I have downloaded the latest version of SketchUp Pro 2015 v.15.3.331 - Windows 64-bit in order to do a company-wide rollout via SCCM; the first thing I test is the behaviour during manual installation. Every time I install it, and I have tried several machines, the installer asks me to close running programs; it asks to close the explorer service, which can’t be right, right? I can also choose not to close it, which needs to be followed by a reboot. If I choose not to close the explorer, it will crash, so the taskbar disappears and does not re-appear unless I manually run the command.
As for the SCCM deployment - it is no different; the explorer will crash during the installation.
Has anybody else experienced it? I was thinking about adding a start command for the explorer after the completed installation, but it would only be a way around it and no a very good one. To me it looks like there is a bug in the MSI file.
Any comments appreciated!
