I use SketchUp Make with 6th and 7th graders as part of a middle school Engineering Technology class. I always try to be on the current version, as it decreases the problems we have when students work on a project at home and at school.
When installing Make 2015, I follow my normal procedure of updating the software on one machine, and then using Symantec Ghost to create and deploy images. Even when I install SketchUp, create the image, deploy the image all on the same day, the computers that receive the image get the same “trial period has expired” gray screen that allows you to purchase a license or exit. No option is available to continue with the Make license. I have to go to each machine, post-image, and run the installer again to get it to go to the “pro trial expired” license status.
Is there really no way to install Make 2015, without the Pro trial? Seems like that would fix my problem, and from my brief research, a lot of other people’s problems as well. I think we really are smart enough to decide if we want the pro trial opportunity, or not.
Thanks for any/all insight.
