When SU opens, I get the message “Extention Warning, SU crashed the last time it loaded extensions. Continue loading extension” and two options: Skip or load by selecting “load,” SU crashes, bug splat. And nothing. When I select Skip, I don’t have access to my extension but SU works fine. SU has been unstable more often, but when I installed Fredo corner, all extensions failed. I did read something about Enscape being problematic. Any ideas? I reinstalled SU a few times, including deleting the SU 2022 library folder in the application support.

Right, thanks for the tip. I do think my problem is deeper now than that since my extension manager seems to be inactive, or better, I still get the message of loading with or without an extension. And loaded with “unextepticly quits the program” So now I cannot install any extension, once I try I get “unable to handle rbz files”
As a first step, try renaming the plugins folder so that no extensions can load, and then try launching SketchUp.
If that succeeds without crashing, copy half of your previous extension files back into the plugins folder (SketchUp will have recreated the folder and put some of its own extensions there) Be sure to include both the “registrar” .rb and its associated folder for each. And for extensions that use a support library (e.g. libfredo or ttlib) be sure to restore the library file and folder too. If it again crashes, remove half of what you copied and try again. If it doesn’t crash, restore half of the remaining files. By repeating this half at a time process you will quickly zero in on the offender.
Thx, you and dave gave me an idea I had not tried yet. Slightly different from your suggestion. Instead of installing (drag+drop) SU directly in the App folder, I made a subfolder and dropped the applications in there. This seemed to overcome my gridlock problem and for now, it worked, keep my fingers crossed.
Not sure if it all makes sense but thanks for your suggestions.
I may be misreading it, but what you wrote leaves me concerned. You should install SketchUp by dragging its icon in the installer dialog onto the Applications icon in that same dialog, as suggested by the big arrow. Do not drag anything into the Applications folder or another folder in Finder, and do not open the dmg and drag anything anywhere from there! Doing otherwise will mess up SketchUp’s expectations about where and how it was installed and can lead to strange errors. If I misunderstood, ignore me.
