How do I start SketchUp in Microsoft Azure? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello! 

    I have a bit of a difficult question, we are working with SketchUp Pro on a iMac 21,5 inch, late 2012 with a 2,7 GHz Intel Core i5 processor 8GB with a NVIDIA GeForce GT640M 512 MB. It's not the best computer, rendering goes pretty slow with big models. But because computers develop each year, we do not want to buy a new one every few years. We choose to 'rent' a computer in the cloud, from Microsoft Azure, so we could render in the cloud with the capacity we need. Now here comes the problem: we have to open the virtual machine via a remote desktop program, SketchUp doesn't like that and shows an immediate error. Does anyone know how we can get SketchUp to work in the cloud? We have tried Teamviewer, VNC options etc. but nothing seems to work.

    I hope someone can help us, thanks in advance!
