Tekla Structures upgrade to a new version
You can have many Tekla Structures versions on your computer. When you install and start using a new version, you do not need to uninstall the older versions. Note however, that you can have only one service pack related to a certain Tekla Structures version on your computer.
We recommend that you complete any models you are already working on using your current version of Tekla Structures. Once you save a model in the new version, you cannot open it in the previous versions anymore.
In the new Tekla Structures version, you can use the information you have customized in the previous version. We strongly recommend that you create project and firm folders, and store the files you customize in these folders. Tekla Structures does not replace the files in project and firm folders when you install a new version. If you do not use project and firm folders, you need to transfer the customized information to the new version manually.
You can use the Migration Wizard tool to copy some of the personal settings to the new version. You can skip the copying if you do not want to copy the settings, or if you want to copy the settings from some other Tekla Structures version than suggested in Migration Wizardtool that is used when taking into use an updated version of Tekla Structures for copying settings defined by the user in the earlier version
The migration wizard can be used to copy settings included in initialization files.
