You can deactivate licenses on command line with the following commands. Intechnical perspective, it is the same as if you would deactivate the licenses in Tekla Structures License Administration Tool, but without the graphical user interface.

Before you begin, Please note the following:

 In Windows 7 and Vista, you will need to run Command Prompt as Administrator.
     Note that the commands are case sensitive.

 In order to deactivate one of your activated licenses, you need to check the fulfillment ID first for that particular license.

Checking the fulfillment ID

While in Command Prompt and in Server folder, type:
Serveractutil –view
and click Enter.
You will receive a list of all the activated licenses on your server, as in the following image:

In which
