Set up Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool for Tekla Structures offline use

You can use Tekla Structures offline by borrowing Tekla Structures licenses with Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool.

Before you start, download and install the latest Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool from the Tekla Downloads product download page.

You can use the same Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool for borrowing licenses for different Tekla Structures versions. The version of Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool should be the same as the version of Tekla Structures license server.

To set up Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool for Tekla Structures offline use:

  1. Go to Tekla Structures License Borrow > Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool through the Start menu or Start screen , depending on your Windows operating system.
  2. In the Borrow from License Server dialog box, enter the port number and the hostname (computer name) of the license server in the Server box in the format port@hostname , for example, 27007@server_hostname.

  3. Click OK.
  4. If you administrator has sent you a customized product ID file, open the file now and update the list of accessible licenses:
    1. Click Open.
    2. In the Select Product ID file dialog box, select the product ID file and click Open.

      The Products area in the Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool is updated.

  5. In the Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool dialog box, click Language and change the language of the Tekla Structures License Borrow Tool user interface, if necessary.
Note:

When you start Tekla Structures , and if Tekla Structures does not start with the borrowed license, enter an asterisk (*) in the Server address box of the Connect to License Server dialog box. This will force Tekla Structures to search for all possible locations for the license. This may take a while.
