I have successfully installed and used this great plugin before on SU 2013, but during a reinstallation I unintentionally erased the old plugin folder. I have just been trying to install it anew both on 2013 and 2014, but without success. On 2013 the plugin and toolbar was installed but didn't work, on 2014 nothing happened. I tried both the extension warehouse version and the one from 1001bit's homepage (the freeware version). After stupidly trying several times I noticed that the error notice on 2014 said that 1001bitloader.rb (or similar) wasn't found in "C:/1001bitfreeware" which is of course is a folder that doesn't exist. So I simply copied the 1001bitfreeware folder from the plugin directory (installed from the homepage for good measure) to the C: root directory and now the plugin works without fail! (At least on 2014 but that's the preferred outcome for me.) So it seems the plugin is looking for it's files in the wrong place, which I guess should be easy for the developer to fix.
Many thanks for at great plugin!
Regards T

I never got the 'freeware' version to work at all, using Sketchup 2013, in Win8. I finally moved on to trying the Pro version; after following the detailed instructions and adapting to my system, the "Pro v.2" trial is working for me.

I was never able to unzip it within the plugins folder during my attempts - always unzipped within my downloads folder, then copied the two files one folder, one .rb) thus created into the plugins folder.

You DO have to run Sketchup "as admin" (google that if you need) in order to get 1001bit started the first time, and after doing so, enter the trial activation code (which is very long, and comes in an email to you).

USA reseller & tech support appears DOA - no answer to email and website not found. Oddly, it might be hard for me to pay someone to use this.
