No SketchUp Make 2017 "EXE", file


#1

I have used SketchUp for some time and I am using 2016 now. I am Color blind and 2017 is has a solution to that problem. But the Actual “SketchUp.exe” file is missing.

I have 64 system, Windows latest version of installer, NET Framework 4.5.2, and Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015.

I have Removed and Reinstalled SketchUp Make 2017 and now have an “Sketchup.exe” file but it will not open.


#3

When you installed SketchUp 2017 from its installer exe file I suspect that you did NOT you do it in the proper way…

Select the installer’s exe file icon.
Right-click > context-menu
Run as administrator

This method will install SketchUp properly,
If SketchUp is already installed, then selecting the Repair option might fix thins, without the necessity of an uninstall/reinstall ?

Trying to install SketchUp by double-clicking its installer or just ‘run’ will NOT work - it MUST be done in the recommended [only] way !

I have the EXE file now, but when I click it, the load Icon shows up and
then after a few seconds disappears.


I can't get SketchUp Make 2017

Usually caused by either graphics card that is too old (and does not support OpenGL v3,) or an out of date graphics driver.

See this help post: 2017 not launching

It’s probably the Card this is an old Computer. Thank you very much, I was
just surprised because the 2016 version works just fine.

I thank you for your help and advice.
