Has anyone had this problem.
am trying to install Sketchup Checkup for SU2017 windows 64 bit and it never completes, only freezes up my computer(even the mouse and all buttons) so I have to restart?

Have uninstalled and reinstalled and got the same issue?

Thanks, Billy

You report that you have a Intel GMA 3100 as your sole graphics option. SU17 requires hardware acceleration (there’s no option for the CPU to do the graphics rendering as allowed in earlier version of SU) and OpenGL 3.0. I don’t know if your graphics driver adequately supports OpenGL 3.0. Try updating your graphics driver from your computer manufacturer site. Some computers allow one to update drivers directly from the Intel site.

from wikipedia.org: Intel_GMA#GMA_3100

GMA 3100

Integrated graphics found on Q33, Q35, G31 and G33 chipsets.

It supports Pixel Shader 2.0 with OpenGL 1.4, but Hardware Vertex Shader isn’t supported.

@Billy, All these chipsets are sub-par, not supported by Intel for more than 4 years, and cannot run recent versions of SketchUp, nor the Checkup utility.

These chipsets are over 10 years old (some approaching 14 years old,) and obsolete to say the least.

See the section labeled “Older Graphics Products” on this Intel webpage:

Your system ought to be able to run SketchUp quite well.

Then, PLEASE, update your forum profile so we are not wasting our time chasing the wrong information for you. (I sent you a private message with instruction links.)

There are two issues that can cause the installer to freeze. These are the installation of Microsoft libraries (.NET and the VS 2015 C Runtime.) There are some explanations in the pinned topic by the SketchUp Team to uninstall these libraries and then re-run the SketchUp installer (which should properly install the correct version of the libraries.)

Make sure that you run any software installer by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator.”

This is the onebox to the team’s pinned topic:

It was a request, Tom.

It will help others help you.

I was referring to the 3 computer questions.
(Operating system/version/SRAM, Graphics card Make/Model/GRAM, SketchUp edition & version)
