Default Sketchup for Win XP?

I've tried to find a free version of Sketchup for Windows XP but the only ones that seem to be available are for languages other than English. Does anyone know of a site where I could download an English-language version of Sketchup that will run on XP?

I had (might still have) an English version of Sketchup that ran on XP and downloaded it from their website at the time. I see that they now call it Sketchup Make. I believe it's the same free version but you need to provide an email address.

You could try the CNET download site. download.cnet.com and search for Sketchup.

If you can't find it or still need some help, I might be able to locate my XP version and get it to you somehow, perhaps through Dropbox

Thanks, Vince. I'll look at CNET. If I can't find it there I'll let you know. I don't know anything about Dropbox but we can figure out something.

Not sure what you ran into but a search for "sketchup for xp" turned up quite a bit...yes, for English.

The filename I had downloaded in June is "sketchupmake-en"...I found others with filenames like "sketchupmakewen" also (softonics site)...

The sketchupmake-en file is 102Mb...

Download SketchUp Make 2015

OK, I've tried all the suggested sites along with those I looked up myself. All of them either don't work anymore or point to Sketchup 2015. Guess I'm out of luck unless Vince can find his file and we can find a way for me to copy it.

Wow! Thank you, Stick. I sent you a private message with the address.

Is the executable that one would download from the 'net?
