Licensing for SketchUp 2014 and Earlier

If you use SketchUp Pro 2014 or earlier, your license has a few restrictions that don’t apply to newer versions of SketchUp.

Under the old licensing model, licenses work as follows:

  • Your license works for Microsoft Windows or Mac OS X, but not both.
  • Your SketchUp software handles your license administration, whereas the new model is cloud-based.
  • Network licenses cannot be checked in and out.

In this section’s subarticles, you find help with administering your license and handling common problems.

Tip: When you upgrade SketchUp Pro, you have the benefits of the new licensing model. See Licensing for SketchUp 2015 and Later for details.
