Before you unistall Tekla Structures, do one of the following depending on your license type:

  • If you have an online-license, sign out from Tekla Structures, this releases any licenses reserved.

  • If you have an on-premises license, sign out from Tekla Structures, deactivate the license, and uninstall the on-premises license server. Follow the instructions below.

Uninstall Tekla Structures

Uninstall the Tekla Structures software and environments in the Windows Control Panel.

You can have many Tekla Structures versions on your computer. When you install and start using a new version, you do not need to uninstall the older versions.

When you no longer use a Tekla Structures version, you can uninstall it without affecting other installed Tekla Structures versions.

  2. Select a component, click Uninstall and follow the prompts. Follow this order:
    1. Uninstall the service packs.
    2. Uninstall the Tekla Structures environments.

      The environment .tsep packages are uninstalled and the environment files are removed.

      When you uninstall an environment of a Tekla Structures software version you are still using, the uninstalled environment is not shown in the Tekla Structures setup dialog box anymore.

      For more information, see Installing .tsep packages.

    3. Uninstall the main Tekla Structures software.
    4. If installed, uninstall the offline help package.
    5. If needed, delete the additional files or extensions related to Tekla Structures manually from the installation folders.

    1. The Tekla Warehouse service and content components.
    2. If you have an on-premises license: The Tekla License Borrow Tool.

      Return a borrowed on-premises license before you uninstall the license borrowing tool.

    4. If you have an on-premises license: For uninstalling a Tekla license server, see the instructions below.

Deactivate licenses and uninstall on-premises license server

Follow the instructions below when you want to permanently remove the on-premises license server from this computer. If you are upgrading to a new version on the same computer, see Update the Tekla on-premises license server instead.

  1. Make sure that all borrowed licenses are returned.
  2. Start the Tekla License Administration Tool app with administrator rights. This tool is installed together with the Tekla license server and you can find it through the Windows Start menu on the computer that is hosting your license server.
  3. In the Tekla License Administration Tool dialog box, go to the Statistic tab and ensure that no one is using the licenses.
    Note:

    Before you deactivate licenses, ensure that the licenses are not in use or borrowed. The borrowed licenses must be returned before they can be deactivated.

  4. If you have not activated the automatic server notifications (the Notify Server option in Tekla License Administration Tool), you need to stop the license server manually in LMTOOLS:
    1. Go to Tekla Licensing > LMTOOLS through the Start menu or Start screen, depending on your Windows operating system. Start LMTOOLS with administrator rights.
    2. On the Service/License File tab, ensure that Configuration using services and Tekla Licensing Service are selected.
    3. Go to the Start/Stop/Reread tab and click Stop Server.
  5. In Tekla License Administration Tool, go to the Licenses tab.

    The Activated Licenses area lists the active licenses.

  6. Select the Deactivate check box to select the license for deactivation.

    If you activated more than one license of the same type in one go, you cannot deactivate those licenses one by one, but you need to deactivate all of the licenses in one go.

  7. The Deactivate button is activated, click it.
  8. Go to the Windows Services snap-in and stop the Tekla Licensing Service.

    You can find the snap-in using the Windows start menu search.

  9. Go to the Windows Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.
  10. Select the Tekla license server and click Uninstall.

    If the license server uninstallation fails, uninstall the license server manually.
