Yes, sorry, that's 2GB. I can't test because I don't yet have the SU file I need to view. I'd prefer not to ask the client for the file until after I check the system requirements.

Download some SKP files from Google Warehouse.
You can find some small and big files on any subject - right files to test your computer with SUV. :thumb:

On a 32bit PC you can't ever use more than ~3.3Gb of RAM, so ~4Gb is a logical choice for such chip-sets - since they come in crude 'size-steps' and they never report having exactly the RAM it says on the packet anyway.
Your PC's OS is going to use about >~1.3Gb - depending on what you have auto-loading etc.
This leaves you with a potential maximum of <~2Gb of available RAM for SketchUp/Viewer - but of course you ARE likely to have other apps running concurrently too...
If your current RAM is only ~2Gb then you'll only have ~0.7Gb to run all things other than the OS... i.e. that's ~1/3rd of the maximum possible [useful] RAM you can have had installed.
You CAN probably run SketchUp/Viewer on this minimal amount of RAM, but you ought to see considerable improvements in performance if you added some more RAM to the PC [up to ~4Gb, as more on a 32bit system is 'wasted'] - RAM is now relatively inexpensive...
Also your Graphics card will impinge on your PC's usability, but I think that adding a better GC that might way out-class the RAM is not your best initial approach initially... :?

I agree. It's is preferable that you start your own topic, rather than take one offtopic. (But stuff happens..)
:P

BTW, I did report the broken link a couple of weeks ago.

    Hi There,

    The measuring tool is definitely a must have.
    Clients are always after numbers after all ;)
