Please try it in your Dev environment and let me know if you have any issues.

Thats all. Double click on odi.exe.
Wondering after looking into the home screen ??? Well this is just the beginning. When you will create new mappings ( formerly called as interface) you will find lots of changes. Anyway lets proceed further.
I can see my old preference available in the drop down list.
