Fixing Startup Problems

If SketchUp has trouble getting started, pouring coffee on your computer won’t help. Instead, see whether the subarticles in this section can help you resolve the problem.

Some known startup issues include the following:

  • SketchUp simply won’t start when you try to launch the application.
  • SketchUp starts but then quits or freezes.
  • SketchUp tells you it can’t start because your computer’s clock was set back.
