Licensing information specific to Tekla Tedds 2021

  • Perpetual Licenses - for perpetual licenses using Sentinel RMS (both local and server), Tekla Tedds 2021 will require the activation of a new 2021 version license. You should already have received your 2021 Product Activation Key (PAK) as these are usually distributed prior to the software release. Please contact your local Service Department now if you do not have your PAK. To minimize any down time, we recommend you activate your PAK BEFORE installing this release.

Select the “Tekla Online” license method option when installing the program as shown in the picture below (only select the “Automatic” license method if you have both subscription licenses and Sentinel RMS server licenses as described in this TUA Article).

    • In order to use a Tekla Online license you will need: a verified Trimble Identity & Tekla OnlineAccount; to be a member of your company's Tekla Online Organization; have an Online License assigned to you by your Organization’s Administrator; to Sign In to your Tekla Online account when you run the program.
