sketchup 2015

Post by jo-ke » Tue Nov 04, 2014 2:38 pm

As SU2015 ist out now with 64bit, it would be the perfect couple with TWL2 64 bit.

Is it possible to install it with SU2015?

In order to install a plugin to 64bit Sketchup, the plugin must also be compiled for 64bit.

We expect to have a 64 bit version available today. We will make an announcement when it is ready.

Now that you have released a 64bit version, and I thank you very much for that,

Can I ask why you have made the installer create yet another plugin folder?
What is wrong with putting it in the Default plugin folder that sketchup creates itself?

It doesn't create a plugin folder. It uses the plugin folder that is accessible for all users on your computer (that SketchUp creates).

It does install to the Program Files directory where all programs get installed. This is normal behavior for a Windows program. By using a single location for the installation (Program Files), all version of SketchUp installed on the computer can use the same installation. However, a 64 bit install can not use a 32 bit install and vice-versa. That's why the 64 bit installer installs to Program Files (which is where 64 bit programs are supposed to be installed) and the 32 bit installer installs to Program Files (x86) (which is where 32 bit programs are supposed to be installed).

That's not quite correct. The default Plugins folder for SU2015 is C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2015\SketchUp\Plugins

While twilight is using C:\ProgramData\SketchUp\SketchUp 2015\SketchUp\Plugins

Sketchup doesn't put anything there in any version.

The main Twilight Program folder should certainly be in Program Files, but the .rb loader should be in the default plugin folder.

The folder you reference is the installation location for only a single user.

The location Twilight Render V2 installs to is the plugin location for all users on the computer (as explained previously). And if it wasn't already an official SketchUp plugin location, it wouldn't work.
