2. Dispatcher Start Program

This new version uses JAVA Dispatcher, for AS400 task if you have a customized start program for the dispatcher in your MPCOM library, copy this program/command from the backup (created by the installation process) to the new MPCOM library

3. User Defined Processes (Server)

IF you have customized Server processes, which are stored in the MPPGM library, copy these programs from the backup (created by the installation process) to the new MPPGM library (including the Source Files!)

4. MatchPoint Data

There is no new data to enter after the upgrade. The existing data will be migrated from AS400 to SQL server after the installation.
Please refer to the 'What's New'-Document to check for new control parameters that can be used in Version 6.5
