Attention Users Upgrading from SketchUp 8 to SketchUp 2013
First, download the latest version of Profile Builder from Smustard. You may need to login using the MySmustard toolbar to access your past purchases. Or, find the original download link that Smustard sent you when you purchased.
Install the plugin as described in the section above.
Go to your SketchUp 8 plugins folder and find the folder ‘ProfileBuilder/Libraries’. This contains all of your custom profile libraries.
Copy all of the PLB files from this folder to the corresponding folder for SketchUp 2013 (../plugins/DM_ProfileBuilder/Libraries). You may need to be logged in as an administrator to do this.
Ensure that you do not have two versions of Profile Builder inside your plugins folder. If you have multiple versions, delete the file ‘pb_loader.rb’ and the folder ‘ProfileBuilder’ from your plugins folder but make sure that you have first transferred your custom libraries into the ‘DM_ProfileBuilder/Libraries’ folder.
