I´m trying to install OpenStudio 1.7.0 with sketchup 2015, but when the installation finish occur an error: "32-bit Openstudio is incompatibile with 64-bit Sketchup 2015. The OpenStudio Sketchup Plug-in will not installed". Can You help me?

I already checked and I installed the 32-bit version of sketchup 2015 and OpenStudio 1.7.0.

Thank you

This is not really an answer, but a general response to all the 32 bit issues above. I was trying to get this version (1.7.0 32 bit) installed yesterday on a student's laptop that was a 32 bit only machine. I noticed that his C:\ directory only had a "Program Files" folder and no "Program Files (x86)" folder as most 64 bit machines do for 32 bit software installs.

I'm not saying this is it, but I wonder if the 32 bit OS SketchUp plugin installer is looking for that "(x86)" at the end of the "Progam Files" folder to know where to install the plugin. I just presumed that most modern PCs have those two folders anymore.

Again, just my 2 cents.

@nfonner that sounds like a very likely candidate, thanks for the information!

I have added an issue for this in OpenStudio,

In the mean time you should be able to manually install the plugin by copying files manually as described here,

Would you mind replying to this answer with the directory that SketchUp is installed in? This post indicates that you have to install SketchUp on the C: drive,

The sketchUp is installed on the C: drive

I couldn't install OpenStudio 1.7.0, I try to install 1.5.0 and I have sucess. One question, in the version 1.5.0 the EnergyPlus is bundled or I have to install separately?
