My company has been running LR 7.8 for a few years now, but has nearly completed a replacement system (LR 9.5) using a separate machine as the controller. The new build of our product is the first to use Java 1.6 and will be complete before the LR 9.5 system is fully functional. My question is: Will our Java 1.6-compliant product run with the old LR 7.8 system, or will it cause problems? Anyone know? Thanks in advance.
In all likelihood no. 7.8 is very old, predating Java 1.6 by a couple of years (at least), so the odds of testing for compatibility are close to nil. Also, LR 7.8 is out of support at this time, so the odds of getting HP support or engineering assistance, particularly when you have a 9.5 instance are likely low.
