LightUp [V.2.4a] + SketchUp8.0 crush problem

I've tried to install LightUp version up to [V.2.4a] from [v.2.3g] onto SketchUp 8.0.
However, after version up completed, my SketchUp crushed.

Before installing v.2.4a, I used to use v.2.3g+SketchUp 8.0 normally.
Therefore, I uninstalled SketchUp and LightUp, then re-installed
SketchUp 8.0+ LightUp v.2.3g again.

But, now SketchUp 8.0+LightUp v.2.3g doesn't work anymore.
It used to work!

Now, I'm using SketchUp only and works fine, but no LightUp.

I need to use LightUp v.2.4a and SketchUp8.0 together, how can I fix this problem ?

What is this problem caused??

Give me any suggestion, please.

OS:Windows 7.0 32bit

Check SketchUp has not disabled your OpenGL graphics card. Sketchup Preferences->OpenGL->Use hardware acceleration

Do you get any messages from SketchUp?

If you install v2.4 LightUp, and run the menu Tools->LightUp->OpenGL Info, what does it print?

Actually, when I open LightUp welcome page, SketchUp crsahes, therefore unfortunately I can't check my OpenGL graphic card.
When SketchUp crashes, I see [SketchUp Application has stopped working] message.

Because of above crash, I changed lightmapui.rb script.
Line 89th {dialog.execute_script("setStrings('#{LMap::LUJSSTRINGS}')")}
Modified:# {dialog.execute_script("setStrings('#{LMap::LUJSSTRINGS}')")}

After modified script, LightUp 2.4a is working normally.
However, how can I run SketchUp8.0+LightUp 2.4a normally without modifying script?

Thank you for your information and advise, in advance.

It sounds like there is a problem with your "lightup.strings" translation file.

If you go to {SKETCHUP FOLDER}/Resources/{LANGUAGE} and rename "lightup.strings" to something else and try and again. Does it resolve the issue?

Thanks for your advice.
I followed your guidance and renamed it, but it didn't work.

However, I found the problem!
It was cause of Adobe Flash Player which I modified the program before.

Now, everything work fine.

Thank you for your time and advice, again.
