I’m new to Sketchup. I’ve just installed “SketchUp Make 2016” and tried to use it. The splash window shows up fine. I choose a default template, then press “Start using SketchUp” and then nothing happens. (At least, visually; in the “Task Manager”, I see that there’s a process called “Sketchup Application” that’s using about 30% of the CPU and 75MB of memory). I’ve waited for minutes, and still nothing happens.
I’ve seen that some people reported something similar, and got it solved by installing the 32-bit version. In my case, the behavior is the same whether I install the 32-bit or the 64-bit versions.
During the installation, I was asked to close some programs running on my machine; I chose the option to not close them and instead restart the computer later. Which I did.
The only potentially out of the ordinary thing is that in the Device Manager, there are two devices shown under “Display Adapters”:
- AMD Radeon R7 M270
- Intel® HD Graphics Family
Don’t know if it has any impact, but it may be worth mentioning.
Any solution/nudge in the right direction is appreciated.
