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