"the code execution cannot proceed because api-ms-win7shcore-obso+… Was not found, reinstalling the program may fix this problem "
This is the message I keep getting whenever I try to launch sketchup, what can I do to fix this???
Please help

Have you tried reinstalling SketchUp?

Yes, the very first thing I did

What version of Windows are you using? You put “Desktop” in your profile but that doesn’t answer the question?

The mesage as you show it seems to imply you are using Windows 7. Per the system requirements for SketchUp you need Windows 10 or 11.

It’s windows 11, was working fine just yesterday

Thank you dezmo, I’ve actually done that unfortunately it had no effect. I think I might have to format the PC

Fix your forum profile please.

It would have been helpful if you had shared that in your original post. SketchUp 2022 hasn’t changed in the time since you were able to use it so what changed on your computer? Try repairing the installation of SketchUp. Find the downloaded installer file (probably in your Downloads folder), right click on it, choose Run as administrator, and then the Repair option. Then do a cold reboot of the computer and see what happens.

I’ve even done that, guess I’ll just have to factory reset it, and hope for the best, wish me luck

Maybe that’s the best option. Before you do that, though, can you look at the history to see what changed? Might be something that you can roll back.

Sure thing, thank you

I don’t know if I did anything but you’re welcome. Good luck.
