Clarion 6.3 to 7.

Clarion 6.3 to 7.

(OP)
I've been using Clarion 6.3 pretty much since it was released.

The very large app I administer is written in legacy templates, which I'd probably want to stay with.

Has anyone upgraded to V7 using legacy templates ?

Was it easy ?

Was it worth doing ?

Are there any major advantages / problems ?

Any feedback gratefully received.

RE: Clarion 6.3 to 7.

Has anyone upgraded to V7 using legacy templates ? We did upgrade of the big project.
Was it easy ? Not. 1000+ errors. Mostly Windows and Reports templates. Every one had to be manualy corrected. Legacy Embeds worked without problems.
Was it worth doing ? No but we had to. We upgraded office PCs with windows 7 64bit ( we do others things too )
Are there any major advantages / problems ? Early versions of C7 were very buggy. We lost a lot of work hours to crashes and corrupted files. Later is more stable. Don't konow about C8.
