How Can We Help?

Transferring SketchUp to a new computer or licensing multiple computers

 NOTICE: In observance of the Memorial Day in the U.S., Trimble employees will be home with friends and family on Monday, May 29th. All emails will experience a delayed response during this time.

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.
