Tekla Structures installation prerequisites
Installing Tekla Structures requires one of the following operating systems: Windows 10, Windows 8.1, or Windows 7 SP1.
The Tekla Structures installer is available as a 64-bit version.
Tekla Structures needs the following redistributable packages that are automatically installed during the Tekla Structures software installation if they, or newer versions of the packages, do not exist on your computer:
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x64) 10.0.40219
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86) 10.0.40219
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x64) 12.0.21005
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x86) 12.0.21005
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x64) 14.0.23026
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) 14.0.23026
In addition, the following installers are automatically installed during the Tekla Structures software installation:
- Tsep File Dispatcher Launcher
- Tekla Warehouseservice for collaboration and for storing and sharing Tekla Structures content
In Tekla Warehouse the content items are stored in collections. Tekla Warehouse includes the Tekla Warehouse Service and the Tekla Warehouse web site.
Tekla Warehouse is one of the Tekla online services.
These installers are needed to get Tekla Warehouse to work properly.
You can include the Tekla Warehouse offline content as .tsep packages ( Tekla Structures Extension Package) in the Tekla Structures software installation. If you include the offline content, the .tsep packages are by default stored in the C:\ProgramData\Tekla Structures\2017\Extensions\To be installed folder. You can remove the .tsep packages that you do not need by deleting them from the folder.
The .tsep installations are run when you start the new version of Tekla Structures for the first time. The .tsep package contents are by default installed in the C:\ProgramData\Tekla\Tekla Warehouse folder. When you install the .tsep packages, you can use the Tekla Warehouse content offline.
Tekla Warehouse offline content .tsep packages are available in the Tekla Structures collections in Tekla Warehouse. If you do not include the offline content in the Tekla Structures software installation, you can download the content later from Tekla Warehouse.
Recommended hardware is described in Tekla Structures 2017i Hardware Recommendations.
