Sketch up for Window XP

My laptop has windows XP on it which I'm very happy with and have no inclination to update

However I did have sketch up on it (I have autocad too) but it asked to do an update only then tell me XP & Vista were no longer supported and now it doesn't work great job google...thanks a bunch!!!

I've been trying to find a download of the older XP version to reinstall but have not managed to find one that looks genuine, this quite annoying as it was working fine and I used it a lot (house designs)

Any ideas? also if I updated windows my autocad would not work and I use the even more than sketchup

Cheers

It hasnt been owned by google for years. Its Trimble now. What version were you using?
To be fair XP is SO old now you should be looking at using 7 at least. Its like complaining you cant get 4star any more.Or run 2 pcs with XP on one and a newer version on the other. Your autocad must be ancient also, as thats been 7+ dependant for 3 years.

my landys 36 years old and also also soooo old but it does its job just fine, not going to buy a new one just cos its old

my laptop was designed for vista and ran like a pig on that, runs very well indeed on XP for what I need and would be slower on a later version of windows. The autocad I have I know very well and is ideal for what I require as was sketchup

Hi Whipster - Have you tried OldVersion.com?

Really useful for old software that's still very functional but been pulled for a newer "better" version!

Just for info, windows vista is widely know as microsofts biggest f**k up. Windows 7 is superb and stable and will run way way better than the vista it was designed for and most likely better than your XP too
