Tekla Tedds Integrator 3.0 release notes

For Version 3.0 of the Tekla Tedds Integrator, geometry data can now be transferred in both directions between Tekla Structures and Tekla Tedds, so as well as transferring data from the Tekla Structures model to the appropriate Tedds calculation, changes made during the calculation can also be transferred back to the model. Version 3.0 also introduces ‘Update’ commands which allow you to recalculate a Tedds document that has previously been linked to a Tekla Structures model. These commands give you the option to transfer data in both directions (from Tekla Structures to Tedds and back again

When activating my PAK I get the error "License activation service (LicenseActivation.exe) is not installed or registered correctly". Why is this and how do I fix it?

Issue I get the following error message as sbown in the picture below when activating my PAK  "License activation service (LicenseActivation.exe) is not installed or registered correctly".
