I've not used SKETCHUP for about a month or so & just fired it up today(20th July 2015). I did the usual PLUSSPEC password & restart (hate that) & found I needed to load the above newer version.
This was done, but now get the following error message:- Could not load Machine ID. Please close Sketchup and try again.
There is no option to type your password & the re-start, so no where that I can see to go from here. I've re-started SU several times now, but same thing. I was thinking of the PLUSSPEC GRANDFATHER offer to renew, but this runs out on the 27th July, so can't do that either. It also says subscription valid until about 4 hours..??? The reset machine red button also does not work...............I'm stuffed..
I'll try & enclose the screen shot of the error message.
Over & out,
