Possible migration from AcuCobol 6.1 to Extend 10

Good morning Sir/Mdm,
My name is Christian Murtas, and I am the PM for Creasys Srl, an Italian Cost Management and Project Management company.
Creasys is currently interested in buying Extend 10. We have software written with AcuCobol 6.1 and wanted to know if it is possible to migrate to version 10 Extend without forseable complications.

Alternatively, can we still purchase AcuCobol 6.1?

 Thank you in advance for your answer.
Christian Murtas
Project Manager / Creasys S.r.L.

It would be best to get an evaluation  of extend 10. In the docs Appendices Chapter C there are links to the known issues.

t is likely your program will compile and run fine, but there may be some fixes in later versions, and it's possible that your programs relied on the V 6 behavior. Version 6 is well past end of support, so it is not available for purchase.
