Subject Accessing a IB6 db from FB 1.5
Author Jerome Bouvattier

I have a single user application running on hundreds of remote sites.
Currently it uses IB6.
I would like to upgrade it to FB 1.5 embedded.

I know that ideally i should first get users backup in a transportable
format, then install FB 1.5 and restore the backup.

Before developping all this migration stuff, I wondered what I would risk in
installing FB right away.
Would I risk corruption ? Or is this just a matter of improvements users
would not benefit from ?
Would subsequent backups of those IB6 dbs be a problem ?
If some of those dbs are corrupted before the upgrade to FB15, would it
increase the chances to not recover them ?

Thank you very much for your help.
