Description of the Issue: I’ve used SketchUp quite often on my old XP laptop. Now that I have Windows 8.1, I thought I’d use a newer version. I tried installing it twice and get the same problem, namely that I’m stuck with a trial version of Pro with no way of getting the free Make version. I’ve tried searching for help online only to run into a lot of people giving various permutations on ‘you must’ve done something wrong.’
No, I didn’t. I went through the download process twice. I specified that I wanted Make. The installer I downloaded is called SketchUpMake-en-x64.exe. Both times I got a trial version of Pro. I am now at the end of the trial version for the second time and there is no way that I can see of getting the free version. Just lots of red boxes and requests for a paid license key.
I don’t want the paid version. I want the free version. I tried to download the free version. Strong arm tactics aren’t making me any more willing to get the paid version. What the hell.
Selected Version of SketchUp: 2017, It’s supposed to be Make
Selected Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit
