Solution:

Apparently there is something went wrong during the installation of the license server.
You need to run ”installanchorservice” application and restart the server and restart also the license server. After doing this you will be able to activate your licenses and use Tekla Structures. But you need to make sure that you have stopped other FLEXnet licensing services (IF ANY) before running the installanchorservice. (You can do this by using LMTOOLS), also we recommend to check their status using Windows Services snap-in and stop them using the snap-in if necessary.

If the above didn't’t work, then you need to uninstall the license server and reinstall the recent version once again with administrator rights.
