I just recently received my serial number and auth code for Sketchup Pro. (I am in a K-12 organization and we applied for a grant through TCEA and this is how the serial number and auth code were provided to me.
Using the documentation provided I am installing SketchupPro 2019.3 and copying over a activation_info.txt into the appropriate \ProgramData\SketchUp\SketchUp 2019 folder
Doing this the first time worked great! I opened it up and it showed a message that it was activated with a classic license for the next 2 years.
On devices with 2018 previously installed, I am uninstalling and removing the files in ProgramData prior to installing 2019. After it is installed with the same method I was previously successful with, I get a error message that says “Oops… that doesn’t look like a valid serial number and authorization code…”
I verified again that the activation_info.txt holds the correct values, but I am unable to get it work. Help!
