    download sketchup and use 7zip or similar to extract the exe to a folder this will have the msi inside, did the same thing earlier this week.

    If you need it sooner we got it from here: Google - SketchUp - 8 | ITNinja.

    Follow the instructions and you should be fine.

    Very good website for silent package installs.

    Just done this myself, here are my notes:

    Extracted msi from exe using 7zip

    Added to installation command to stop toolbar install: INSTALLGOOGLETOOLBAR=0

    Rolled out following reg frags:
    To set default template and stop app checking for updates
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp8\Prefer ences]
    "DefaultTemplate"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Google SketchUp 8\\Resources\\en-US\\Templates\\Temp01b - Simple.skp"
    "CheckForUpdates"=dword:00000000

    To disable the welcome screen
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp8\Welcom eDialog]
    "ShowOnStartup"=dword:00000000
    Job done.

    I have the sketchup msi file extracted by 7zip but when I apply it to a PC in an OU using software installation package in GPO it doesn't install. Anyone know where I am going wrong?
