Direct Manipulation Platform failed to initialize - error messages when opening Tekla Structures

If the error messages Direct Manipulation Platform failed to initialize appears when opening Tekla Structures, it is most likely that 2 unnecessary extensions are installed on top of TeklaStructures Version 2020 or higher. 

Please check in the Extension manager in the application & components menu and remove Formwork placing tools - Slabs.tsep & Formwork tools.tsep. After restarting Tekla Structures the error message will disappear and the DM functionality will work again.
