Download failure as "Failed-Forbidden"



Hi I am John. This is my first time downloading SketchUp Pro. As I downloaded for a while, the file stopped like “failed-forbidden”. I thought I might need some help how to solve this. And few more tips may also be helpful.

Unable to download any version

Your profile indicates you have a 32-Bit machine. Is it possible you downloaded the 64-bit version of SketchUp?


I do not know Dave


How to check that?


Where are you trying to download SketchUp from?


here in that above given site


I am trying again to download it another time, but it doesn’t show any details on bit


Try downloading the 32-bit version from this link instead.


Thank you very much… I’l try and let you know… :slight_smile:


Hi… Thank you for the tip, it downloaded successfully. And installed well.



I have SketchUp 2013 and am trying to update to 2017, however, every time I try to download it it says “Failed - Forbidden”. I’m not sure what to do, as I’ve tried downloading from both the links that have been posted in this thread.

Any suggestions?


Did you choose the mac version?


I did, indeed.
