We are migrating our code from 5.5 to 6.1. All of our code is in VIP 5.5927. The PROIV release notes for 18.104.22.168 state the following:
'PROIV Version 6 isnot genfile compatible with PROIV Version 5; the only upgrade path is to export your source code from Version 5 and import into Version 6 and then build your functions. To do this we recommend that you are on the latest maintenance release of PROIV Version 5.5. Please refer to the PROIV website for the latest release on your platform. You must have a minimum of 5.5r517or 5.5r518 and the minimum version of VIP 5.5932.
In addition to providing an export format suitable for import into PROIV Version 6, the 5.5.932 release of VIP also allows for export of other non function source (for example security settings) – this is referred to as Non-Source Export. An enhanced version of Non-Source Export, supporting more object types, was introduced in VIP 5.5949, and the matching import functionality was introduced in PROIV Developer 22.214.171.124. Non-Source Export is explained in detail below. Attempting to import a VPX generated by a VIP version earlier to 5.5932 may corrupt the Version 6 installation.'
So, we have been installing our code on an intermediate client that has VIP version 5.594, then we export it out of that client into our V6.1 client. However, we have been thinking about attempting to install some of our smaller projects straight from our VIP 5.5932 into 6.1 to reduce some overhead (do not ask me why we do not just upgrade our VIP environment to 5.5932 or higher, I would, but I don't make that call).
Is anyone currently upgrading their code to 6.1 that is using a VIP version earlier than 5.5932? I have currently upgraded a couple projects straight from 5.5927 with no issues, but I do not want to 'press my luck' if anyone else is currently doing this and having issues.
