  • Highest affordable performance recommended.
Memory
  • 8GB (16GB or more recommended).
  • Memory requirements are highly dependent on model content.
OS
  • Microsoft Windows 11 / 10 / 8.1 (64-bit recommended).
  • Operating systems must be running the latest service packs / updates.

License Service
  • Tekla Structural License Service 4.0 including Sentinel RMS 9.7
License Server
  • The latest version of the Tekla Structural Licence Service, at time of release, is shipped and installed with the software. If you have chosen to have a separate licence server, it is always our recommendation that you also run the latest version of the Tekla Structural License Service on it to ensure compatibility.
  • Please see 'System requirements' on this page for specific version details.
On-premises licensing (Sentinel RMS)
  • On-premises licensing using Sentinel RMS does not officially support Windows 11 due to the fact that a version of Sentinel RMS which supports Windows 11 was not available at the time of the 2022 release. Windows 11 is officially supported when using Tekla online licensing.

  • Windows 11 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Windows 10 32-bit and 64-bit
