Import a .tsep extension to the Applications & components catalog

You can import Tekla Structures .tsep extensions (Tekla Structures extension package) to the Applications & components catalog.

Before you begin, download the .tsep extension from Tekla Warehouse. For more information, see Download content from Tekla Warehouse.

Some Tekla Structures extensions have an .msi installation file. You must install these extensions separately. Download the .msi installation file from Tekla Warehouse, then double-click the file to run the installation.

System administrators can copy multiple .tsep extension files to the \Tekla Structures\<version>\Extensions\To be installed folder on a Tekla Structures user's computer. The extensions are installed the next time the user restarts Tekla Structures.

  1. Click the Applications & components button in the side pane to open the Applications & components catalog.
  2. Click Manage extensions > Extension manager.
  3. In the Extension manager, click Import.
  4. Browse to the location where you saved the .tsep extension, then double-click the .tsep extension.

    Tekla Structures opens a dialog box that lists the installed Tekla Structures versions that are compatible with the extension. If none of the installed Tekla Structures versions are compatible, the compatible versions are listed.

  5. Select the Tekla Structures versions to which you want to import the extension.
  6. Click Import.

    The extension is shown in the Extension manager in all the Tekla Structures versions that you selected.

  7. Restart Tekla Structures to install the imported extension.
The extension is shown in the Ungrouped items group in the Applications & components catalog. You can move the extension to a more suitable group, or create a new group.
Tip: In Extension manager, you can list the extensions by type: extension or environment. You can also search for content based on name, author, description, and type of extension.
