Where is the alteryx desktop config file?

When operating in our virtual environment the alteryx user configuration/settings don't always survive a reboot and we get the default set.  Where are these settings saved?  I want to back them up and restore them after a reboot.

@ephij,

 

You'll find them here:

 

C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\RuntimeSettings.xml

thx @MarqueeCrew, didn't find it there, but did find RuntimeSettings.xml in the AppData\Local\Alteryx\bin\RuntimeData folder.  Doesn't appear to have all the config settings, so may be a different file?

There are actually two .config files - one that is the default and the other is the effective. You want to update the effective one, which should be located at [installdrive]\ProgramData\Alteryx\RuntimeSettings.xml

 

Best,

Zak
