HI there ,

The issue can be caused by many things.

  1. To try to resolve this , Getting the log would be very helpful.
    If you are unable to get the log from the installer:

    You may want to try running the DirectX Diagnostic Tool
    ( found in your start button)
    Select the “save all information”
    This will generate a text file .
    Please send us the text file
    Hopefully this will give us the missing information.

  2. Make sure that Sketchup is closed when installing

  3. Could be something with the permission.

    1. Run the installer as administrator.
      → Right click on the msi and select run as administrator.
  4. Using command line in administrator mode.
    —> Launch the installer with active logging using this command :
    msiexec /i UnrealDatasmithMaxExporter.msi /l*vx \ueinstall.log

Thank you

I have the same problem, did you manage to found a solution?

Same problem for me.
In my case, sketchup is in C:\Program Files\SketchUp\SketchUp 2021

Same problem, is there a solution?

IF you use Sketchup 2023, you need to install unreal datasmith exporter 5.2

else try to follow steps from @MC_Jut

That is correct, please find the right Datatsmith plugin on this page .
