I just installed SketchUp 2017. It is a clean install, no extensions and no modifications.
It appears to work ok. Menus work, and I can pan, zoom, etc.
It hangs however at the first attempt to draw. On drawing a Rectangle, for example, it drags the box, and when you would go to the Push-Pull tool, it is hung and won’t respond further. It does the same on opening a file, that is, hangs with nothing showing. It is not usable.
SketchUp 2016 continues to work fine.
It is using 13% CPU and continues until I kill the SketchUp process, over half an hour if allowed.
My graphics card is the latest available. I have tried rebooting and uninstalling/reinstalling.
This is on Windows 7 64-bit with an Alienware M17X. ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4870, 1024 MB.
I ran the SketchUp 2017 Checkup application, and it reported all successes.
