Reinstall SketchUp 2016 after installing 2017

I installed 2017 and found that my graphics card was incompatible with it. In the mean time, I had uninstalled 2016. I have the install program for Pro version of 2016 but never purchased a license since I use this program at most once a year. When I reinstall 2016, it recognizes that my free trial has expired and I can’t proceed any further without purchasing the license. How can I reinstall the non-pro versions of SketchUp 2016?

FYI, various standalone versions of SketchUp can co-exist on the same machine. Uninstalling an older installation is not necessary (and never has been required) when trying out any newer version.


#3

Going forward, there’d have been no reason to uninstall SU2016 before installing SU2017. Each version installs separately and can coexist on your machine.

Yes, but I have already uninstalled 2016 before I knew that I could have two versions so I need to

… and so the link (above) with downloads of the older installers.

I didn’t complete the response so here it is again.

Yes, but I have already uninstalled 2016 before I knew that I could have two versions so I need to get back to the 2016 version. The questions is how can I do this.

The question was answered by me above in post #2.

Thank you very much. I was able to open the Make 2016 version.

I faced a similar problem to op, trialled Pro 17, was working fine but then began crashing on start, no bugsplat window though, uninstalled and installed make 17, problem persisted. I believe all my drivers are up to date. I thus downloaded make 16 (thank you for above link), this means however i cant open important work began in pro 17. Is there anyway easy way I can convert files? if not I may be able to access the file on someone else’s version of pro 17 and then save it as a legacy file.
Do you have any suggestions for getting make 17 to work? I aim to contact Dell to check if there are any driver updates for my system (as suggested at Important Update on a few Potential SketchUp 2017 issues on Windows) as the only one i can find for intel 4600 will not install, but it appears i have that version anyway.

many thanks in advance.
