Yes on the desktop, and you should always use the latest version you can
get. V7R1 is the last release but has all the functionality in it up to
that release. If you connect to a V5R4 system it will only show you what
that system supports.

One the Host system, the upgrade from 6.1 to 7.1 should replace all the
appropriate stuff. Anything left behind should be removed from the system
unless you really need it to support older than dirt PCs.

Another reason to keep up with the latest desktop version is as IBM applied
corrections and fixes, they did not go to back releases and retrofit them.

In the end if you have any flavor of POWER Systems that can run IBM i up to
V7R1 and you have software maintenance you can run the V7R1 version of the
desktop software.

Subject: old versions of Client Access on system

Looking at a V6R1 system - moving to V7R1

Older versions of CA Exist

5763XD1 *BASE Client Access/400 Optimized for Windows old
5761XE1 *BASE IBM System i Access for Windows
5763XK1 *BASE Client Access/400 for Windows 3.1 old
5763XK1 1 CA/400 - Windows 3.1 SBCS

When new versions loaded, do previous versions need removal?
