This guide is for customers who currently use UD6 with Uniface, who are upgrading to UD6 3.1 (2.1.05.1209), and keeping the current version of Uniface, or only making a minor change, eg: Uniface 10.3.01 to 10.3.02, or Uniface 9.6.01 to 9.7.05.
If you are upgrading major Uniface versions, eg: Uniface NINE to 10, or Uniface 9.7.05 to 10.3.01, then please refer to the correct guide: Uniface NINE to 10 Upgrade or Uniface EIGHT to NINE Upgrade.

The 'release notes' have been installed with the updated DLL's in
If the installation location of the UD6 DLL files has changed, alter the
If you are currently using UD6 2.1 and your 'new' driver is also UD6 2.1, then there are no changes needed in this step - skip this step.
If you are currently using UD6 1.3 and your 'new' driver is UD6 2.1, or you are currently using UD6 2.1 and the new driver is UD6 3.1 (but not 2.1.05.1209) then you must execute this step.
Confused? There are two methods to upgrade UD6:
Method 2 will require that you export your source code, delete the source code, then import the source code. You may decide you want to use method 1 initially, then perform method 2 later. Remember if you are exporting your source code to first set
