1. Go here to find the item: https://warehouse.tekla.com/#/catalog/details/463b0b3a-3628-4786-bb84-02...
2. Click Download, and select Just download.
3. Once the item has been downloaded onto your computer, extract the .zip file, and double-click the item to open it.
4. Select the Tekla Structures versions to which you want to import the item.
5. Click Import.
6. Restart Tekla Structures to finish up the import.

Note that the DSTV to DXF Converter item (https://warehouse.tekla.com/#/catalog/details/65d7a79d-501e-4d33-8eb3-a2...) is not available for Tekla Structures 2017.

Hopefully, this helps you. If you continue having problems, contact your local support.
