Brand new installation of Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.3 on an iMac 27 inch Retina display late 2015 model.
Graphics card: AMD Radeon R9 M395 2 GB
By brand new installation it is understood that the 2TB Fusion hard drive was completely wiped and newly formatted via terminal in recovery mode. Afterwards the system was installed from scratch using a recently downloaded distribution of High Sierra from the App Store via USB boot disk.
The reason I went through that procedure was to be 100% sure that the issue is not concerning a faulty OS installation on my iMac. Previous time I refreshed the OS installation was several months ago.
Sketchup 2018. Trial version. Downloaded directly from the Sketchup website on the day this message was posted: the 2th of March 2018.
Installed as one of the first applications in the new High Sierra installation.
As soon as Sketchup is launched, it shows the initial startup screen and suggests to choose the modelling template. After the “Start using Sketchup” button is pressed the application crashes milliseconds later. Extremely annoying.
Can someone please explain, what this error has to do with and is there any known fix for it at the moment?
Been trying to launch Sketchup for more than a week this year, first I though there might have been a problem with Mac OS, that’s why it took a while to reinstall it, however now we have clear evidence that the issue is in Sketchup itself.
Please advise solutions
