Tekla Structures 2019 France Environment Release Notes

Note for Tekla Structures Users: 
The change of folder tree structure in version 2019 has led to the creation of new variables (XS_GENERAL, XS_CONCRETE, XS_STEEL, etc...)
and path changes of the variables XS_SYSTEM and XS_MACRO_DIRECTORY.
Re-target these variables in your own roles. Refer to chapter 1.1 or contact your local support.

New folders structure:

In 2019, subfolders by type were created. System folderfolder that is used for storing files that define default settings

was replaced by a General one. Each roles folders contains similar subfolders.

This new tree structure is more logical and allows to classify the files by type of settinfgs.

Nota: if you use your own role, please modify the XS_SYSTEM according to the target defined in paragraph 1.1.
