Bill,

I presume you're talking about dialogs and maps that have been recompiled on
R16SP7. I doubt this would be possible. If it were, it would pre-suppose
that there had been no structural changes to the ADS or Mapping runtime
environments since R15SP2. But, if the programmers didn't use anything at
all from releases greater than R15SP2, they may run.

Hello All:



Is anyone aware of any issues with running IDMS 16.0 SP7 Dialogs or Maps on
a 15.0 SP2 IDMS Region?



This particular Client only does load module migrations; there is no source
code in the production region.

"Actually, if I recall correctly (and please correct if I'm wrong), maps
and dialogs have always been downward compatible IF none of the new
functionality in the later release is being used.

"Those with too much time on their hands and a decent file compare utility
could run comparisons on a few key dsects to see what differences pop up.

I point this out as an intellectual exercise only; as Bob notes this is
unlikely to work.
