Borrow on-premises licenses for Tekla Structures offline use

You can borrow an activated on-premises license from the license server when you work offline and no license server is installed on your computer. The borrowed license is transferred from the on-premises license server to your computer, so it is not available for other users during the borrowing period.

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

To use your Tekla Structures subscription offline, see Work offline with a Tekla Structures subscription.

Note:

If you use an on-premises license server to access your Diamond, Graphite, or Carbon subscription without an internet connection, you cannot borrow your license for offline use.

Install Tekla License Borrow Tool to borrow on-premises licenses

On each computer where you want to borrow on-premises licenses, install and set up the Tekla License Borrow Tool.

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

  1. To download the latest Tekla License Borrow Tool, go to Tekla Downloads.

    At the site, click Download for a guided experience that ensures you have all necessary files.

  2. Go to Tekla License Borrow > Tekla License Borrow Tool through the Start menu or Start screen, depending on your Windows operating system.
  3. 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.

    Use the same port and host name as in the licensing dialog box when starting Tekla Structures.

    The maximum borrowing period is one month.

  2. Click the Borrow button.

  2. Close Tekla Structures.
  3. Go to Tekla License Borrow > Tekla License Borrow Tool through the Start menu or Start screen, depending on your Windows operating system.
  4. Select the Return check box in the Borrowed Licenses area to select the license to return.
