I have completed many Citect upgrades from version 2 to 3.x, 4.x and 5.x. I have found that when a I do a ctbackup.001 in Citect 2 and use the CtBackup for my upgrade I sometimes get a lot of compile errors.

I found that in the upgraded database in PGBUTTON.DBF some of the projects VIS_MODE entries has garble characters in the field instead of being blanks. This was causing it to return with many compile errors.

Use database editor and remove all the garble characters from the VIS_MODE field in PGBUTTON.DBF and the compile will complete without errors (as long as the project also compiles in version 2 as well)
