According to Wind River systems:
There is little chance that an application developped under VxWorks
5.3 will work under 5.11 and at least has more chance (but not 100%)
to run under 5.2.
Actually the problem is that some libraries available under 5.3 are
not available under 5.2 and more especially under 5.11 (In Fact
there is total compatibilty from 5.11 or from 5.2 to 5.3 and not
the other way round; That is obviously logic).
Anyway, you can make the test by compiling (or using 5.3 compiled
modules, if at least the cpu is compatible) the ISaGRAF kernel
source under 5.11 or 5.2. It may work if all needed libraries
at the moment are available, BUT nothing ensures that in the future
non available library under 5.11 or 5.2 will not be used. In such a
case errors may appears during compiling or during the load to the
VxWorks target when the code is then linked.
