Why am I getting a SketchUp load error?#

When SketchUp fails to load the Rayscaper extension, SketchUp will pop up a dialog like below:

SketchUp Load Error Dialog

The exact text looks something like this:

Error Loading File C:/Users/Thomas/AppData/Roaming/SketchUp/SketchUp 2022/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchUcation/SCFLicense
Could not find included file 'C:/Users/Thomas/AppData/Roaming/SketchUp/SketchUp 2022/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchUcation/SCFLicense'
...bla bla bla...

The problem is that the SCFLicense library is not installed. The SCFLicense is part of the SketchUcation Tools extension. Rayscaper depends on this library to manage customer licenses.

You can quickly fix this error by installing the SketchUcation Tools extension following these instructions.
