I have been a Pro user of SketchUp since version 7.
Before Google bought it.
I have all the bought and paid for Pro versions from then until now on my computer because there are various plugins and set ups that don’t work on later versions.
All of these were bought and paid for.
Trimble have deactivated the pro licenses on all of them.
They did not ask me, they did not tell me, they just did it.
No one said when I bought these licenses that they could be taken away by any subsequent purchaser of the franchise and I’m very doubtful this is legal.
Is anyone else in this position?
This is THOUSANDS of hours of work as well as all the thousands of pounds I paid over the years for all these licenses.
And NO, the latest version does NOT work on all of these files and I don’t see why losing a lot of excellent plugins for an annual fee for non existent support is any sort of bonus.
I want my licenses back which I bought and paid a lot of money for.
NOW I see why people pirate.
