About installing Connexion client

Find the general procedure for installation and a pre-install checklist for Connexion client.


 Note: If you are upgrading from a previous version, please see Update Connexion client before you upgrade.

The general procedure for installing Connexion client is:

  1. Download a self-extracting, compressed file (file extension *.exe) from Cataloging software downloads. You will need to accept the terms and conditions before downloading the software. Save the file to a folder on your workstation or save it to a folder on a server to install to multiple workstations.
  2. Uncompress the downloaded file to install. The client extracts the files you need and starts setup. You do not need special software to uncompress.

See Install Connexion client for complete instructions.
