Possible implications with r-code compiled with hotfix onto environment without the hotfix?

This question is answered

Hi All,

Will there be any issue(s) if I deploy the r-code (compiled on OE10.2B0864) to clients on OE10.2B0800 whom have yet to implement the hotfix?

Thank you.

Regards,
Tai Li

  • Unless the code that is being compiled is using something that was added in the hotfixes and so won't be supported in the earlier releases, I don't see that there will be an issue. In fact, Unless I am mistaken, I believe you could compile in say, 11.6 and use it in 11.3 (there is a brief exception window in the OpenEdge 10 timeframe when 32bit and 64bit rcode didn't mix).

    Hope this helps.

    TIA
