For many years there have been largely unresolved complaints about .rbe files not loading. The normal suspects chime in with nonsense about reinstalling as an Admin and it never seems to help this issue. I don’t think I’ve every seen anyone who has found a working solution. The solution always seems to be “your Windows profile is corrupt”, reload Windows. Not in any way a solution in my view.
However, here’s an idea that people can perhaps help test…On my Windows profile, the one that doesn’t work, the .rb and .rbe files are selected to open with Notepad++. Could this be the problem? Is SketchUp expecting the Ruby interpreter to open these file types by default?
Can someone who can load .rbe files check this setting in “Choose default application by file type” in Windows 10 Settings.
