We suggest that you complete any unfinished models using your current version of Tekla Structures.

This version is not backwards compatible. When you create or save a model in Tekla Structures 2017, you cannot open it in older versions due to database differences.

Tekla Structures 2017 can only be installed on 64-bit Windows operating systems. Tekla Structures 21.1 was the last version that supports installation on 32-bit Windows.
