Transferring SketchUp to a new computer or licensing multiple computers

      NOTICE: SketchUp 2015 is here! When you look at this Knowledge Center article, be sure to pick "SketchUp 2015" from the red box above to see the 2015 version of that content. If there is no version picker, this content applies to all versions of SketchUp.

A Single-user license is associated with one person. That individual can install the license on up to 2 computers he or she is using, but only one computer can run SketchUp Pro at a particular time. To use your license on another computer, or transfer your license to a new computer, please note the following steps:

  1. If you'll no longer be using it, remove your license from your current computer following the steps in the How to Remove a License article.
  2. Install SketchUp on the new computer. Please visit the download page to get the install file.
  3. Use your license information to authorize it.
  4. If you're no longer going to use SketchUp on the original computer, you should uninstall it.

If you need to run SketchUp on more than one computer at the same time, you may consider purchasing additional single-user licenses.
