    Have any problems showed up in any tests you've run? What version are you converting or upgrading from? What OS version are the older objects created for? I haven't used Lansa for many years, so I'm not sure of any Lansa-proprietary functions needed for your generated applications. The applications themselves shouldn't have any problem. I would expect them all to have full observability. -- Tom

    when i am running ANZOBJCNV to check compability for the existing objects in LANSA library ,most of them are giving error can not convert .and old objects have different version like some are V1R3M0 some are V2R2M0 and some are V3R6 and some are V3R7 llike that .my target to check whether they would be compatible with V6. or not. Thanks

    What OS version are you converting from or upgrading from? Do the objects run successfully on your current system? Any documents on LANSA have to come from the LANSA company. Try http://www.lansa.com/ . -- Tom

    Objects from any release earlier than V3R7 had to be converted from CISC to RISC if they run on V5R4. Since that required full observability, they would only fail if observability had been removed since then. If that choice was made in the past, it cannot be undone now. They would need to be restored from saved versions that had observability.

    Any V3R7 objects would already be RISC objects, so conversion to RISC would never have been needed. However, they would still need to have observability to have the new 6.1 system convert them automatically.


    It's probably worth verifying whether or not unconvertible objects are actually used. Objects that old could easily have become obsolete, or some might have been for testing only or for one-time uses. Those could be the majority of all objects.


    No matter what, if an object is needed and won't convert, it will have to be recreated or replaced. Replacement could come from a saved version.
