tool works great for the first time when used with a map document in ArcMap but not later as noted by others. But I've something else to add -- if I open a different map than the one I've first used Arc2Google in, the tool works fine again! but only for the first time with the new map. So, the tool works very well the first time with every (new/different) map document, but when I close and reopen the document in ArcMap it does not. I'd really appreciate any comments/suggestions to make this wonderful tool work more consistently.

      Thanks so much!


    2. Thanks guys for reporting the bug

      Ill work on a patch soon. I think this issue brought it with 10

  17. I'd love to try the tool, but the download link appears broken.

  18. yeah sorry, I'm updating my servers..

    it will take around 24 hours to get back on.

  19. Hey Hussein, I installed, it's in the toolbar, but when I pres E (for Google Earth)it's shows a place in the ocean or when I press M (for Google Maps)it's shows Sydney in Australia.It doesn't sync correctly! Please Help! Thanks!

    1. I have the same problem... How can I repair it??

    4. Hi! I have the same problem, I was able to install and everything, but is not syncronizing. Can you help me?

      Thank you a lot Hussein!

    5. Hi Hussein,
      We got our IT Admin to install the tool with admin privileges but it still doesn't work when we click the 'M' and 'E' buttons on the tool.
      Have you fixed this issue in ArcGIS 10.1 yet?

  20. Hi Hussein, I'm really interested in trying this tool, but I can't get it to install on my computer. I keep getting the following registration error. I'm running Arc 10, on Windows 7 and am running it as Administrator following the above procedure.

    Registration failed.
    Could not load file or assembly 'ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Local,
    Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fc3cc631e44ad86'
    or one of its dependencies. Access is denied.


  21. I have successfully installed the software but nothing appears on the toolbar even when I tried to customize by copying from the program file.
    a message appears that no new object has been added.

    pl help


  22. have installed the tool from command line and added it to arc via the tbx file and i can see the E/M on the tool button, but when clicking them nothing happens, i have internet explorer 8 on win 7 64 bit system, ive reads the solution is to register the dll so im doing;
    ESRIRegAsm Arc2Google.dll /p:desktop

    and keep getting Registration failed. Could not write to disk... i changed the permission from read only of the install folder yet this didnt help either, any ideas?

  23. With windows 7 there isalways the problem of administrator

    To run the command or any command from command prompt you have to run the cmd.exe as administrator.

    Thus all commands will be executed as admin

  24. Hello Hussein,

    Thanks, Irma

  42. Hi guys

    I will fix thr 10.1 registerationin the next release .. meanwhile this is a work around

    The you can update the esriregasm in the arc2google folder and replace it with the one in the arcgis 10.1 installation folder
