Try calling their tech service, they should be able to resolve those issues, or may show some kind of "go-arround" tricks to get a similar result.

In SAP2000 software in assigning area spring to shell elements, there are available both "tension-compression" and "compression-only" springs, But even if "compression-only" is selected, in output results, tension is developed in springs.
