The options.xml file might be corrupted which will affect the default settings. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Close the client if it is running.

  3. Type the following %appdata% in the box.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Navigate to OCLC > Connex > Profiles > MyProfile.
  6. Right click Options.xml or Options file. This will depend on how files are displayed.
  7. Click Rename.
  8. Rename the file to Options.old (If the new Options.xml file does not resolve the issue, you can restore the old options.xml file).
  9. Close that window.
  10. Open Connexion Client.
  11. Configure your settings.
  12. Close and restart the client. Your settings should now be sticking.
