Install Tekla license server

Install the Tekla license server. This is phase 1 in the workflow Taking Tekla Structures licenses into use.

If you are using other FlexNet licensing services, you need to stop them before you install the Tekla license server. When you have completed installing the Tekla license server, you can restart the other licensing services.

To install the license server:

  1. To download the latest Tekla license server installation, go to Tekla Downloads, select the Tekla Structures version, and click All downloads. On the next page, select License server as the File type and click Apply filter. Then select the License server.

    To check the license server version to use, see Hardware recommendations for Tekla 2020 license server.

  2. For standard setup, select the options Automatic and complete the installation.

    Tekla license server is installed.

    In automatic license server installation, the license server host name is automatically set to 27007@your_host_name, where 27007 is the port and your_host_name is your computer name.

    Automatic installation is recommended. Use the Manual installation only if you are an advanced user of FlexNet or Flexlm licensing, and you need to change something in the default installation, for example, the TCP/IP port. For more information, see Install Tekla license server - manual installation.
