Here I was, running SketchUp 8, I think it was. Up pops a “Do you want to update?” dialog. I’ve updated Sketchup I don’t know how many times over the years, so yes, sure. It proceeds to install Sketchup 2015 and blasts it over my current copy. Except… Sketchup 2015 won’t run on this computer! It’s a Macbook Pro, works fine, thanks, but it’s limited to Mac OS 10.6.8. I’m slated for a new computer next year, but for now, this is it.
Upshot is that, without saying anything about sys reqs, you just screwed me. No more Sketchup. Even nicer would be doing the system check yourselves before you suggest an update that won’t work, but I’d take just adding the sys req text in the dialog.
On your download/all page, there are NO SYS REQs listed, either! Just leaving us all guessing, digging…
FYI, we can’t all be so lucky as to run out and buy the latest hardware every year, nor run the latest OS. There are lots of people in the same boat. Besides, listing sys reqs is just standard practice for most software companies. (And please don’t tell me, Oh, it’s listed on some other page… Thanks.)
