FYI, there was a large change in the internal architecture of TC, going from TC3 to TC4. For this reason AQA included at TC compatiblity plug-in. This plug-in is NOT install with TC6 by default. You may still have to make some changes to your code to get it to work with TC6.
Give yourself at least a month or two to shake out the quirks in the upgrade. We were finding bits and pieces that weren't 100% for a while after the upgrade. It works just fine, just that, as with any major application upgrade, you want to give yourself time as a shake down to make sure all your bells and whistles are sounding...

TestComplete 6 automatically converts projects created in older versions to the new format. However, since the architecture of the tool has changed significantly since version 3, some of the TestComplete 3 scripts may need some modifications to run in version 6. Please refer to the "Migrating Projects Created in TestComplete 3 and Earlier to TestComplete 6" , "Migrating Projects - Conversion Notes", "Migrating Projects - Using the Compatibility Plug-In", "Migrating Projects - Items Changed Automatically" and "Migrating Projects - Syntax Checking" help topics to familiarize yourself with the peculiarities of the migration of projects created in earlier versions of TestComplete to the current version.
Can I just ask if you think the update is worth it? Ive tried the demo of TC6 but i can't help but think it isn't going to worth it. I would like to know what you people think who have gone ahead with this upgrade. I have over 50 projects most with over 1000 lines of code. (takes about 7 hours to run). I have had many problems with the stabilty of the tests on TC3 and would like to know if TC6 is much more reliable?
