This advanced option is only meant for administrators.

It points to the location of the Tekla Structures system folderfolder that is used for storing files that define default settings

. The system folder is used for storing files that define default settings. These include the standard, data ( .dat ), property, drawing, template, and report files, for example.

Specifying more than one system folder

You can specify more than one system folder. For example, you can subdivide the system folder on the basis of roles, to define specific settings for each role. To do this, enter the file paths of the folders, separated by semicolons.

Example :


Tekla Structures searches the folders from right to left. If files with identical names exist in several folders, the one that is read last will be used. In the example above, the files found from default\system\Concrete\precast\ will be used instead of the files with identical names in common\system\ or in any other folder mentioned before the last folder.

This is a system-specific advanced option and cannot be changed.
