- INSTRUCTIONS TO INSTALL SKETCHUP VERSION 8

Extract the downloaded Google Sketchup Installer for version 8 using 7zip or some other extraction software

Copy GoogleSketchUp8.msi into a new folder on your computer.

Prepare Google Sketchup 8 for deployment

Edit GoogleSketchUp8.msi with an msi editor , like Orca, and change the INSTALLGOOGLETOOLBAR property to 0 to disable the google toolbar installation, save this to an MST file that you can call during the installation

Alternatively you can use:

INSTALLGOOGLETOOLBAR=0 when calling the MSI file if you prefer not to directly edit your MSI files

Create a new registry file to prevent the update service, and to choose the default template:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp8\Preferences]

"DefaultTemplate"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Google SketchUp 8\\Resources\\en-US\\Templates\\Temp01b - Simple.skp"

"CheckForUpdates"=dword:00000000

Deploy Google Sketchup 8

Copy the GoogleSketchUp8.msi, and the .mst to your msi deployment share, and add the msi (don't forget to add the mst too!) to the software deployment GPO.

Add the Reg key to the login script so users get the default template and do not get update prompts.

Google SketchUp Pro 8.x is an .EXE that contains an .MSI installer. You can use the same command-line params as for 7.x or put them in the Property table of a MST/Transform.

Can't see any useful command-lines with "/?" (hardly a surprise these days), but the MSI ends up in the following location (thereabouts) on Windows 7 when you double-click the EXE: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\7zS54D.tmp

To get MSI from EXE you can do following:
* Run exe file and wait till load (don't press next)
* Access %TEMP%
* Mark all in %TEMP% to delete and delete..
* In %TEMP% folder you can't delete you will find MSI package, which you can normally install as classic MSI without any issue.

Hope it helps

To find the msi you can also run procmon and the installer at the same time. Just watch file changes and filter on the name of the installer. You can also filter 'catagory contains write'.
