OCLC Connexion client 1.72 now available

Entry Categories: Cataloging  

OCLC has released version 1.72 of the Connexion client. The information from the client known problems page is below.

New interim version of the Connexion client is available (version 1.72); addresses several problems

Connexion client version 1.72 is available to download and install. This interim version resolves the following problems:

  • In 1.70: Microsoft Windows auto-update KB918118 that prevented record display
  • In 1.70: Validation problems with Bengali, Devanagari, Tamil, and Thai
  • In 1.70: Export problem that added incorrect subfield information in field 035 when more than one OCLC control number is in the field
  • In 1.70: Missing graphics for the macro recorder toolbar
  • In 1.71: CJK problem with entering Chinese, Japanese, and Korean script character using the IME

OCLC recommends:

  • If you are using 1.60, upgrade directly to version 1.72 before the end-of-life date for 1.60, April 15.
  • If you are using 1.70 with the 1.71 patch and do not need the fix in 1.72 for entering CJK script, wait for the release of version 2.00 to upgrade. 2.00 is planned for release mid-year.
  • If you are downloading the client for the first time, download and install the complete 1.72 client software.

Important reminder! Uninstall current client version(s) before upgrading to 1.72: If you previously installed a patch for your version of the client and want to upgrade to 1.72, please remember to uninstall both 1.70 and 1.71 or both 1.60 and 1.61 before installing 1.72. Uninstall either one of the pair first; order of uninstalling does not matter.

OCLC will continue to support version 1.70, the 1.71 patch, and interim version 1.72 after April 15, when you will no longer be able to log on using 1.60.
