The Question is:
We are running OpenVMS v7.1 on VAX and Pathworks v6.0A. We want to upgrade to
Pathworks v6.1 because we need to begin adding Windows 2000 machines to this
domain. Can our current version of OpenVMS support Pathworks v6.1 or do we
need to upgrade VMS fir
st? And if so, to what version?
I tried searching for this in the FAQ and ATW Archives but could not find the
answer. Thank you very much for your help.
The Answer is :
OpenVMS VAX V7.1 is no longer supported, and an upgrade to a supported
OpenVMS VAX release is thus recommended.

The OpenVMS Wizard would tend to assume this to work, but would not
expect that this or other configurations based on OpenVMS VAX V7.1
would currently be considered to be supported configurations. Again,
PATHWORKS V6.1 will probably work on this OpenVMS VAX version, but
will not be considered supported.
If you choose to use it, PATHWORKS V6.1 will require an upgraded
client-access license; the obscurely-named PWLMXXXCA07.03 license
PAK is necessary.
