• SketchUp has grown and with that we've added new applications, new methods for licensing and Trimble ID to help keep them all connected.

  • 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: 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. Install SketchUp on the new computer.

  • A keyserver is a type of software that allows system administrators to control and monitor the usage of licenses on their network. In this setup the keyserver manages the list of available licenses for a particular program and grants access based on preset preferences. SketchUp does offer Windows Lab licenses configured for use with keyserver software. This license type will allow you to install or image SketchUp onto multiple machines; the keyserving software will then monitor license usage. Your license will need to be set up as a single-user license specifically for this use.
