Anyone run into issues with their code not working when trying to upgrade from an extremely old version of ColdFusion like CFMX 7 or CF8 to the latest and greatest?

Wondering if CF 8 code was easily copied and executed into CF 2016 or CF 11?

Just curious.

Thanks in advance!

In general, most of your code will probably work just fine! But you will also probably have some things that don't work, and you'll have to debug and fix them.

I'll add to what Dave said that once you do port your code, you might want to read up on language changes so you can optimize what you have so it runs better and is easier to maintain.  I'd say download the trial edition and try it.
