Set up Tekla License Borrow Tool for Tekla Structures offline use

You can use Tekla Structures on-premises licenses offline or off-site by borrowing Tekla licenses with Tekla License Borrow Tool.

The information on this page is not valid for Tekla subscriptions.

Before you start, download and install the latest Tekla License Borrow Tool from the Tekla Downloads product download page.

You can use the same Tekla License Borrow Tool for borrowing licenses for different Tekla Structures versions. The version of Tekla License Borrow Tool should be the same as the version of Tekla license server.

To set up Tekla License Borrow Tool for Tekla Structures offline use:

  1. Go to Tekla License Borrow > Tekla License Borrow Tool through the Start menu or Start screen, depending on your Windows operating system.
  2. In the Setup dialog box, enter the port number and the hostname (computer name) of the license server in the Server box in the format port@hostname, for example, 27007@server_hostname.
  3. Still in the Setup dialog box, click Browse and select the product ID file.
  4. Click OK.

    The Products area in the Tekla License Borrow Tool is updated.

  5. In the Tekla License Borrow Tool dialog box, click Language and change the language of the Tekla License Borrow Tool user interface, if necessary.
Note:

When you start Tekla Structures, and if Tekla Structures does not start with the borrowed license, enter an asterisk (*) in the server box of the licensing dialog box. This will force Tekla Structures to search for all possible locations for the license. This may take a while.
