If you are a qualified instructor at an educational institution, or you are an enrolled student at an educational institution and use the Software in your classwork, you may use the Software for classroom teaching purposes, and classwork purposes. This includes installation and use of the Software in teaching labs at an educational institution, provided that use of the Software is by enrolled students who are engaged in classroom learning activities at the educational institution. However, if you are an employee of an educational institution and your job responsibilities are not those of a qualified instructor, you must purchase a SketchUp Pro license. For example, but not as a limitation, if you are employed as a member of the professional staff of an educational institution such as the facilities management team, you are considered to be engaged in for-profit activity and you must purchase a SketchUp Pro license.
Government agencies are considered to be commercial users and must purchase a SketchUp Pro license. (Source

Our ICT department wants to stick with the old V8 because of the forced 8hr trial of the Pro version, do you know of anything you can do to the MSI with Orca or a reg hack to turn it off/expired?

There's no way to do that at present. I raised this with the SketchUp team in May and followed it up again today; as per their advice, I have posted a feature request in their forums here:

Ah OK then, thanks for the reply
So it IS still a Google product then? Are these 'Trimble' people owned by Google then?

It's not a Google product any more, but they are still working closely with Google due to the integration with Google Earth.
There has been a reply on my request this afternoon with a link explaining how to cause the licence to expire immediately, but you'd have to do it on every machine individually:
I ran SketchUp once, let it start the trial, closed it and then set my system clock back a month. While it was set back, I ran sketchup again, and it told me that the license was expired (It must think if you mess up the time like that, that you're trying to get around the timer.)
After agreeing to the free license terms, I set the clock back to today and now I can run it no problem, without the pro trial.

Sterling job, works perfectly. I tried something similar myself but never quite managed it. Thanks!

Hi guys, ive tried this installation method, and one from the sketch up site, but when i add the license file to the program, it says invalid. Can anyone give me a valid license file or tell me how to make one? Thanks, Harry.

I have created a new MST for the latest version of SketchUp (v13.0.4812) - please use this instead of the one above in post #6. Does this work for you @Harry_Greatorex? It does for me.
To create the non-commercial license file, I installed SketchUp in a VM, ran the program once, set the date back several months, started the program again and then made a copy of the license file.
