I wouldn't use a 6.5 Client on an 5.0.10 Server, if I had a choice.  It's always safer to use a 'lower' client version, because then you are sure that all features are supported (client/server).

 There are no real issues with any of these products, afaik.  

cheers,

Tom

That doesn't mean there are no bugs, of course :-)

I've successfully used exactly that, except it was 6.0x, not 6.5x.  I don't recall if I ever installed 6.5x on XP.

I am having R6 Client , Designer and Administrator client installed on XP windows , accessing R5.0.6. R5.0.8 , R5.0.11 , R6.3 and R6.5 servers. So far none of the big issues , except the one I mentioned on previous posting about applications designed using older designer having issues with newer clients such as issues with computed subform, you can follow the link for more information :- http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/nd6forum.nsf/Search?SearchView&Query=a%20st%3Fred%20form%20cannot%20contain%20computed%20subforms&SearchOrder=0&Start=1&Count=100

Change your function to include check for XP Operating system , this I have test and works on XP.

Public Function getOSPlatform() As String
      
      Dim osinfo As OSVERSIONINFO
      osinfo.dwOSVersionInfoSize = 148
      osinfo.szCSDVersion = Space$(128)
      retvalue = GetVersionExA(osinfo)
      
      Select Case osinfo.dwPlatformId
      Case 1
            
            Select Case .dwMinorVersion
            Case 0
                  getVersion = "Windows 95"
            Case 10
                  getVersion = "Windows 98"
            Case 90
                  getVersion = "Windows Mellinnium"
            End Select
            
      Case 2
            Select Case osinfo.dwMajorVersion
            Case 3
                  getVersion = "Windows NT 3.51"
            Case 4
                  getVersion = "Windows NT 4.0"
            Case 5
                  If osinfo.dwMinorVersion = 0 Then
                        getVersion = "Windows 2000"
                  Else
                        getVersion = "Windows XP"
                  End If
            End Select
            
      Case Else
            getVersion = "Failed"

A complete lotusscript code you can cop and paste to do a quick test :-

Type OSVERSIONINFO
      dwOSVersionInfoSize As Long
      dwMajorVersion As Long
      dwMinorVersion As Long
      dwBuildNumber As Long
      dwPlatformId As Long
      szCSDVersion As String * 128
End Type

Declare Function GetVersionExA Lib "kernel32" (lpVersionInformation As OSVERSIONINFO) As Integer

Sub Initialize
      Messagebox "OS is " & getOSPlatform()
End Sub

Public Function getOSPlatform() As String
      
      Dim osinfo As OSVERSIONINFO
      osinfo.dwOSVersionInfoSize = 148
      osinfo.szCSDVersion = Space$(128)
      retvalue = GetVersionExA(osinfo)
      
      Select Case osinfo.dwPlatformId
      Case 1
            
            Select Case osinfo.dwMinorVersion
            Case 0
                  getVersion = "Windows 95"
            Case 10
                  getVersion = "Windows 98"
            Case 90
                  getVersion = "Windows Mellinnium"
            End Select
            
      Case 2
            Select Case osinfo.dwMajorVersion
            Case 3
                  getVersion = "Windows NT 3.51"
            Case 4
                  getVersion = "Windows NT 4.0"
            Case 5
                  If osinfo.dwMinorVersion = 0 Then
                        getVersion = "Windows 2000"
                  Else
                        getVersion = "Windows XP"

Ok as for your original question, as long as you have the current SPs and patches you should be fine... I have multiple pc with mutliple client versions accessing servers from 46x, 5x , 6x and 65x without any OS problems PROVIDED you have enough RAM  (min 256 should be fine).  One caveat about the designer in 6.5 and prior versions is there have been issues with being unable to open the design in prior versions after saving in 65x.
