[RE:] Upgrading 6.10 to 8.0

My $.02..

I am planning for a 6 month implementation process similar to the
original install starting the first week of January. Right now I am in
the process of building our network up by purchasing new servers and
upgrading the users. I have decided to go with a Citrix environment vs.
the cost of replacing 20 - 30 PCs. The cost of Citrix licensing, and
clients is not a huge savings, if any, to purchasing new PCs. The cost
justification can be made by the savings made on the next overhaul, and
by the ease of administration.

Subject: [Vantage] Upgrading 6.10 to 8.0

Has anyone successfully upgraded from 6.1 to 8.0?

If so, without going to much into depth, was it a long project?

Basically I want to know if I can do it myself, or if someone from
Epicor needs to do it, and whether a weekend is enough time.

I am using Progress and no terminal services. I assume I would not only
need to upgrade the server, but each workstation as well. I want to
tell everyone that on Monday morning when they come in everything will
be functional, but just looks different.

I know I will be asking this at my first Perspectives this year. I plan
to upgrade immediately afterwards. The biggest things I am looking
forward to are the auto-"booting" of users (timeout), and no lock-ups.
Our users get locked up multiple times a day.

Thanks for any input.
