Upgraded to the 2018 version. In doing so, i lost my two extentions, Tig Roof and Dashed Lines. Tried to install Tig Roof from Plugin in store. I get this error message. "This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please insstall an app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Setting Page." Anyone have experience this situation?

At last after a private email exchange we get the issue revealed !

This is nothing to do with SketchUcation.com or its RBZ downloads...

When you download anything from the Internet your browser will having certain settings to determine what happens to that downloaded file.
These are set up for each file-type...
So your 'options' will vary depending on your Internet browser's settings, and then the file-type.
I suggest you edit your browser's options and ensure that RBZ file types are always prompted for a saved-file destination - usually your Downloads folder - but you could even avoid the 'save' prompt and always save them into Downloads ?
Otherwise your browser settings can assume you want to open the file immediately, hence the prompt to choose an app.
But you cannot open an RBZ file in an app.
You must download it, then install it from within SketchUp itself...

What's your internet-browser ?
With that info we can advice you more specifically on the required setup for downloading/saving RBZ files, in your settings/options...

I repeat the process from my recent private email exchange...
Here's how to get it [installed], step by step...
Download its RBZ file from the PluginStore.
Save it somewhere sensible - like your Downloads folder...
[see earlier about your browser's settings prompting for 'save' rather than 'open']
In SketchUp open the Extension Manager dialog from the Window menu item.
Click the bottom-left red-button 'Install Extension'.
Find and open the RBZ.
SketchUp then installs it for you...

PS: I've also merged this into the main 'Roof' thread, where it belongs...

In anticipation of your reply about what-browser...
Attached are the settings/options for the most common PC-based browsers, accessed from the top toolbar "..." or 'cog' button.





Use the one applicable to you...
