Hi All,

I have just installed SUPodium but for some reason it wont load with sketchup. I get this error even if i am not opening any file just trying to start bare sketchup. i tried removing all other plug-ins as well as reinstalling sketchup but to no avail.
can anyone help? I've search the forums there is only one other person who reported this error but its not clear if it was fixed.
this is a fairly old machine but i can still sketch in it so i see no reason to change, this is mainly my house comp which doubles as workcomputer if i have bring work home.
Specs:   Core 2 Quad 2.5Ghz, 4GB memory, 64bit Win7

thanks...

ok so i tried installing to my newer laptop and it worked fine. Is there a minimum requirement for Podium?

No, but unless you are rendering very simple scenes, you really need 8Gb RAM for rendering!

so you think its the memory thats the problem? but i don't think so, since i'm not even rendering anything yet, just trying to run sketchup and the SUPodium plugin just wont load.

Actually I think it might be a plugin or system conflict, but sometimes these things can be extraordinarily difficult to diagnose.

Okay, but it's worth remembering, that you have a low end machine for 3D modelling and rendering [smile]

Fine for simple stuff, but for anything large or complex - not so much...
