Tekla Portal Frame Designer & Tekla Connection Designer are shipped as part of the same installation package but licensed separately.


Your License Server MUST be updated with Tekla Structural License Service version, including Sentinel RMS v10, or newer before installing the 2024 Releases.

This update is not optional - if it is not performed, server licensing will not work reliably, if at all, when the 2024 releases are installed.

For technical information:



If you intend to use either Tekla Portal Frame Designer 24 and/or Tekla Connection Designer 24 program and wish to INTEGRATE with Tekla Structural Designer you will need to ensure at least Tekla Structural Designer 2024 is installed.
