Make 2017 installation oddity



Installation of Make 2017 appears to hang during the installation of a universal display driver. That particular window repeatedly shows the lengthening progress bar reaching the right side of the window and recycling to the left. It does not simply go once from left to right. It continues the bar cycling for many minutes, at which time I decided something was wrong, and possibly infected. Norton shows all is protected, but I think it worth checking with the forum.

Why don’t you update your graphic card directly from the AMD website?

Are you on a laptop? If using a laptop, by default, the computer wants to use the MB graphics chip to save power. You need to override that in the graphic card control panel, choosing to use the graphic card for SU.


I believe what your seeing is the attempt to install the Microsoft C++ Runtime package.

You can go to Microsoft download, and install this component separately.
This is page for Windows versions < 10 (8.1, 8, 7, Vista, & older)

#Then be sure you have installed update KB2999226:

The same goes for the Microsoft .NET 4.5.2 Framework install.
This is page for Windows versions < 10 (8.1, 8, 7, Vista, & older)

I think the Windows 10 would come with these already installed, and Windows Update should have kept them updated.

Then reboot, then try the SketchUp install again, (being sure to right-click and “Run as administrator”.)
