Porting set/ BW.exe upgrade ?/issue
Baan: Baan IVc4
DB: Oracle 8.1.7.x
OS: HP-UX 11.11
We need to upgrade our porting set to support Oracle 10g. While we're at it I thought it would be good to upgrade our BW clients. Since we don't upgrade porint sets nor Baan clients very often I thought we'd get to the latest version of both, porting set 6.1c.07.11 and B40c.82 on the client. My question is:
Can I use an older client to access a newer porting set?
I'm having an issue with the 82 client - it seems when a user types in their name, it is capitalizing their letters in the user id. The user puts in us10556 and the error says:

Baan says in their solution 13743 for the porting set that the porting set and BW are tied together:
"We advice to have always the latest BW version installed. But you can use a newer BW version against an older porting set version.
So it is not mandatory to update the portingset on the Baan server also, when installing the newest BW version on the client computers.
Although we advice to have also the latest version of the portingset installed on the Baan server.
The portingset and BW (bw.exe, bwprint.exe, etc) are always created as one build, and secondly the portingset components and BW components are separated from each other. So we end up with a "BW install" and a "portingset install".
This means that a certain combination of a BW version and a portingset version do have the same source code base.
Refer to the tables (PORTING SET VERSION VS. BW VERSION NUMBER) for these combinations.
PORTING SET VERSION VS. BW VERSION NUMBER:
porting set version: bw version number:
6.1c.07.01 72 "
Any ideas would be appreciated.
