SketchUp 8 Re-install

I had to re-install Sketchup 8 due to System problems (my System was hacked). Now, when I open Sketchup 8, I get the error message asking “Do you want to keep running scripts on this page”. And referring to Facebook’s web adress. Advice ?

Sounds like you still have some computer issues to sort. SketchUp shouldn’t be giving you any messages related to Facebook.

I have seen older versions of SketchUp talking to Facebook addresses. Not sure why we ever did that. It could be that in the way we ping google.com in 19.2 and recent versions, and bing.com in 19.3, even earlier ones may have pinged facebook.com.

Check the "i18n.dat" file in the SketchUp application folder and see what the following attribute is …

[ONLINE CHECK]
ONLINE_TEST_URL=http://www.google.com/ncr

I checked the Sketchup folder, and there is no entry like that.

Well do a search of your system drive for that file and find it …
