Install problem before using

I have trying to install Sketchup Make but i have an problem.
With install the program asking with install to install Visual C++ 14 Runtime. But the program is not doing it.
I have the Visual Runtime installed on my computer but not using the Visual Runtime.
I have install as Administrator but nothing.
What for solution is there?

Download and install the MS runtime libs separately.

Alternatively you may want rip them from the SketchUp setup package by renaming it from “.EXE” to “.ZIP” and open it w/ an archiver software or the Windows Explorer.

Dear POSH GmbH,

The name of the install program is:

Sketchup Make 2017- 2-2555-90782-en-x64.

I have AMD.

I have made screen shots when i was installing the software.


Eric Malihan.

launch the SketchUp installation program (EXE) by “right-click > Run as Admin”.

Right click and run as Admin?
I have that all ready done before i write on this forum.

as already elaborated above, download and install (preferrably w/ admin rights) the required MS runtime libs separately:

MS Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable
MS .NET Framework 4.7.1
• Win 7/8 only: MS Universal C Runtime Update

try to install SketchUp afterwards.

There was only one solution for me that was to reinstall Windows 8.1
After that i have install Sketchup Make 2017 without problems.

But after install is see that Sketchup Make is Pro.
Why? I have not asking for Pro.

SketchUp Make installs initially as Pro to give you a 30-day trial of. IF you installed SketchUp 2017 Make, it will revert to Make after the trial period ends.
